How Do Wisconsin Physician Mortgages Work?
Physician loans, also referred to as doctor mortgages, are tailor-made for medical professionals, acknowledging their unique financial circumstances. These specialized loans offer advantageous terms like minimal or zero down payments, exemption from private mortgage insurance, and flexible debt-to-income ratios. What sets these loans apart is their consideration of a doctor's potential future income as a decisive factor for eligibility, rather than solely relying on their current income and debt situation. This approach recognizes that medical practitioners often possess significant earning potential but may currently have significant student loan debt.
By factoring in these elements, physician loans aim to render homeownership more attainable for doctors who might otherwise struggle to qualify for conventional mortgages. For physicians looking to buy a home in Wisconsin, these loans present an opportunity to turn their dreams of homeownership into a reality.
Choosing a Conventional vs Doctor Mortgage When Buying a Home in Wisconsin
If you've decided to buy a home, and you are committed to living in Wisconsin for more than five years, you should give serious consideration to putting 20% down and getting a conventional mortgage. The improved monthly cash flow will allow you a great deal of financial freedom and the ability to invest (and even spend). You'll save hundreds of thousands on interest over the life of the loan, all guaranteed, unlike investing a potential down payment elsewhere.
If you're going to buy a home in Wisconsin AND you can't or don't want to put 20% down, then a doctor mortgage loan is a reasonable option and at least as good as the other non-20%-down options.
When comparing conventional vs. doctor mortgages, physician loans do have lots of advantages, but those primarily revolve around easier underwriting requirements. A doctor mortgage can help you qualify for a loan you otherwise couldn't get.
Conventional mortgages are more difficult to qualify for, but there’s a reason for that. If you can qualify for a conventional mortgage, especially if you can make a sufficient down payment to avoid paying PMI, you’ll usually get a lower interest rate and fees. That means a lower monthly payment and a lower overall cost for your loan.
