Mortgages For Physicians

Well, we hope your new position is working out great!

While we strive to be the best at what we do here at Contract Diagnostics, we are aware there are other services you may need from time to time. We try our best to connect you to trustworthy sources in various markets. Recently, we interviewed many physician mortgage brokers and have found Doug to be like us – operating with the heart of a teacher and going above and beyond to help physicians and their families. Of note, we do not have any financial affiliations with him – he is just a great guy we trust should you need to navigate the messy world of obtaining a mortgage.

If you are considering purchasing a home or refinancing after settling into your new position, here are some important factors to consider according to Doug.

1. Refinancing your existing home

  1. Decide how long you are going to stay
  2. Determine total cost and monthly savings
  3. Find out what your break-even timeline is
  4. Generally speaking – break-even of 42 months or less, it is worth doing

2. Purchasing a new home

  1. What is an APR and why sometimes the lowest rate is not the best deal
  2. How do ARM loans work and are they right for me
  3. How much money do I need to qualify and how much will I need at closing
  4. If I do a fixed-rate loan, which is better a 15 or a 30 year

Doug can help you answer these questions and guide you through the process on what makes the most sense right now in your career. Just like us, he offers a ‘free consult’ which you can find with this link; click here to connect with Doug and his team today.
