ATTENTION soon-to-be-Doctors – FINALLY a program that acknowledges that you will be earing lots of money – soon, but not just yet.
Medical Doctors still in school or residency can qualify for financing with 20% down payment (up to 80% LTV) using projected income.
- “Projected income” is based on what a medical doctor is expected to earn in their specialization of practice.
- existing student loans, or student line of credit are fine
- the 20% down CAN BE borrowed funds from a Line of Credit, or other source
- part or all of the 20% down CAN BE gifted from a family member
- there is NO sliding scale – which means if you want a 1,200,000 home and you have the 20% down ($240,000) then it can still work!

Below are how the banks now have to take your debts into account for doing the qualifying math for your purchase. A bit complicated and not intuitive at all!

Secured LOC – Calculate the monthly payment on the balance amortized over 25 years using the contract rate. **Must have the statement showing the contract rate otherwise the current BoC rate will be used.
Unsecured LOC – or a Personal Line of Credit = 3% of the outstanding balance a month for the payment – so 20,000 owing @ 3% ends up as a $600 a monthy payment. YES, it is unfair.
Student Loans –
- If it’s a true student loan it should be reporting as an installment with CDA. If there is no payment, the bank will use 1%.
- If the debt is reporting to the bureau as a revolving LOC, and the client is paying interest only payments, the bank must use 3%;
- if we can provide proof that the LOC has a fixed payment and the loc has been re-written as a loan and is no longer revolving the bank can use this payment vs. 3%. In some cases, this may already be the case but it still reporting to the bureau as revolving.
