Image of doctor representing Grand Rapids Mi Mortgages for Doctors - PhysiciansGrand Rapids is home to a burgeoning medical industry, and Inlanta Grand Rapids is excited to announce its new Doctor Loans program! It is no secret that doctors take on a lot of student loan debt to pay for medical school. If you are one of these everyday superheroes, you may be experiencing difficulty achieving your dream of homeownership as a result. Have no fear – Inlanta is here to help! We now have two loan options for qualified borrowers through our Doctor Loans program, designed with your unique needs in mind.

Our new program includes low down payment requirements, from 3% – 5%, and can exclude deferred student loan debt from calculations, which extends your buying power. The program is designed to cover medical, dental and orthodontic professionals. We are able to use new contracts to assist in qualification if you will start your contract within 60 days of close.
