PhysicianLoans, the originator of the home loan for doctors and medical school graduates, today announced its preferred provider status with the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
As a select resource, the AOA will connect members who need to buy and finance a home with PhysicianLoans. From home selection through the financing process, the company’s loan officers and network of real estate agents will help physicians over the home buying hurdles that often surface for graduating medical students and new doctors.
Physicians often have unique financial circumstances due to years of extended education and student loan debt and need specialized home financing expertise. With PhysicianLoans, AOA members can now use the company to find lower down payments, easier terms and more flexible closing dates.
“Our affinity partners are selected for their ability to support the osteopathic physicians and medical students that we serve,” explained Mat Kremke, vice president of the American Osteopathic Information Association. “The specialty mortgage product and services that PhysicianLoans provides align with the on-going needs of our membership.”
As one of the fastest growing U.S. health care professions, the number of doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) has increased by 276% since 1986, according to the AOA website. DOs are one of two types of fully licensed physicians in the U.S. They focus on prevention, while partnering with patients on their health and wellness.
“The decision about a home mortgage is unique for physicians and medical students, who often deal with mounting medical education debt while embarking on the start of their careers and entering the home buying market, “ said Tal Frank, president of PhysicianLoans. “We are honored to be the exclusive AOA preferred provider in real estate so that more physicians are made aware that their home buying decisions can be affordable.”
