The Ultimate Loan Program That Benefits Nurses, Physical Therapists, and People in the Medical Industry!

Are you a nurse, physical therapist, veterinarian, dentist or someone working in healthcare? Here’s the home loan program made especially for you! The Nurses Home Loan Program. For all the things that you do—it’s time someone helps you too! Call 302-703-0727 to get started today or you can APPLY ONLINE.

The Nurses Home Loan Program was designed to help nurses, as well as other healthcare providers, benefit from a housing loan that removes the roadblocks often encountered by people from the healthcare sector.

Why Do Nurses Encounter Difficulty When Taking a Home Loan?

Nurses, medical staff and other healthcare providers deal with shifting schedules, overtime, night differentials, W2 and 1009 income, and employment gaps. This gives your traditional mortgage lender a hard time. Lenders love the 8-to-5 workers who work on fixed shifts, are never in-between jobs and get a fixed compensation every month (that is, a stable income spread across a historical length of time).

And if you’re a travel nurse, you have it even harder because you tend to change employers and it’s normal to have employment gaps. You may also have non-taxable income from per-diem work and are unsure if this also qualifies when applying for a home loan.

How Is a Nurses Home Loan Program Different from a Traditional Home Loan?

Most traditional lenders lack the understanding and flexibility in handling applications of nurses and other applicants with special careers. The Nurses Home Loan Program was designed to adjust to nurse’s unique remuneration circumstances while giving them the best benefits from the start of the loan to the closing date.
