Get a Loan.
Finally, respect for what you’ve accomplished. Physicians can get special rates and put less money down than tradition mortgages.
Josh Mettle and his team offer a product for residents that handles student loans differently than a traditional mortgage and no PMI.
My team and I have access to an investor that will buy the home you want, and rent it back to you. If you decide you want to buy it in the future, they will sell it to you at a 4% mark up, irregardless of what the current appraisal is. There are some stipulations: $50,000 yearly income, home near good school, no condos, 3 pets only. Let me know if you are interested and we will send you more info.
Property Pond and Rentler are the best way to find a rental. Air BnB is also an option if you want to rent for a short time to get your bearings in this new city. No one uses Craigslist in Salt Lake. For safe and reliable classifieds, check out our local news website KSL.com . Also try Apartments.com .
Also, check HERE. Occasionally, a outgoing resident will list their place for sale. Or sometimes an attending will list a rental property.

The Match – Useful info for the match process and beyond
If you are in town for an interview and want to see some of the neighborhoods around Salt Lake City, I am happy to take you on a quick tour. Spouses and children are welcome.
The Match process is medicine’s version of a professional sports draft, but without the money or the help of an agent. Well, you have been in school for longer than an NFL player’s career will last, so you deserve some assistance. Let me help you. I’ve personally done it before… twice.
When March comes around I start visiting properties that will work for residents. That way, I get to see the good, bad, and ugly before you waste your time. Also, most people find properties online these days. So if you see one you are interested in, I am happy to take a look before you get to town and take additional pictures and video to make sure you are interested.
Connecting Seniors with Interns
Although we hope everyone stays in Salt Lake, the chances are there is someone leaving at the same time you are arriving. I am working on creating a network that facilitates smooth transitions for physicians.
Understanding the unique needs of residents
I cannot stress the complexities of working with residents strongly enough.
1. You are the busiest workers with the strangest work hours of any industry, plus, you have to study when you get home.
2. You had no idea where you were going to be less than 90 days before you started your crazy schedule
3. There is a chance that your mortgage will be for less than your student debt
The average person does not comprehend the value of your free time and will fail to make the most of it. In general, real estate agents are bad at their jobs. When faced with a non traditional client, they are horrible. Choose a Realtor who understands your situation. If you or a friend has Matched outside of Utah, we can set you up with one of our physician specific realtor partners elsewhere.
