Home loans for Pharmacists


What is a Pharmacist home loan?

A pharmacist home loan is just special deals that pharmacists can get on their home loan from some lenders. The specials include interest rate discounts or an exemption from needing to pay for lenders mortgage insurance for home loans with higher loan to value ratios (LVRs).

What specials are available on home loans for Pharmacists?

Some Banks or lenders will waive the requirement for you to pay for lenders mortgage insurance for loans above 80% of the property value and/or provide a generous interest rate discount. Generally speaking if you are borrowing over 80% of the property value it is best to use a lenders that will waive your lenders mortgage insurance. If you are borrowing 80% or less than the property value (most lenders do not require lenders mortgage insurance for home loans of less than 80% of the property value), other lenders will provide greater interest rate discounts.

Why do some lenders give interest rate discounts or waive lenders mortgage insurance on home loans for pharmacists?

Some lenders consider pharmacists as one of their preferred customers. This is because generally pharmacists have good high paying stable employment and tend to have a very low incidence of defaulting on their loans. This means that pharmacists are low risk borrowers and some lenders will take the risk of lending to them without the insurance. This means that lenders like to provide mortgages to Pharmacists and are willing to encourage them with some special offers.
