It's true. So very true.
I spent the week hearing words like "risk" and "contract" and "interest rate" and "underwriter" and "employment history" and "debt-to-income" and "guaranty".
These words make my head hurt.
And it turns out that they make a mortgage broker's head hurt too!
Because guess what? Banks Loooooooooooooove doctors, but they haaaaaaaaaaaate almost-doctors.
A signed employment contract and a shiny clean credit report don't make a difference.
A bank account rife with dollar signs might make a difference, but we don't have one of those right now.
But wait, there is more!
Did you know that there are mortgages just for almost-doctors? Indeedy, there are.
For if it is on Google, it must be true.
So I ended the week hearing words like "good" and "end-of-May" and "pre-qualified" and "no PMI". And these words made my heart sing a tiny showtune.
Now if only those Leprechauns would lead me to the pot o' gold, we'd be all set.
