To qualify for the $1,000 bonus, please confirm with the local healthcare banker that Student Loan Planner is listed as the referral source. Then send us an email with the contact button in the bottom right to let us know.
Another note on eligibility, we can only honor this cash back deal if 1) the bank you contact is not already processing your application and 2) you do not currently have a practice loan with that bank.
When Are You Ready for a Dental, Veterinary, or Medical Practice Loan?
We see most successful prospective practice owners fit the following profile:
- At least 1 year of employment history
- $10,000 or more in cash savings
- No adverse credit events such as a bankruptcy or short sale within the past 7 years
- A history of revenue production at your current employer that supports your requested loan amount
It never hurts to reach out to at least 2 banks if you want to have a higher chance of securing the best pricing.
When to Start the Practice Financing Process
Practice financing is an involved process. The loan application is more difficult than applying for a mortgage or student loan refinance because each transaction is unique.
That’s why you want to reach out to a banker early in the process to:
- See if you can get preapproved if you have a target practice in mind
- Build a relationship so the banker can get to know you, and you can get to know them
Due to relationship oriented nature of practice financing, it pays to get information from a local banker in your area, even if you’re fairly early in the process.
Options for Acquisition, Practice Loan Refinancing, Real Estate and Project Financing
You can reach out to the bankers above about acquisitions, practice refinancing, real estate, and project financing.
Bank of America’s practice solutions team has extensive experience with all of these types of transactions. They also have the capital to finance more types of deals, while regional banks might have a tougher time.
So text, call, or email the banker for your state by clicking the map above, and please feel free to contact Student Loan Planner if you move forward in the process and want us to take down your info for eligibility for the $500 bonus for practice financing through our site.
