Our guest today is a surgeon who got almost $250,000 of student loans forgiven with PSLF thanks to the new waiver. She was the beneficiary of having her loans forgiven under the current IDR waiver for PSLF. She is hoping that if your situation is similar that you also take advantage before the waiver expires on April 30th. She has also worked hard to take her net worth from a negative $350,000 after training to just over half a million. After the interview we will be talking all about probate for Finance 101.

Getting quality disability and life insurance should be the first financial chore for a doctor to complete.

If you have questions about insurance and what kind of policies would be the best fit for you, check out our insurance recommended list at https://whitecoatinvestor.com/insurance and feel the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the optimal policy in place.

Her next goal is to buy a new car with cash. She plans to save for a house eventually but currently wants to pour money into her retirement accounts.

Today we are answering your questions. We talk about capital gains taxes when selling a vacation home, then get into the age old debate about if it is a good idea to buy a house during residency. Dr. Dahle gives advice on things to think about when you are shopping for a new car, then he gives ideas for things to think about when considering buying into a practice. Finally, we answer a few questions about taxes.

At some point in our financial lives, it will be time to buy a home. A physician mortgage can be a good vehicle for a young doctor who’s just out of school and has a more effective place to use their money than on a big down payment. These loans allow doctors to secure a mortgage with fewer restrictions and a lower down payment than a conventional mortgage. But if you’re further advanced in your career or deeper into your journey to financial freedom, buying a home with a conventional mortgage and then, later on, potentially refinancing that loan to a better rate with a shorter time frame could be a great move. Wherever you are in your financial journey, make sure you use the mortgage that will be most financially beneficial for you. Hop over to our recommended tab to learn more about all of your mortgage and refinancing options at https://whitecoatinvestor.com/mortgage
