Medical Professionals

Match Day is almost here! Each March, hundreds of fourth-year medical students hoping to complete their education in a top program are matched with Duke University or UNC residency and fellowship training programs. Both hospitals offer many top-ranked programs as rated by Doximity Residency Navigator and U.S News & World Report.

So if your match brings you to the beautiful Triangle region of North Carolina, you’re in luck! Durham and Chapel Hill are both great places to live, attracting people from around the country with an alluring mix of sunny weather, charming Southern culture, awesome sports teams and excellent schools. But where are you going to live?

That’s where we come in. At Local Market Realty, Michele Burris and Sue Fox specialize in working with medical professionals. We have many years of experience helping Duke and UNC residents find the right home quickly, within their budget and close to campus, before their residency begins. We can help you with financing too, as we have a list of reputable lenders who provide zero-percent down “doctor loans” to medical residents.

Many residents choose to buy a home here rather than rent, because the numbers tend to favor ownership. We have helped our past clients calculate the difference between renting a $1500/month apartment and buying a home with a similar mortgage payment, and buying a home generally results in a savings of tens of thousands of dollars over just a few years. If you prefer to rent, we can help you with that too.

Choosing a residency program is one of the biggest decisions new physicians face in their careers. You’ve done the hard part… now give us a call and let us make your housing search easy.
