A cash-out refinance is when you unlock the equity in your home by refinancing your existing mortgage for more than what you owe. This could give you access to the equity in your house to pay off high-interest debt, complete some home improvements, or other necessary expenses.

KeyBank’s Physician and Dentist Mortgage is a home loan tailored specifically to physicians and dentists featuring up to 95% financing for loans of $1,500,000 or less with no Private Mortgage insurance required.* These loans have fewer restrictions than conventional mortgages and recognize the lender’s trust in medical professionals’ creditworthiness and earning potential. *Only available to interns, residents, fellows, doctors, dentists, clinical professors, researchers, or managing physicians with a current license and a degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). Doctors and dentists that are not actively practicing are ineligible. Additional conditions and restrictions apply.


The typical timeframe for an appraisal is 10-30 days and a copy of the appraisal will be provided after the appraisal is completed, and no later than three days before the loan closes.

An appraisal is required in order to determine the fair market value of the property securing the mortgage loan. The appraiser’s report will determine if there is enough equity, or value, in the property to support the loan amount requested.

An appraisal is an assessment of the current market value of a property by an independent, licensed professional.

The home inspection is an evaluation of the condition of the property, while the appraisal is an evaluation of the value of the property.

In addition, to conducting a thorough review of the property, an appraiser takes into account different market factors, including comparable properties that have similar features and qualities that have also sold recently in the same general area as the property being assessed.


Closing costs are the fees and expenses you pay when you close on your home. They include standard expenses like appraisal fees, credit report fees, and title fees. But, depending on the specific loan and state requirements, there could be other costs as well. You can request a Loan Estimate at KeyBank to see estimated closing costs based on your specific loan scenario and property location. Your closing costs may include the following fees or charges:

  • Origination charges like application fees, processing fees, discount points, and rate-lock fees
  • Fees for services that are required and selected by KeyBank like the appraisal fee, credit report fee, tax service fee, MERS fee, and flood certification fee
  • Fees for services that are required by KeyBank, but the provider can be chosen by the consumer like title fees
  • Taxes and government fees like recording and transfer taxes/fees
  • Prepaids are the first payments for costs, such as homeowners insurance, flood insurance, real estate taxes, and prepaid interest
  • Initial escrow payment covers payment of future costs, such as homeowners insurance, flood insurance, and property taxes
  • Other costs including anything else not covered, such as an optional owner’s title policy


Extensions are available, as needed, which may require additional fees.

The interest rate is the cost you will pay each year to borrow the money, expressed as a percentage rate. It does not reflect fees or any other charges you may have to pay for the loan. An annual percentage rate (APR) is a broader measure of the cost of borrowing money than the interest rate. The APR reflects the interest rate, any discount points, mortgage broker fees, most closing costs, and other charges that you pay to get the loan. For that reason, your APR is usually higher than your interest rate.

Quoted rates are eligible to change based on market conditions until you lock your rate. Fees are subject to change based market conditions until you receive a Loan Estimate. Once a Loan Estimate is received, the fees can only change within certain thresholds or if you request a change to the loan.

Our quoted rates reflect the current market rates for that day, but they are not guaranteed until you lock your rate during the application process. You can lock your rate once you’ve entered in the subject property in the system.


Your monthly payment includes principal and interest, as well as mortgage insurance (if applicable) and escrow (homeowners insurance and tax).

Most of KeyBank’s mortgages are due on the 1st of the month, but please refer to your loan closing documentation, first payment letter or monthly statement to confirm your payment date, or call mortgage customer service at 1-800-422-2442.
