Illinois Mortgage Loan Facts

At a population of 12.8 million people, Illinois can be considered a large state. Currently there are 39,482 active physicians and the average salary is normal. However, this one slightly negative factor is compensated for by the low cost of housing and living. Certainly it is a state with room for professional growth. Illinois ranks #17 as one of the best places to practice medicine. It has a low number of lawsuits, has one of the most bike friendly cities in the world and a fabulous theater scene.
