LATEST NEWS & NOTES

11/5/2014:  Is it possible to get financing if you have a lower credit score? Yes it is if you can back up the "loan package" with collaterial from a home or real estate investment. Most financial institutions like to see a credit score above a 680, but we work with several lenders and financial institutions who work with us who care more about the collaterial a borrower has and the performance of the business they are looking to acquire.

11/5/2014:  Gap/bridge financing (ideal for those who are getting turned down for more conventional types of business purchase financing) is ideal for borrowers who have a down payment on a business purchase but need $20 to $125K of financing more to secure the deal. If the loan is non SBA financing then the financing may have upfront points (up to 15 in some instances) but an interest rate of approximately 6 to 11% (most of the time with no prepay penalty for early payoff). A good strategy on these types of loans is to refinance them down the road with more conventional financing with a lower interest rate and a longer time period on the note.

11/4/2014:  Just talked to a client looking to initiate a business purchase and about structuring a deal with an owner carry. This client wanted to know if it's a good idea to have the owner carry a note - do lenders/financial institutions like this type of structure they asked. Well yes they typically do - however the note has to make sense. In otherwords the interest payment in addition to the primary financing must not exceed the cash flow coming in from the business income and "stretch" the borrower. Also many of these notes will need to have "standby" period on them where the owner may not get paid for a year or two. This all depends on the lender that is selected and other financial criteria that is negotiated with the deal.

11/2/2014:  Getting professionally prequalified in advance of getting into "deal mode" is best. Just had a lender refer us a new client - this buyer lost a deal last week because they went into contract on a manufacturing company with real estate and the loan they applied for was taking too long (wrong bank selected - underwriters are known to be very slow) and the business broker pulled the deal from them in favor of a back up offer/and buyer who was prequalified and ready with the right type of business purchase financing and structured deal.
