Financing the Purchase of Hotel with 88% SBA Loan
in North Carolina
This project as any other project we handle at the Scientific Capital, had its own peculiar factors:
- The Comfort Inn agreement was shorter than usual but most lenders only take full term contract and do not like to finance a hotel with short-term franchise contract
- The seller had multiple other companies yet filing single tax return and as such we had to rely on other documentation for the proof of the historical revenues and the expenses
- Akshat wanted all costs included in the loan, hence our loan was nearly 88% of the purchase price
Higher Loan to value and the challenges with the franchise terms made this loan less of a candidate for a conventional loan. With pressure on the closing time frame, there was no room for risk with conventiona loans and we decided to fund through the SBA program
