Loan Approval Factors

- The original financing obtained was at a very high rate.
- Having now completed four full years of operations, the client sought to restructure debts to obtain more favorable rate and terms.
- Recognizing the specialized nature of the proposed financing, client was seeking a sponsoring lender for a $8M loan through the USDA’s Business and Industry Guaranteed Loan Program.
- Prior to the construction of this hotel, the management contractor completed a market study that supported completion of the project.
