Why borrowers come to us

  • Higher Loan-to-Value required – up to 90% special use / 120% multi-purpose / 130% medical
  • Longer amortization desired for cash flow purposes – up to 25 years
  • Need to close a loan quickly – our loan committee meets every day
  • Special-use or unique property type – maybe a bowling alley, B&B or garden center
  • Expanding outside of local geography – need lender with national presence
  • Don’t want to move banking relationship – we’re purely transactional and don’t want deposits or lines of credit
  • Credit preventing bankable solution – tighter cash flow, trends off, leverage, storied history or borrower
  • Structure not available elsewhere (i.e. construction-to-perm, equipment financing, terming out line, etc)
  • Do not want loan covenants – just want to pay bills, be left alone and not worry about managing the bottom line
  • Diversification of credit sources – spreading eggs into difference baskets for protection and borrowing capacity
