GRP Capital is pleased to announce the successful closing of a Bed & Breakfast in north Florida. Our client worked diligently with Business Associate Vijal Suthar and our entire team to close and fund this loan. Our client knows this local Florida market well and felt ready to take on this new business venture. The loan provided affordable, stable financing. As a result, our client was also able to take advantage of new components of the latest Small Business Administration stimulus package. Currently, SBA loans allow several months of no payments (or reduced payments for larger mortgages) as well as waived SBA guaranty fees.
Every loan we shepherd towards closing is unique and this property was special. Our client saw the business potential of a small bed and breakfast in the heart of a bustling area. She was ready to expand her business portfolio and bring her growing management skills to this new project. In order to help her, we found a lender who was supportive of the concept of boutique inns, lodges and bed & breakfasts. Importantly, each of these properties offer their guests smaller, more intimate hospitality experiences. In addition, a boutique inn can be very nimble under changing economic circumstances.
Vijal Suthar adds her thoughts on this loan, stating, “Certain sectors of the hospitality industry continue to be profitable. Boutique Inns and Lodges are one of these sectors. It can be a bumpy road to take a loan from origination to closing. Therefore, I was particularly pleased that the client put her trust in us to close this deal on her behalf. I feel honored to have helped her realize her dreams. Ultimately, to see her appreciation and excitement on taking ownership of her new property makes all our efforts worthwhile.”
