Our clients wanted to purchase a Gulf Coast hotel, but they needed to close quickly. The sellers were ready not only to sell, but to purchase another property. Not surprisingly, the sellers needed the proceeds from the sale of this hotel to fund their new enterprise.
GRP Capital was ready for this mission!
GRP Capital Managing Director Krishan Patel, GRP President Rick Patel and Loan Processor Keren Alpert were in constant communication with each other. The team also worked in tandem with the buyers, the sellers, the attorneys, the lender and the title company. Therefore, the loan was able to close quickly, allowing the sellers to take their proceeds. Even better, the buyers have taken on a very profitable hotel, which is newly renovated and should continue to cash flow nicely for them.
Rick Patel stated, “We really worked diligently as a team to expedite this loan and close quickly. We knew how important it was to the seller and the buyers. We want to do what we can to support the closing process. As a result, the seller and the buyer can preserve their good relationship with each other. We were very pleased with the time frame and the outcome.”
Is it possible to close quickly?
• Is the title report clean? A “clean” title means that are minimal liens on the property. Previous mortgages are perfectly fine, as well as EIDL loans. In addition, there should be no clouds on title, that is nothing should bar a clear chain of ownership. Sellers who wish to close quickly will often ask their attorneys or title company to run a preliminary title report, which can show if there are any issues that need attention. Refinances typically have fewer title issues.
• Is there a recent survey? A recent survey will show the borders of the real estate, the building square footage, the elevation and the flood zone. Many title companies and lenders require a recent survey. Unfortunately, in many locales, there is a shortage of surveyors. Therefore, obtaining a survey is a high priority at the beginning of the loan process.
• Is the business profitable? GRP Capital has definitely closed multiple loans on businesses that are underperforming. In these situations, the buyers are planning to make changes in the facility or the operation of the business in order to turn it around. However, in order to close a loan quickly, a currently cash flowing business is optimal.
