Refinance to save $24,000/year

"FiSol got the cash my practice needed fast!" – Colorado Dentist

The Problem:

Financing a new loan and refinancing existing ones

Our client, owner of two strongly performing practices ($6 million in combined revenue), needed to finance the acquisition of two additional practices quickly, or else risk losing the purchase opportunity altogether. Simultaneously, the dentist needed to refinance the existing practices.

We needed a two-step approach, surpassing the original request and saving a significant amount each month.

Total savings of $24,000 per year!

The FiSol Solution

Two steps to complete

FiSol arranged 100% financing 100% based on the overall strength of the practices, background and experience. The resulting loan secured by the practice was based on an 80% Loan-to-Value. Shortly after successfully closing on the acquisition financing, FiSol arranged a loan of $4,100,000 to refinance the two existing practices.

Utah dentist saves $389,000

The Problem:

Our client had obtained a practice loan from a big bank at a high interest rate due to weak credit. The dentist was able to clean up past credit issues and reapplied for a rate reduction with his existing lender. But the bank was unable to reduce his interest rate.
