CASE STUDY: A Church and a Vendor Mortgage

Recently we were approached by a church (not for profit organization) that purchased a small commercial property but at the time did not have the financial history to approve for a conventional commercial mortgage. As a result, they gave their down payment to the vendor and the vendor agreed to give them a mortgage at a slightly higher interest for three years. They felt at the time that leasing space would be more expensive than owning space and making a mortgage payment so they completed their transaction with the vendor. They now have approached us through their commercial real estate agent looking to payout the mortgage provided by the Vendor given the current interest rate environment. With their financial statements up to date we will be working to get them a new mortgage at lower interest rates and help them own their space at a lesser cost than what they have paid previously. Their financial statements prove that they have made the payments historically at a higher interest rate which helps a bank feel comfortable that at a lower interest rate they would be able to make the new mortgage payments easily.
