I have lent to several gas station / c-stores. Even with higher government guaranty's (90%) on SBA, banks still won't lend more than 65% LTV max on real estate (conventional loans = lower LTV). Lease is more likely and this will require an SBA loan.

I arrange financing for businesses nationwide. Importantly, I am an advisor first and intermediary 2nd. I offer guidance through the entire loan process. Let me know if I can be of assistance. I am an experienced fortune 100 banker (merrill lynch) with an accounting background (U. of Michigan and Northwestern).No obligation and no cost to the borrower.

It may be possible to get a loan for the rest but it depends on what the property value is. Lenders will usually be willing to lend you a percentage of what the property is worth. You would need an appraisal to get a loan for that. If you decide to invest your money instead, please e-mail me at I can offer you $ 4,500 a month for an investment of $ 150,000.
