You're just the type of investor to whom banks want to lend. Why? Because you have resources available to contribute as owner injection to any project you purchase. You are in a position of strength.

Business Lending Solutions LLC (" BLS") can identify the most appropriate financing option for your financial scenario. We're a commercial loan broker firm that provides packaging and placement of loans on behalf of our clients nationwide. We are staffed with former commercial lenders who know how to structure loan requests and who know how to deal with banks to get the most favorable terms and conditions for you.

Furthermore, we enjoy existing relationships with banks and other lenders nationwide. We know their cultures, their interest (or non-interest) in particular industries, and their specific risk appetite. As a result, we are able to more quickly and efficiently identify the most appropriate lender.

We will act as advocate and counselor from the moment prior Purchase Agreement is inked and all the way to the closing table. We can even value a business so you know if the price you're paying is a discount or a premium. Check out of website and then give us a call while you search for the right business.

Have you considered getting a partner and/or investor to front the remainder 20%?

Well if you are looking for banks,lenders. Start with local banks,lenders. Did you already meet with the bank that holds your accounts? Well you can find local area lenders,banks in your phone book,google search or contact SBA. I wouldn't buy a business where the owner wasn't willing to budge with any owner financing. A business loan will probably cost you more down the road than owner financing. But if you want to continue then some lenders,SBA lenders or banks might be willing to give you a business loan since you have most of the funds available.

Seller is willing to finance the inventory, but not any amount asked for the business.
Total is around 300K + Inventory. He is not willing to finance any thing out of 300K.

Yes, Peter is right-- you should be able to get owner financincing for the remainder. Seller's need to realize that people are having a hard if not iompossible time getting loans. If the seller wants to sell they should finance the other 20%!!!!!

Are you saying that you are putting 100% down at closing? Did you not ask for some seller financing? Seller financing is pretty much a given. And when you consider that it's a buyer's market, you should have gone for as much as possible.
