Employee buyout using Seller Financing for the business and lease option to buy for the real estate.
The business with real estate was pre-qualified for an SBA backed loan. The employee that wanted to purchase it was credit worthy but lacked initial cash down payment for the loan.
Sellers felt this employee was the right buyer and wanted to see it transition to him. Sellers were willing to carry the note on the business, offer an affordable lease, and give him a first right of refusal on the real estate in 2 years.
Seller Financing with 2 year balloon.
Obtain SBA backed financing in 2 years to payoff balloon.
Affordable property lease with escalations built in.
First Right of Refusal on property purchase.
Even thought this business is in a rural community, there were multiple buyers interested. Since the Employee that bought the business had been with them for 8 years and the Sellers started the business when they were about the Employee’s age, the Sellers really wanted to see it transition to him, so they were willing to help the Employee by financing the deal themselves. A great example of “paying it forward” to help him get his start in business ownership.
