Business Loan or a Home Loan for a business?

Posted by Peter Peyman Karami on January 4, 2017 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (0)

If you've been following my advertising posts on social media, you probably already know that I have listed a Nursing home business for sale in Washington. Al though the business is a profitable business with appx 20% ROI ( Return on Investment), I found it very challenging to find a pre-qualified buyer for several reasons: I have received many calls from prospect buyers and in some occasions seller has agreed to allow prospect buyers view interior of the property. However, the first and foremost issue for all buyers is financing this business. It is clearly not difficult to finance a profitable business for most buyers with several available business loans offered by many banks, especially the SBA loans which usually it does allow buyers with reliable qualifications purchase a business with as low as 10% down-payment. This is not the case here when it comes to buying a nursing home in Washington under the category of an Adult Family Home. Basically, this type of business are established in a residential zoned property and in a single family houses. As you may know, obtaining a loan for a single family home is defined under certain guidelines that is fairly simple and available to folks that are buying a house just to live in it. However, when the house is being used for a business purpose and that is a residence and care for the elderly, the scenario is completely different. It seems, banks don't know whether to finance the property under single family home guidelines or take the business side of the scenario and finance the house as a commercial property. Therefore, it has become a dilemma for me that whether it is possible to find a lender that is willing to finance this type of business which includes residential property or that is simply impossible and this type of business can be only purchased by cash?!

4 Easy Steps to Customize a Home!

Posted by Peter Peyman Karami on February 29, 2016 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (0)

When customizing a home, the task may seem daunting and expensive. However, filling a home with high-quality, affordable furnishings is easier and simpler than you would think.

It comes down to 4 easy steps:

Create Free Space

First on your list should be maximizing visual space. Homes are often times filled with fancy décor and furniture and to be honest a bit cluttered. The solution to this problem is quite simple. A simple glass end table with an old-fashioned lamp spews a refined, classy persona. These items can frequently be found on sale at department stores and knick-knack shops locally. Simple and unique décor adds a warm feel to any home.

Go Custom

No two houses are exactly the same so one size will not fit all. Decisions have to be made based on room size shape. Additions such as custom rugs in hallways and sitting areas add elegance and offer flexibility. Fabric type, rug size, and pattern can be selected to complement the existing furniture, wall colors and existing decor.

Also, ready to install, handmade cabinetry to your specifications maximizes space. A variety of styles, colors, finishes , woods and hardware can be selected to match your style perfectly.

The components that make up the cabinetry are often top of the line, which means your cabinets will last longer and remain in good shape. This addition adds immensely to resale value as well.

Share Your Stories

Next, it’s time to unbox all the family pictures you’ve stuffed in a dresser drawer for years. Becoming a professional scrapbooker is actually pretty easy! A great way to personalize your home is to select a handful of your favorite family photos, make a quick trip to the mall and have the photos blown up to your preferred size and placed in low-cost frames. Additionally to provide the final, custom touch to any room in the house, pictures of your child at their first baseball game or you and your hubby’s first vacation gives a welcoming feel to your guests.  Frames are easily found at your local Salvation Army or Goodwill and more often than not are very unique!

Get Creative

Finally on the to-do checklist is room authenticity. Nothing says home luxurious and custom more than originality. A simple, genius way to accomplish this feat is a themed room. If you have children then you might have to obtain their permission first but creating a fun, visually appealing themed room is an enjoyable experience.  Let your little ones choose their favorite television character and you have your comforter and pillow cases covered. If painting isn’t your strong suit, removable wall stickers are an excellent choice. A themed room can be decked out, quickly, with three or four life size removable stickers. If you prefer staying in-house to decorate your themed room, a shrine room of family heirlooms is an option. Regardless, when it’s all said and done you have yourself a simply-constructed theme room.

So, instead of dreading that looming home makeover project, follow these 4 easy steps and enjoy!
