Financial Information

Very stable revenue base year over year. Approximate $190k in revenues each year for the last 4 years will provide an owner / operator with $107k in cashflow, average for the past 4 years, plus all the perks that come along with an operation of this type.

Current property set up would provide for both residential bank financing rates as well as commercial bank financing. This is an important consideration, given the lower interest rates that can be achieved and the higher loan to value, if necessary.
