Financing to Start My Daycare Business

One of the biggest challenges facing anyone who dreams of owning and operating their own business is to find the finances to start the business. For starting a daycare business, the challenges are the same. To start any business one has to plan what it will cost to start the business, what it will cost to reach breakeven point and how long it will take to reach that point.

Find the costs

It is important to ensure that not only startup costs, but ongoing costs (working capital) are also factored in to ensure that your business survives the first few months/years before it can provide you with the steady revenue to make a living as well as a tidy profit from the business.

Here are some things to consider as you go from an idea to the implementation of your business.

1. Develop a spreadsheet of all costs involved; costs to startup; costs to break even, and how long it will take to breakeven.

2. Costs of startup will typically include but are not limited to:

a) Legal – leasing/closing costs

b) Licensing costs

c) Furniture / equipment costs

d) Renovation costs both indoors and outdoors

e) Furniture and equipment costs

f) Hiring

3. Ongoing costs will typically include but are not limited to:

a) Rent/lease/mortgage of the property (how much it costs monthly to pay for the premises)

b) Utilities – gas, electricity, water, telephone, internet

c) Advertising – in local directories, newspapers, etc.

d) Staffing – minimum staffing required to operate the Centre. NOTE: Staffing needs will increase as enrollment increases, but there is a minimum number of staff you need to have on the premises regardless of enrolment. Please ensure that when you do payroll calculations, that you account for all government mandated payroll taxes that you need to pay as an employer. Speak with an accountant to find this out.

e) Food for the children (if you are offering food and snacks)

f) Program material (material you need on an ongoing basis to conduct the programming)

g) Loan & interest repayments (money that you borrowed to start the business, and interest)

Reaching breakeven will depend on how quickly you will get enough clients that will cover all the ongoing costs, and service the loans you have made. You will need a month to month projection analysis to determine the amount and time required to break even.

Based on the above you will come to a conclusion on how much funds you will need to start and operate a business.

Total financing needed = startup costs + ongoing working capital costs (until break-even is reached)

Develop a detailed business plan

It is important to develop a business plan that completely explains to potential financiers of your venture and what it will take to start and reach break-even point and why you need that amount of money. Write this business plan and review it thoroughly till you cover all aspects of the business.

It is important to spend as much time as possible developing a solid business plan (that includes a financing plan), so that when you approach the financiers you have a very good idea of how the business will unfold (from startup to ongoing operations to closing down the business – every detail).

Financiers for your business

For most startups, the first capital will come in from the owner’s personal capital (it is important to have your own capital before others will consider contributing to it), followed possibly by family and friends who believe and trust in your abilities and then by institutional lenders like banks.

Friends and family will invest in your business for any number of reasons, and your financing plan should show what you can offer in return.

Banks will look at the ability of the borrower to service the loans, i.e. can you pay the monthly interest due for the amount being loaned. They will look at what is known as your ability to service your debt on an ongoing basis. Other things banks will also look for is collateral (a surety) for the amount loaned, in case you default in your loan payments. Banks also might look at financing the “leasehold improvements” i.e. the tangible stuff.

Government loans (small business loans) are also available through banks to encourage small business startups. These loans are variously called “Small Business Administration”, “Small Business Financing Program”, etc. Make sure to inquire with the bank you bank with to determine eligibility criteria and the terms of the loans.

Ultimately your business can be as big as the amount of financing you can get. So ensure that your business plan scales to the amount being loaned to you.

Special case: Vendor Financing

When you are buying an existing business, the financing needs are more geared towards paying the vendor (afterall the business is already running). In some cases the vendor may finance a part of the purchase amount, i.e. they let you own the business for an agreed down payment, and the rest of the purchase price is financed through some mutually agreeable interest rate and period.

7 Precautions To Exercise When Using Seller Financing

There are thousands of real estate transactions – residential and commercial – that occur each year which do not involve a traditional residential or commercial mortgage from a bank. Most often it is because a buyer does not qualify for a traditional bank loan, the property does not meet banking standards, or because either the seller or the buyer needs some financial or time accommodation that traditional banks can’t, or won’t make.

The most common form of non-traditional financing is simply seller financing, which is when the seller of real estate agrees to take a defined amount of payments over a predetermined time, before they deed the property over to the buyer. These arrangements while useful, usually put the buyer at a disadvantage.

Many a buyer has come to me in their moment of crisis, disappointed and surprised to learn that the property they had been making payments on is now in legal or financial jeopardy because of something the seller did, or didn’t do. The buyer, having invested substantial monies into a property, stands to lose it all unless they bring legal action, or reach deep into their pockets to cure the seller’s problem, now their problem.

This scenario occurs more often than not and buyers who have been through it know the emotional and financial toll it takes to rescue a property and one’s investment when a seller’s ability to provide clear title is severely impaired.

Here are 7 precautions that a buyer should take when purchasing a property using seller financing.

1. Have a written sales agreement. All real estate transactions must be in the form of a written agreement signed by both parties for it to be enforceable in a court of law. Even an agreement written on a crumpled napkin bearing the signatures of both seller and buyer has been upheld as a contract in court. Without a written agreement, neither party has guidelines as how to govern their relationship with respect to the property and with respect to themselves. Those who proceed without a written agreement deserve the legal and financial heart ache they may encounter in the future to unravel the meaning behind what was verbally stated and agreed upon in the past.

2. Pull title. Make sure that the person(s) that shows up on title are the sellers. If there are others appearing as owners, it’s not okay to just to accept an explanation from the seller. Once verified, get the proper parties and supporting legal documentation that as the buyer, you are purchasing from the correct parties in title.

All owners showing on title must be the same as those who appear as sellers in the agreement. Recently, I had a client who had purchased a property owned by two brothers. Unfortunately, one brother was incarcerated in another state. The client was ready to pay off the balance of the purchase price, but the incarcerated brother who had never signed the purchase agreement as was not willing to sell his interest in the property. The selling brother was stuck, and the buyer was irate. The matter was resolved, but not right away. Never accept anything less than having all owners of a property sign at the time of the sales agreement; not a minute after.

3. Trust but verify. If the title work contains language that reports “certificate of redemption” or something similar, it means that sometime in the past the property was either in tax or mortgage foreclosure and that the seller was late and in default with tax or mortgage payments. The redemption certificate means that the seller ultimately paid on their obligation;Regardless, the seller has a history of placing their property in jeopardy. It is imperative that buyers verify that the seller is not only current on their mortgage or tax obligation, but that they remain so, otherwise the buyer’s own investment in the property could be lost because of an irresponsible seller.

Unless the sales agreement states otherwise, the buyer should require that the seller provide written confirmation in the form of a paid receipt, that the taxes are paid current, within 30 days from the date taxes were due. As for underlying mortgage payments, the seller should provide proof that they are current with their mortgage payment by delivering to the buyer the mortgage statement every 90 days.

4. Better they should “cry” than you should “cry”.

a. Property condition. Often sellers offering “seller financing” work under the impression that if a buyer needs financing, then the seller can either cut corners with regards to real estate documentation, including disclosures, or that they can pressure the buyer into taking a substandard property at a higher price. Unless the buyer is getting a good price on substandard property there is never a reason for the buyer to feel compelled to take on a problem property. The seller should always provide a disclosure of the condition of the property, or allow the buyer a reasonable time to secure a property inspection.

b. Ask for provisions. Even when a seller offers financing, sales contracts still need to be negotiated. Buyers shouldn’t be shy about asking for terms that they feel comfortable with, such as verifying the seller’s timely payments I once had a client who for many years had paid a seller their monthly payments, only to find later that the owner was not making the underlying mortgage payment and that the home was in foreclosure. Requesting reasonable verification provisions is not only necessary, but expected. Don’t let anyone: the seller, the seller’s real estate agent, or even the buyer’s agent, tell you otherwise. I’m a firm believer that is better for the seller to “cry” now than for the buyer to “cry” at a later date.

5. Buyers need to review the provisions of the seller’s mortgage. Many mortgages have provisions that require when a property is sold, the balance of a loan becomes due. This is known as a “due on sale” clause. The bank or lender may not learn of the transaction right away, but imagine the buyer’s surprise when three years into performing under the sales contract, the bank calls the mortgage due and neither the buyer nor the seller is prepared with enough money to pay the bank off?

6. Preclude the seller from further encumbering the property. A seller who has a small lien on the property, or even no lien, may crow that the property is free and clear. What prevents this seller from mortgaging the property at a later date, for an amount that exceeds the purchase price agreed upon by the buyer and seller. A provision within the sales agreement can prevent the seller from mortgaging the property altogether, or set limits as to how much a seller’s new underlying mortgage could be.

7. Use an escrow.

a. Deed in escrow. At the time of consummating the sale, the seller should be required to place the deed in escrow with the closing title company or third party escrow agent. The escrow will have specific instructions as to when this deed will be released to the buyer. This protects the buyer in the event of a seller’s death, or from the seller wrongfully withholding a deed from a buyer who has faithfully upheld the terms of their agreement.

b. Payments to a third party. Buyers should arrange for their monthly payments to be deposited directly into a seller’s designated bank account. This ensures that all record keeping and accounting will remain accurate because the buyer has third party confirmation of seller’s receipt of good funds.

Conclusion. Seller financing is but one of many creative way for buyers to purchase a property, and seller’s to liquidate a property. Agreements that govern the parties relations to the property and to each other, should be reviewed by competent real estate counsel. Sure there are “boiler plate” forms that the parties can be use. “Yes” some experienced real estate agent have opinions; Still they cannot be legally relied upon. Seek proper counsel. As the old adage goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Construction Finance and the Problem With Banks

High street banks are often the benchmark for clients looking to borrow money. This is true of personal mortgages, loans and no less so for funding building projects. Most would agree that they provide the cheapest rates and all builders and developers are looking for the cheapest construction finance.

The problem is that for most clients the high street are simply not an option at the moment, and from news I have had, nor will they be for the foreseeable future. I have dealt with clients who should be able to obtain bank funding, having clean credit, a good track record and years of experience in the sector. They are still being declined for various reasons, such as the loan amount is too low, the type of build is not what the bank wants, they have other loans that would need to be repaid first – the list goes on.

However, just because your current bank will not give you construction finance does not mean that there are no options available to you. It does mean though that you should not judge quotes we, or others give you, on the basis that the rate of interest or fees might be more than you are used to or were expecting.

Off high street lenders are NEVER going to offer building finance as cheap as the big banks. They are specialists filling a gap in the market, and to be frank, they know that your options are limited. Lenders such as this are mostly funded by investors who want to see a return on their money and the lender themselves need to charge a margin to stay in business. The market has set the rates that others are prepared to pay and so you have a stark choice – pay the higher rates or do not borrow the money. For those that are cash rich there is no issue but for the majority that want to leverage their capital it is the difference between building or not building.

Of course, paying more for the construction finance means less profit for you, the developer, but it does mean you are making more profit than not doing any work at all. If you cannot get a project funded at a high street rate then the rates you have in mind or might want to pay are not applicable for comparison. A bank may have given you funds at 1.5% above base in the past but that is irrelevant now. The past is not today.

The fact that building finance is available is good news but now is as crucial a time as ever to use a broker with experience and knowledge of the market. Making the wrong choice could cost you thousands in unnecessary fees and interest.

Going through the internet looking for lenders directly is possible, of course. But how long will that take you? Hours or days? How do you know they will be the best fit for your project? Will they give you all the information you need day 1?

Working with an experienced broker can make the process much easier as they will have a real understanding of how each lender works, the process they go through and what costs you can expect, before you get too far into an application.

So, construction finance is out there but for your own sanity don’t automatically compare it to what you are used to and what you think should be available.

They are often hung on walls, or shown off where they can be seen. Of course, medals need to be personalized, unique, and specific. You cannot award a running champion with a medal that doesn’t recognize what it’s for. It is often a perfect idea to find a company that will provide you with customized prizes for winners. Often, you can ask for customized medals that include the date, the name of the race, and the name of the company sponsoring and orchestrating the event. That way, when people proudly show their winning medal to others, the people who made the event happen will receive the credit and publicity they deserve.

In addition to medals, running apparel and gear can be a great way to make the race more memorable. Unlike medals, gear is commonly worn and would be used often. Passing out swag, such as customized shirts, jackets, hats, and bags can be a great way to add to the excitement of the race. Races with their own gear are viewed as more unique, as they have customized logos and attractive designs. Shirts can be given out to families, and jackets can be sold at the finish line. Hats can be passed out before the race to keep the sun out of the athlete’s eyes. And, of course, bags can be kept forever and used for multiple occasions. Having the name and date of your race on these items can help to increase publicity and help the runners remember what a successful and memorable race it was. Customizing these mementos can help to define a great race, and will definitely help a race to be more exciting and enjoyable.

Types of Wood Siding Available for Homeowners

When building your home, even the smallest decision could make a world of difference in what it ultimately looks like. This is also true when undertaking an exterior redesign project. Siding, among other key characteristics, is one of those big decisions that could entirely alter your home’s exterior appeal based on your decision.
Although plastic siding has become a popular option in recent years due to pricing, traditional wood siding remains the preference for many homeowners. This is because wood siding offers customers numerous benefits over their plastic counterparts. Benefits include:

• Wood siding is eco-friendlier than plastic

• Wood is more aesthetically appealing

• Many types of wood are naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and rot, which allows the home owner less maintenance

• Wood lasts longer

• …And much more

One of the main benefits is that wood naturally takes to paint, stains, and other decorative options incredibly well. Plastic, on the other hand, often must be crafted in the customer’s color choice – meaning that options are limited. Once decided upon a type of wood siding, however, you can then choose any type of finish. Whether you want to paint your home the colors of the rainbow, or opt for a natural dark wood stain, anything is possible. Below we look at four of the most commonly used types of siding available: board and batten siding, bevel, tongue and groove, and lap siding. Each has their own aesthetic appeal so that there is something for every person’s unique tastes.

Board and Batten Siding

Board and batten siding is a vertical design created by using two different sized boards. The wider boards are set beneath, while the narrower boards are placed atop the joins. These narrower boards are called ‘battens.’ There are no set widths, so homeowners can choose their preference. The most commonly used measurements, however, are 1 inch by 3 inch battens placed over 1 inch by 10 inch boards.

Bevel Siding

Bevel siding is the most commonly used siding. Installed horizontally, boards are cut at an angle so that one side is thicker than the others. This creates a shingle effect, or the appearance that the boards are overlapping one another. Tongue and Groove Siding Tongue and groove siding is incredibly versatile. Available in both rough and smooth board finishes, it is fitted together tightly to give a sleek appearance. It can be installed in any direction, which does not only include horizontal and vertical, but also diagonal.

Lap Siding

Lap Siding is also known as Channel siding. This siding is very versatile, with installation capabilities for any direction (like the above tongue and groove siding). This unique siding features boards which partially overlap one another, and the ultimate results are a rustic appearance like those of a hunting cabin. If you’re interested in learning even more about wood siding -including less commonly used types available – you can contact your local siding specialist or construction expert. They will be able to give you more detailed information, including a price estimate for your area.
