$1,800,000 Pari Passu

$4,400,000 SBA 7(a)

Limited Service Hotel

Trevose, Pennsylvania

Knights Inn

Executive Summary

A borrower came to Ready Capital with a dream: He’d been a part-time worker at a hotel in Trevose, Pennsylvania in his youth, but he had his sights set on becoming a hotel owner. Now a successful business owner with one hotel already in his commercial real estate portfolio, he wanted to purchase the hotel he’d once worked at.

But SBA lending alone came up short:

  • The borrower needed $6 million but was able to get only $4.4 million from an SBA 7(a) loan.
  • Pari Passu could be an excellent solution, but many lenders (particularly traditional banks) don’t offer it.

Having already worked with Ready Capital, the borrower didn’t hesitate to reach out to us. Among other aspects, we considered the borrower’s extensive knowledge of the market areas and the subject property itself.


Creative Solution

As a non-bank lender, Ready Capital stepped up with a Pari Passu loan to fill the financing gap.

Reliable Results

  • The $1.8 million Pari Passu loan, paired with the buyer’s SBA 7(a) loan, brought a total of $6.2 million for the $10 million acquisition.
  • Enabled the former part-time worker to become the owner of the 111-room franchised hotel business.
  • The financing covered closing costs and SBA fee.

“2023 Growth in both occupancy and ADR [average daily rate] is expected, with a year-over-year rebound in RevPAR [revenue per available room] of 6.6% — approximately 114% of pre-pandemic levels.”
