Tebow is back...time to start blogging?

First blog post...looking for financing answers in St. Augustine, for Vacation rental property.  


Ok, so this has nothing to do with Tim Tebow, but since it is my first Activerain blog post, I figired I would start with a Hail Mary pass.


"Condotel" financing.  


Is there anyone out there who has a source for financing for condo-hotels, with nightly rentals, on-site rental office (not a third party renting the space), and less than 600sf units.

There is, in my situation in St. Augustine, a complex that has incredible vacation rental opportunities, with direct ocean views, and only steps from the beach.  The investment potential on these units is awesome, but we are in a cash-only purchase situation.

We do an excellent job marketing and selling these units when they become available, but with financing, the sky is the limit.  Any suggestions?



(Back to Tim tebow...I wish him all the best!  He got a bum deal in Denver and New york.)

One of the things I've learned here in the Rain is the importance of a great headline.  Good luck finding financing.

What a great title for your first blog - guaranteed to attract readers! I think your best chance for condo-tels is private financing. Banks are very reluctant. The Laterra condo at World Golf Village actually had its governance changed to make it easier to get financing. You might want to suggest the developer pursue that route. Welcome to ActiveRain!
