Uniquely Beneficial Financing Terms

Making practices stronger through innovative financing structures and better-than-market terms.


Uniquely Beneficial Financing Terms

Is your bank struggling to understand and fulfill the needs of the group?

Owner-occupied medical real estate offers a unique and unparalleled credit profile for lenders. Therefore, the financing terms and conditions that banks offer should be reflective of the unique structures groups need to be most effective. Allowing income to be fully distributed, not requiring personal guarantees, and easily accommodating ownership changes are just a few ways that banks can provide the flexibility that is not afforded to other asset classes.

CMAC has customized financing solutions at its core. Through listening to our clients and working with lenders to create innovative financing structures we have assisted in defining the lending parameters of the industry. CMAC has created a globalized and data driven marketplace for its independent medical borrowers and achieves financing that complements the needs of the real estate AND the practice.


“Aside from the outstanding professionalism and diligence displayed by CMAC throughout our effort to consider various refinancing options, perhaps the most impressive feature was their ability to tap not only local but some predominantly out-of-area lenders which led to a more spirited and aggressive competition to secure our business.”
Steve Blake, CEO - Central Park ENT, Arlington, TX
