Meet EPR Properties: Your Proven Partner in Facilities Financing
As another semester winds down and students start to plan their summer vacations, it’s a great time to think about what changes the new school year will bring. Are you looking to finance a new charter school? Is your school looking to expand? Would freeing up your cash flow allow you to hire more teachers and accommodate more students? Partnering with EPR Properties could help you figure out your school’s next step.
At EPR Properties, we understand that safe, attractive, purpose-built facilities are vital to the success of a school. That is why we offer tailored financing solutions to meet the unique needs of charter schools. Our partnership frees operators from the burden of real estate, allowing them to focus on delivering quality education. As a result, schools gain a competitive advantage as they grow and expand.
We work with charter schools in two main capacities: acquisitions and development projects. Here’s a look at how that works.
EPR works with operators to purchase their existing properties from either third-party owners or the operators themselves. This allows the school to reinvest capital at the school level or utilize funds to replicate in new locations.
- Gain immediate access to capital
- Remove your largest liability from the balance sheet
- Maintain control of school operations and associated facilities
In the case of new construction, EPR provides 100% financing for land acquisition, construction costs and third-party fees. We also provide complete financing for renovations and expansions. Once the project is complete, you will be able to operate your school in a new purpose-built facility and we’ll continue to be your long-term partner throughout the process.
- Financing for new schools in early stages
- Input in site selection and project design
- Freedom from the hassles and fees of bond or bank financing
- Option to expand facilities or replicate existing schools
If these options sound like something you would be interested in, I’d love to discuss how an EPR partnership could take your school to the next level. Reach out to get started today.
