Default I got yurt financing from a bank!

Excited to announce that I was actually successful in getting a bank to finance my yurt! Seeing the requests that were constantly coming in with questions about financing,

Shelter Designs

Yurts worked with me and the banks to create a 'Yurt Loan pilot program.'

My wife and I were the guinea pigs for the bank and we all worked together over the last year to make this work. Essentially it works similar to a mobile home loan. The banks were able to offer a 10 year fixed with zero down @6% for the whole cost. After seeing the crazy interest rate on peer to peer lending sites this was a great offer.

The bank was awesome and excited to help the local yurt company offer this to clients. Although we were cleared, they want to run a few diagnostics on the loan to see if there is a more efficient way to streamline the process for future yurt loans. They hope to be able to offer this to the public soon! Once I get the green light from the bank that they have a good system in place I will happily share their info to other prospective yurt buyers!

This is super exciting as I know a lot of yurt dreamers like us have been held up due to no financing options. Will keep you all posted as things progress!

, admittedly I had a hard time letting go of that check after the year of working to get it! Cheers yurt dreamers!

Good luck. I think as long as the banks stick with reputable manufacturers like SD, they should not have many issues.

Griztopher, I would love to have a chat with you about your experience having a Yurt financed. Our company is asked very often if we can offer financing on our Yurt Cabins and I would like to have a suitable avenue for customers to pursue if they aim to finance their purchase. If you can call me at 303-344-0499 or email me at [email protected], I'd really appreciate it.

Regards,

Josh Barry

Can you chat with me a little about your loan? I'm very interested in trying to finance one.

Ok, this is AMAZING. Congrats, btw. My partner and I are just entering the peer to peer lending realm. Can you please keep me in the loop on this? Not a bad interest rate, either!

Peace,

Kelsey

Are there any updates on this possibility? OP was about a year ago.

I'll second or third this... Any updates on this? What bank? residency requirements? Past the pilot stage yet?

I've contacted SD too, and no word back from them yet.

Hope the yurt is treating you well.

regards,

Travis
