  • 00:34:23 – Question 1 – I am purchasing a practice within the next couple of months. I have an opportunity to buy real estate as well. I am concerned that I might not qualify for the loan for the practice as well as for the building. Any suggestions?
  • 00:38:44 – Question 2 – My office is currently a leased space that is part of a strip mall. I am paying a premium for the space because of traffic count. Would it be better for me to purchase my real estate elsewhere? 
  • 00:40:26 – I currently have a great location that I own. I have the opportunity to expand by purchasing the space immediately adjacent to mine. At this point it seems like it is more space than I would ever need. Your thoughts?

  • 00:46:32 – Question 4 – I am a senior dentist who will be selling my practice later this year. I also own my building. Would it be wise to sell the building to the practice purchaser or would it be better to keep the building?
