Build-Outs | Renovations | Expansions

A workplace that has it all needs the financing to do it all.


First American can help you create an extraordinary workplace. We build custom financing solutions
to fit your needs, combining all costs into one straightforward lease. Our full-solution financing options for office renovations 
and expansions are tailored to meet your business objectives—from project simplification and budget consistency, to tax savings and accounting benefits.


Distribute Costs

Align the cost of the equipment with its use and evenly distribute buildout cost per year.

Why shoulder 100% of the costs today when the tax benefits will be realized over time? A lease can help balance your cash flow while minimizing your tax expenses. 

Finance 100% of Costs

First American can finance all collateral involved, including installation and construction costs.

A lease line of credit can include all expenses related to a build-out, including soft costs. Expenses such as architectural fees, construction, wiring and cabling, audio-visual setup and carpeting can all be included in a lease along with furniture and fixtures.

Improve Tax Efficiency

Expensing rental payments can create a greater tax shield than depreciation, resulting in a reduced tax burden.

Lease payments are recorded on your income statement, which means they are tax-deductible operating expenses.
