McDonald & Associates assists school districts with lease-purchase financing for buildings, computers, buses, furniture and equipment, roofs, portable buildings and energy and management control systems, to name just a few. McDonald & Associates does not act as lessor with respect to the leased property nor does the firm deal exclusively with one leasing company. Rather, McDonald & Associates serves as independent financial advisor to our school district clients, looking out for their best interest.
In our capacity as financial advisor, we typically bid out the financing of leased property, making sure that local banking institutions have the opportunity to submit a financing proposal. Every lease agreement arranged by McDonald & Associates provides for annual affirmative renewal of the lease as required by law and contains terms which meet the requirements of legal counsel.
Our experience and the experience of our clients is that our financial advisory services provides significant added value resulting in better financing terms and lower financing costs than are provided through the leasing companies that simply act as brokers.
