Financing FedEx Routes for Sale: How to Minimize Your Down Payment

The standard minimum down payment for a conventional bank loan is 25%. For an average priced route ($850,000), you would need a down payment around $212,500. This is a hefty amount of cash on hand. Plus, we recommend holding back approximately $50,000 of additional liquid funds as working capital.

If you are wondering about options to minimize or reduce your down payment requirements, you’re not alone.
