Real Estate Financing

"Mr. Smith acquired a property consisting of one acre of land and a two-story building five years ago for $100,000. He also obtained an $80,000 mortgage loan from ACE Bank to provide financing to complete the purchase. This year, Mr. Smith constructed another building on the property with his own funds at a cost of $20,000. Mr. Smith has decided after completing the building to approach Duce Bank to borrow and mortgage the new building with a $16,000 loan. Is Duce Bank likely to provide the $16,000 in financing? What other options may Mr. Smith have to consider?"
