COMMERCIAL LENDING NEWSLETTER
You are receiving this letter because you are one of my Spartans - my top-producing brokers and investor clients - of whom I am allowed to have 300. Removal instructions are below. Today we'll talk about exit fees. We also have lots of cute, clean jokes, some funny pics, and a super interesting video.
Joke Du Jour
After ten years, the wife starts to think their child looks a little odd, so she decides to do a DNA test. She finds out that the kid is actually from completely different parents. Wife: “Honey, I have something very serious to tell you.” Husband: “What's up?” Wife: “According to DNA test results, this is not our kid.” Husband: “Well, don't you remember? When we were leaving the hospital, you saw the baby had pooped his diaper. Then you said, ‘Please go change the baby, I'll wait for you here.’ So I went inside, got a clean one, and left the messy one there.”
Private Money Commercial Permanent Loans Nationwide From $100,000 to $3.5MM
Do you need a commercial lender who will actually lend up to 75% LTV?
Do you need a lender who will also look at the borrower's global income - income from salaries, other investments, etc.? Do you need a lender who will allow the seller to carry back a second mortgage? Does your client have a balloon payment coming due on his commercial property? Has your bank offered him a discounted pay-off? Does your borrower have less-than-stellar credit? Is your client's company losing money? Is your borrower a foreign national? Do you need a non-recourse loan? Do you need a commercial loan with no prepayment penalty? Is your client's commercial property partially vacant? Do all of your commercial leases run out in the next 18 months? Do you need a lender who will allow a negative cash flow? Do you need a loan against a portfolio of rental houses?
And don't forget, we will quickly and happily issue you a written Loan Approval Letter - at no charge - that you can use as a fallback and to lure cheaper lenders. After all, everyone wants to lend to you if you already have a commitment. Here is our latest rate sheet.

What is an Exit Fee?
An exit fee is like a prepayment penalty, except the fee is owed when the loan pays off, regardless of whether the loan is paid off early, exactly on time, or late.
I was reading a tombstone this week issued by George Smith Partners describing a $7.4MM bridge loan that they had recently closed. What was interesting about this loan was that they had structured the deal with an increasing exit fee. I had never heard of an increasing exit fee before.
"The loan is structured with an increasing exit fee in lieu of an upfront lender origination fee to minimize upfront costs and incentivize the Borrower to execute the business plan in a timely manner... After an initial 12 month spread maintenance period, the exit fee is 1.33% for months 13 through 24, increasing to 1.66% for months 25 through 30 and 2.00% for months 31 through 36."

On a Personal Note
My 7-month-old golden retriever puppy named Bernie is a handful. He is very much the rough and tumble outdoorsy dog that he was bred to be. And to no one's surprise, he went head first into a swamp for a swim on our last hiking excursion two weeks ago. I didn't think anything of it until the next morning when one of his eyes became swollen, pink, and seeping ooze overnight. Two days later, Bernie had become completely blind in both eyes! In panic mode, we rushed him to a 24 hour vet clinic. After paying oodles of money on blood work, urine analysis, lung fluid analysis, and seeing an ophthalmologist, they were not able to determine what caused his blindness. The next day Bernie was given a series of anti-fungal, anti-viral, and steroid medications to go home with, based on the assumption that this was either a tick-borne illness or fungal/bacterial from the swamp. It just didn't make sense for this to be hereditary or cancerous, given his age. Two weeks later, we still aren't exactly sure what caused the sudden blindness, but I am so thankful to say Bernie has regained much of his eyesight back! The medication is working. :)
I say all that to say this: This past winter here in the Midwest was incredibly mild, which has caused a spike in numerous forest dwelling, infectious critters and contagions such as ticks (Lyme disease is at an all time high), mosquitoes, poison ivy, and stagnant water-based bacteria and fungi, of course. Be extra careful this summer and fall when venturing into the woods, and remember to keep your pups out of the swamps!

Final Funny (R)
A girl from New York and a girl from the west coast were seated side by side on an airplane. The girl from New York, being friendly and all said, "So, where ya from?" The west coast girl said, "From a place where they know better than to use a preposition at the end of a sentence." The girl from New York sat quietly for a few moments and then replied: "So, where ya from.... (w)itch?"
