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 a special way to buy commercial property by blanketing other property. We also have lots of cute, clean jokes, some funny pics, and a collection of trending videos.
Joke Du Jour
One Sunday morning, Steve burst into the living room and said, "Dad! Mom! I have some great news for you! I am getting married to the most beautiful girl in town. She lives a block away and her name is Susan. After dinner, Steve's dad took him aside, "Son, I have to talk with you. Look at your mother, Steve. She and I have been married 30 years, she's a wonderful wife and mother, but, she has never offered much excitement in the bedroom, so I used to fool around with women a lot." "Susan is actually your half sister, and I'm afraid you can't marry her."
Steve was brokenhearted. After eight months, he eventually started dating girls again. A year later he came home and very proudly announced, "Diane said yes! We're getting married in June." Again his father insisted on another private conversation and broke the sad news. "Diane is your half sister too, Steve. "I'm awfully sorry about this." Steve was livid! He finally decided to go to his mother with the news his father had shared. "Dad has done so much harm. I guess I'm never going to get married," he complained. "Every time I fall in love, Dad tells me the girl is my half sister."
"Hee hee," his mother chuckled, shaking her head, "Don't pay any attention to what he says. He's not really your father."
Let the Joust Begin
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? Blackburne & Sons has decided to compete with banks by offering a higher 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.
Blackburne & Sons is looking for commercial real estate loans that are not quite clean enough for a bank. Please click here to submit a hard money commercial loan or call me, Tom Blackburne, at (574) 210-6686.

Buy Commercial Property By Blanketing Other Property
One of my loan officers brought me a deal this week in which a land owner wanted to buy a piece of land next door to his company's building. He had no cash to put down, but he owned his current building free and clear. I said, "Absolutely! Just blanket both properties. Easy-peasey."
Be sure to remember this trick. The additional collateral could have been a commercial building, a house, or even land.

Rental Car Joke
A couple of rednecks went on vacation in Colorado. They flew to Denver and rented a car to sight see. One of the sights was a bridge that was more than 1,000 feet above the river. Walking out onto the bridge, they noticed it swaying in the wind. "I don't think I want to drive the car across this bridge," one said to the other. "What are you worried about"? the second replied. "It's a rental."

On a Personal Note
If you have been following my emails, you will recall that I got a Golden Retriever puppy a few months back. At the time I got him, he was a cute fluff ball that could do no wrong. We named him Bernard. Now, five months later, I realize we should have named him Destroyer. He is the destroyer of all things nice and clean in my house. Nothing at his eye level can be left alone. From the couch pillows, to the garden decorations and flowers, to the chicken coop - Bernie has to put his mouth on everything. And I am not sure if I can describe him as a "Golden Retriever." He refuses to retrieve anything we throw and he usually sports more of a mud brown color, with just a splash of reddish-gold. Nothing excites him more than the fresh mud after a violent rainstorm. This pup will bring me to an early grave, but it is totally worth it. I love my Bernie-Monster to death, so please send me more leads so that I can afford to get him a little brother!

Final Funny (R)
A hillbilly was making his first visit to a hospital where his teenage son was about to have an operation. Watching the doctor's every move, he asked, "What's that?" The doctor explained, "This is an anesthetic. After he gets this he won't know a thing." "Save your time, Doc," exclaimed the man. "He don't know nothing now."
