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 I'll teach you how to meet bankers - the single best source of commercial mortgage referrals. We also have lots of cute, clean jokes, some funny pics, and a video of some locals catching fish in a bone dry desert.

Joke Du Jour

Once upon a time, there was a snail who was sick and tired of his reputation for being so slow. He decided to get some fast wheels to make up the difference. After shopping around a while, he decided that the Datson 240-Z (a super-hot car back in the day) was the car to get.

The snail goes to the nearest Datsun dealer and says he wants to buy the 240-Z, but he wants it repainted '240-S'. The dealer asks, "Why 'S'?" The snail replies, "'S' stands for snail. I want everybody who sees me roaring past to know who's driving." Well, the dealer doesn't want to lose the unique opportunity to sell a car to a snail, so he agrees to have the car re- painted for a small fee.

The snail gets his new car and spent the rest of his days roaring happily down the highway at top speed. And whenever anyone would see him zooming by, they'd say, "Wow! Look at that S-car go!"

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 against 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.

Scale Joke

"Darn!" the man said to his friend while weighing himself at the local drug store scale. "I started on a new diet, but the scale says I'm heavier than I was before." Turning to his friend, he said, "Here, hold my jacket." The scale still indicated that he had not lost any weight. "OK," he said to his friend. "Hold my Twinkies."

How To Meet Bankers

The first lender that most borrowers call when seeking a new commercial loan is their own bank. As a result, the typical bank loan officer gets billions and billions of commercial loan requests.

The good news is that most commercial real estate loan officers at banks are sleepy, 55-year-old guys on straight salary. Few of them could give a flying fig if they ever closed another commercial loan. These guys therefore turn down billions and billions of commercial loans every month. You want their commercial loan turndowns!

I just wrote a great blog article about how to meet bankers, but I accidentally posted it to the wrong blog. (I have two blogs). If you enjoy the above blog article, and you want to read future training articles, please do NOT subscribe to my blog on that page. Instead, please sign up to receive free training in commercial real estate finance here.

Guys, here is a quick intelligence test: The single best source for commercial mortgage referrals is bankers, so you should be calling two or three bankers every day anyway. You can trade just one banker for a list of 750 bankers (1 for 750?) or for a free commercial mortgage marketing course.

Free Copy of The Blackburne List

The Blackburne List is a list of over 2,500 commercial lenders located nationwide. We just spent almost $30,000 and three months updating this list.

The Blackburne List is available for purchase for just $79.95. Is money tight? You can also buy one of our three Regional Lists (750+ lenders) for just $39.95. But why spend money at all?

We will trade you one of our three Regional Lists for the contact information of just one banker making commercial real estate loans. If you refer us three bankers, you will own the list for all three regions. Together you will own the entire Blackburne List.

There is another way that you can access The Blackburne List. Our newest portal, CommercialMortgage.com, is an online way to search the entire Blackburne List for the 30 lenders most suitable to make your loan. CommercialMortgage.com ("CMDC") is also 100% free!

Did you buy a copy of the full list last year? Please write to Tom Blackburne. For $39.95 more, we'll let you buy the brand new version of The Blackburne List.

Operation Joke

I hate the idea of going under the knife. So I was very upset when the doctor told me I needed a tonsillectomy. Later, the nurse and I were filling out an admission form. I tried to respond to the questions, but I was so nervous I couldn't speak.

The nurse patted my hand and said, "Don't worry. This medical problem can easily be fixed, and it's not a dangerous procedure." "You're right. I'm being silly," I said. "Please continue." "Good," the nurse went on. "Now, do you have a living will?"

Want to get this $549 course for free? Get me all of the contact information - address, email, etc. - on ten bankers, and I will send you the course for free. Guys, the ONLY acceptable bankers are loan officers working for FDIC-insured commercial banks or credit unions. Got ten? Write to me personally, George Blackburne III (the old man and founder) for this special trade.

It's the Loan Servicing Income, Folks

The loan servicing portfolio for Blackburne & Sons just broke $53 million this quarter. Since our average loan servicing fee is two percent annually, that means we earn $1 million per year for servicing just 250 loans. How would you like to walk in the door on the first of each month knowing that you will earn at least $83,000? Find your own private mortgage investors.

Glasses Joke

I believe my daughter wants a pair of glasses. I don't know why she does. Perhaps glasses are now "cool" to have in school? Although she sees just fine, she still says she needs glasses.

I took her to the eye doctor just to check it out though. She was asked to read the bottom row of letters on the eye chart. She said, "All right, I can see the 'O' and the 'P' and the 'T,' but not the 'N' and the 'Z.'"

Gray Hair Joke

I was having trouble with the idea of turning 30 and was oversensitive to any signs of advancing age. When I found a prominent gray hair in my bangs, I pointed to my forehead. "Have you seen this?" I indignantly asked my husband. "What?" he asked. "The wrinkles?"

We're Now Making Business Purpose Rental Home Loans in Four States

On a Personal Note

This month marks the 1 year anniversary of when I purchased my first house.  It was a foreclosure, so I got a great deal on it - but the house needed a LOT of work.  I was never very familiar with handiwork growing up, so all of the repairs I've had to learn by word of mouth or Youtube, of course haha.  I am proud to say that by the end of October, my house will be completely remodeled...well, except for patching the garage...and painting the downstairs bathroom...and replacing the kitchen flooring.  Ok, by the end of the month I will be mostly* done with the remodeling - I hope!

Don't Forget About C-Loans.com

We have a whole new crop of hungry commercial lenders on C-Loans, so if you have a commercial loan you're trying to place, it takes just four minutes to submit your deal to 750 commercial lenders. And remember, C-Loans.com is free!

Final Funny (R)

Today marks the 35th anniversary of the death of Sir Douglas Bader, and I couldn't let it pass without this story about the Royal Air Force hero. He was giving a talk at an upmarket girls' school about his time as a pilot in the Second World War.

"So there were two of the f***ers behind me, three f***ers to my right, and another f***er on the left," he told the audience. The headmistress went pale and interjected, "Ladies, the Fokker was a German aircraft." Sir Douglas replied, "That is true, madam, but these f***ers were in Messerschmitts."
