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 the glut of commercial mortgage money flooding the market. We also have lots of cute, clean jokes, some funny pics, and a funny Robin Williams video.
Joke Du Jour
A man told the ringmaster that he was interested in joining the circus as a lion tamer. The ringmaster asked if he had any experience and the man said, "Why, yes. My father was one of the most famous lion tamers in the world, and he taught me everything he knew." "Really?" said the ringmaster. "Did he teach you how to make a lion jump through a flaming hoop?" "Yes he did," the man replied. "And did he teach you how to have six lions form a pyramid?" "Yes he did," the man replied. "And have you ever stuck your head in a lion's mouth?" "Just once," the man replied. The ringmaster asked, "Why only once?" The man said, "I was looking for my father."

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.
Boss, I Can't Come In To Work Today
If it is all the same to you, I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all my guns today.
I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. Okay?
I have a rare case of 48-hour projectile leprosy, but I know we have that deadline to meet...
The Market is Flooded With Commercial Mortgage Money
I have been in commercial real estate finance for almost 40 years, and I have never seen soooo much money chasing so few commercial loans. Commercial lenders are cutting each other's throats to do deals. Every lender I know, including Blackburne & Sons, has vast hordes of money sitting uninvested.
And here is the eerie part: I don't see this situation changing for a decade. In terms of interest rates, it's a race to the bottom.
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.
I handed the teller at my bank a withdrawal slip for $400. I said, "I'd like large bills, please." She looked at me and said, "I'm sorry sir, all the bills are the same size."

Tough School Joke
"I won't say our school was tough, but we had our own coroner. We used to write essays like, 'What I'm going to be if I grow up.'" -- Lenny Bruce

On a Personal Note
The movie remake of Stephen King's classic novel IT is now out in theaters. I am so excited to see this movie because the original gave me nightmares as a kid. I think it is responsible for giving half of America a fear of clowns! Last week I rewatched the original for the first time in over a decade, and it is a must see if you are into scary movies. That being said, the trailers for the remake look significantly more terrifying. My heart is beating just thinking about It!

Two golfing friends were about to tee off when one fellow noticed that his partner had but one golf ball. "Don't you have at least one other ball?" he asked. "Nope, I only need one ball." "Are you sure? What happens if you lose that one?" "This is a very special golf ball. You can't lose it, so I don't need another one." "What do you mean you can't lose it! What happens if you slice your shot and the ball goes in the lake?" "That's okay, this special golf ball senses when it's under water and it puts out a steam of bubbles. I'll be able to retrieve it. You can't lose this ball." "Well what happens if you hit it into the long rough?" "No problem. You see, this ball can detect the long grass and it sends up puffs of fluorescent smoke. I'll be able to see it easily. You can't lose this ball." Exasperated, the friend asks, "Okay. Let's say our game goes late, the sun goes down, you hit your ball deep into the trees and it gets lost among the bushes and shrubs? What are you going to do then?" "That's okay too. You see, this special ball can sense the darkness and it makes a beeping sound. I'll be able to get it back - no problem." Finally satisfied that he needs only the one amazing golf ball, the friend asks, "Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that anyway?" "I found it."
