Joke Du Jour
A man was driving down the road and ran out of gas. Just at that moment, a bee flew in his window. The bee said, "What seems to be the problem?" "I'm out of gas," the man replied. The bee told the man to wait right there and flew away. Minutes later, the man watched as an entire swarm of bees flew to his car and into his gas tank. After a few minutes, the bees flew out. "Try it now," said one bee. The man turned the ignition key and the car started right up. "Wow,"' the man exclaimed, "what did you put in my gas tank?" The bee answered, "BP!"

Private Money Commercial Loans Nationwide From $100,000 to $3.5MM
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?
Our hot, new product is a blanket loan against a portfolio of rental homes. Rental homes? Yup, as long as there are at least five homes or units, we consider this to be a commercial loan. We even offer a partial release clause. This loan is ideal for speculators.
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.

Today's Lesson: Industrial Building Loan Leads Are Hot!
For the past five years, apartment loans have been a hot commodity. Millions of Americans lost their homes during the Great Recession, and the demand for rental housing soared.
Today the hot product commercial loan product is loans on modern industrial buildings. Now I am not talking about 50-year-old brick relics that have been vacant for decades. I am talking about modern, concrete buildings in major cities.
Why industrial? Why now? First of all, there was very little industrial building construction during the Great Recession. Secondly, manufacturers have soured on out-sourcing.
The quality of products constructed using foreign labor is often substandard. American workers are four times more productive. The Chinese steal our patents. Supply lines are too long. Short production runs are infeasible, and changes during assembly are virtually impossible. Outsourcing has not been the panacea everyone expected. As a result, industrial rents in major cities are climbing, and industrial space is filling.
If you need a non-prime or subprime commercial mortgage loan right now, simply complete this super-easy mini-app to me here at Blackburne & Sons.
If you need a bank-quality commercial loan right now from a life company, a commercial bank, or a conduit, you should enter your deal into C-Loans.com.
The teacher asked the kids in spelling class to tell what their father does for a living and then spell it. The first kid says, "My daddy's a baker. That's b-a-k-e-r. He makes bread and lots of sweet goodies to eat." The second kid says, "My daddy's a banker. That's b-a-n-k-e-r. He makes lots of money and buys us lots of toys." The next kid says, "My daddy's an electrician. That's e-l-a-k...uh, e-l-e-x...uh...." The teacher interrupts, saying, "That's okay, Raymond. Think about it, and we'll come back to you." Turning to Little Johnny, she says, "You're next, Johnny." Little Johnny says, "My daddy's a bookie. That's b-o-o-k-i-e, and I'll lay you odds ten-to-one Raymond don't ever spell electrician."

On a Personal Note
Yesterday, my daughter just had her 1st day of kindergarten. I had been preparing her for this day for several weeks. I made her say her teacher's name numerous times so she will never forget, we rehearsed how the 1st day will go, we discussed in detail what to do if she gets lost at school, and I even had my first serious talk about bullies. I can't believe she is already 5yrs old and going to school. Man, I am getting old.

Final Funny (R)
A young boy went up to his father and asked him, "Dad, what is the difference between 'potentially' and 'realistically?'" The father thought for a moment, then answered, "Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars, and then, ask your brother if he'd sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Come back and tell me what you learn from that." So the boy went to his mother and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?" The mother replied, "Of course, I would! We could really use that money to fix up the house and send you kids to a great university!" The boy then went to his sister and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?" The girl replied, "Oh, good heavens! I LOVE Brad Pitt, and I would sleep with him in a heartbeat. Are you nuts?" The boy then went to his brother and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?" "Of course," the brother replied. "Do you know how much a million bucks would buy?" The boy pondered the answers for a few days and then went back to his dad. His father asked him, "Did you find out the difference between 'potentially' and 'realistically?'" The boy replied, "Yes, 'potentially' you and I are sitting on three million dollars; but 'realistically," we're living with two hookers and a future congressman."
