Private Money Commercial Permanent Loans Nationwide From
$100,000 to $3.5MM
Do you need a purchase money lender who will actually go to 75% loan-to-value? Blackburne & Sons has decided to compete against banks by being far more aggressive on loan-to-value ratio. We are very bullish on commercial real estate.
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 lender who will also look at the borrower's global income - income from salaries, other investments, etc.? Do you need a loan against a portfolio of single family homes?
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 private money commercial loan or call me, Tom Blackburne, at (574) 210-6686.
American Dream Joke
"New research shows that China has a bigger middle class than America, and more people in China are living what we would call the 'American Dream.' That's when you know things are bad - when even the American DREAM is made in China." -- Jimmy Fallon
DIP financing is short for debtor-in-possession financing. When a borrower files a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the reorganization kind of bankruptcy, he retains title and possession of his assets. He is called a debtor-in-possession. The bankruptcy court stays (stops) any further collection action against him while he prepares a plan of reorganization that will repay his creditors in full.
While the debtor is in Chapter 11, it is possible to obtain, with the permission of the court, new financing that will be senior to all existing debt. The debtor must convince the court and a committee of his creditors that the cash infusion will allow him to repay his debts in full.
This type of bankruptcy financing is called DIP financing, and Blackburne & Sons makes DIP loans.
I just wrote a wonderful blog article that explains DIP financing using a real-life example. All of my 400 blog articles are free training lessons in commercial real estate finance. If you want to become a more successful broker, be sure to subscribe to my free blog.
Two overweight, middle-aged women are on their daily walk. They were discussing how hard it is to lose weight as one gets older. One woman complained that she remained apple-shaped. The other woman said that no matter how much she exercised, there was too much fat on her backside and thighs, and it seemed like it was there to stay. Her friend agreed, saying, "It's true. The lard works in mysterious ways."
Only Blackburne & Sons Can Do This:
Blackburne & Sons has some truly unique and super cool programs:
- We'll give you a bridge loan on your commercial property for only one point! There is no prepayment penalty.
- We allow sellers to carry back a second mortgage behind our first mortgage.
- We will actually lend up to a 75% loan-to-value ratio. Banks claim they will lend up to 75% LTV, but in real life they will only go 68% LTV.
- We offer private money (loosey-goosey underwriting) commercial loans with a 15-year term. Our competitors offer 2- to 3-year bridge loans. We offer 15-year permanent loans with no prepayment penalty. Never again will you have a balloon payment come due during a recession.
- We have a terrific apartment permanent program that can compete with agency loans.
- We buy commercial first mortgages (usually at a discount).
- Instead of discounting your wonderful commercial first mortgage, consider pledging it as collateral for a smaller loan. This is called a hypothecation. We make loans secured by mortgage notes owned by the borrower.
Snow White Joke
This mother tells the story: When my daughter was three, we watched Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs for the first time. The wicked queen appeared, disguised as an old lady selling apples, and my daughter was spellbound. Then Snow White took a bite of the poisoned apple and fell to the ground unconscious. As the apple rolled away, my daughter spoke up, "See, Mom, she doesn't like the skin either."

As My Cat Headed Out One Evening...
A 90-year-old man said to his doctor, "I've never felt better. I have an 18-year-old bride who is pregnant with my child. What do you think about that?"
The doctor considered his question for a minute and then said, "I have an elderly friend who is a hunter and never misses a season. One day when he was going out in a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his umbrella instead of his gun. When he got to the creek, he saw a beaver sitting beside the stream. He raised his umbrella and went, 'bang, bang', and the beaver fell dead. What do you think of that?"
The 90-year-old said, "I'd say somebody else shot that beaver." The doctor replied, "My point exactly."

Three Beers Joke
An Irishman walks into a pub and orders three beers. The bartender brings him the three beers, and the man proceeds to alternately sip one, then the other, then the third, until they're gone. When he orders three more, the bartender says, "Sir, don't you like your beer cold? Why don't you start with one, and I'll bring you a fresh one as soon as you're low."
The man says, "You don't understand. I have two brothers, one in Austria and one in America. We made a vow to each other when they moved away that every Saturday night, we'd still drink together. So right now, my brothers have three beers too, and we're drinking together."The bartender thinks it's a wonderful tradition, and every week he sets up the guy's three beers.
Then one week, the man comes in and orders only two. He drinks them and then orders two more. The bartender says sadly, "Knowing your tradition, I'd just like to say that I hope nothing has happened to one of your brothers." The man replies, "Oh, my brothers are fine -- I just quit drinking."

On a Personal Note
This past weekend I went on an adventurous trip with my girlfriend, Alex. Our trip started off with a two hour drive directly south to a historic town called French Lick, Indiana. There, we went on an informative train ride that took us deep through the forest. The train was so old that it even broke down for an hour before they were able to fix it! We then drove another two hours south to Evansville, IN - a town on the Ohio river. There we did a ghost tour (we didn't see "The Gray Lady") and stayed in a 200-year-old bed and breakfast. The morning after, we went on a boated cave tour, one hundred feet underground. The cave was incredibly eerie, dark, and cold. The water was crystal clear with a blueish tint, while the cave walls were littered with frogs and the occasional albino crayfish. We opted out of the last leg of the tour where you are to lie down in the boat and shimmy your way for about 20 feet before entering into the next stretch of cave routes. Apparently we are claustrophobic!

Final Funny (R)
An elderly couple was at home watching TV. Phil had the remote and was switching back and forth between a fishing channel and an adult entertainment channel. Mary became more and more annoyed and finally said, "For God's sake, Phil, leave it on the adult channel. You already know how to fish!"
