Today, I want to briefly discuss innovative solutions outside of the bankable box. Here at CRE Finance, we examine transactions on a case-by-case basis. Our financing technicians have years of experience that allow them to structure and customize financial solutions just for you. Today, I want to share 10 special situations we come across:

1. Complex company structures. As we all know in commercial real estate, company structures can be complex, from individual owners to family trusts and more, we are here to help get through those complex structures.
2. Businesses outside the United States. Cheaper wages and better tax structures have taken many businesses outside of the United States; whatever it might be, CRE Finance can make things happen regardless of where you're located.
3. Concentration risk and foreign customer risk. United States real estate is red hot, especially in big cities like Manhattan and San Francisco. There is a lot of foreign currency coming through the states, but a lot of companies can't lend in them. CRE Finance can.
4. Ratio of inventory to accounts receivable are upside down. All companies have different accounts receivable -- some are profitable, some are upside down, some are seasonal, and some are year long. CRE can audit your accounts receivable and tailor lending that will help your company.
5. Specialized enterprises and criticized industries. Restaurants and bars are industries that are harder to finance, have more liability, and are somewhat criticized in the press. That doesn't stop us -- give us a call and we'll tailor a loan to your specific needs.

6. Pre-revenue businesses lack of historical performance. Some companies are startups and some entrepreneurs may have diverse business backgrounds. We would love to help people in those situations.
7. Constraints from an existing financing structure. A lot of existing structures, a lot of mortgages, that were done in the mid- to late-2000s may have various complexities that could come up. Here at CRE, we would like to help you with those.
8. Absence of a personal guarantee. Many business owners nowadays would like to have what they call a non-recourse loan, which means there is no recourse to the owner, no personal guarantee. Sometimes this is possible, but not always; we could look at the structure and advise you if we'd be able to tailor a loan to not have a personal guarantee.
9. Distressed and work out situations. Over the years, we've seen many work out situations on borrowers who have had distressed real estate. We are experts in this field.
10. When time is of the essence. In real estate and in business, when is time not of the essence? We at CRE Finance understand that your business and your real estate are important and we are here to help.

Many people are unaware that they are bankable. Many people let their real estate or business go before even trying. We want to make sure that doesn't happen to you! Give us a call or shoot us an email at any time. We would love to hear from you!

In the past, we talked about how to package a personal construction loan, and we've recently received a bunch of questions about it that we want to answer today.
One of the most important things is putting together your loan package. To do this, you need the answers to the following questions:

  • What was the price when they acquired the land?
  • Is the land worth more now than when they acquired it?
  • Do they have a performer showing what current and future income will be?
  • Is it a rent scenario? Or are they going to be selling as townhomes and condos?

You must know how to put the package together correctly so it is looked at and underwritten correctly. We at CRE Finance are here to help loan brokers and mortgage brokers do just that. You need to get a non-circumvent agreement and we can give you one that you can use!

We could go on forever about this topic - packaging a personal construction loan can be a big money maker for everyone involved. Give us a call or shoot us an email if you would like our help. Let's get some loans closed here in the last quarter of the year!

One of the biggest problems residential real estate investors face today is going out, doing all the work, and finding a great deal, but only having one to two weeks to pull the trigger and take the deal before another investor gets there. In these situations, the stumbling block is always money.

If you've ever found yourself in this situation, we have the solution for you. We can get you pre-approved for a credit line between $750,000 and $5 million dollars! The idea is to have the money readily available for you so you are ready to pull the trigger should a deal arise.

To qualify for this line of credit, it doesn't matter what your income is or how many properties you own - it's all about the property you intend to buy.

So if you need financial help in order to take advantage of a great investment opportunity, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to hear from you!

How Can We Help You Invest in Real Estate?

Today we are here to talk about residential real estate for investment purchases. We have a ton of clients who watch shows like “Flip this House” or “Flip Las Vegas” who are interested in using real estate as a means to build wealth. I am an investor myself, and have bought and sold over 30 properties in a 5-year period. Nobody knows better than me the blood, sweat, and tears involved in doing this.

At CRE Finance, we have developed a program that allows the residential real estate investor to purchase the property for 70-80% of loan-to-cost. It doesn’t matter how many properties you own with this program, either. Even better, at CRE Finance, we understand residential investors write off a portion of their income. We don’t care about your tax returns, we care about the income that the property and your portfolio will generate.

This is a wonderful program that I’d love to discuss further with you. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call or send me an email! Can’t wait to hear from you soon!
