Talking About Government Loans!Regardless of political affiliation or how you feel about the government, there is one thing that is very helpful in commercial today, government-backed loans. Because the government is backing them, money is readily available on these types of deals all day. In past newsletters, we have explored SBA loans. But I want to talk today about a much lesser known loan, a USDA loan. These loans can be used for owner-occupied businesses, like the SBA loan, but can also be used for INVESTOR PROPERTIES! They can go all the way up to $10 Million – much higher than SBA. (0 comments)

With all of the deals that I have seen recently. I can tell people are starting to get desperate. They are starting to to take short cuts, instead of doing things the right way.

We are starting to close a lot of these loans but I still see a lot of people trying to do loans that make no sense. You need to understand these deals. Hard money does not mean stupid money.
