The Five Cs…and a Moustache…

Mortgage and Lending with Mercantile Capital Corporation

If you’ve been keeping up with my “Five Cs” series, you’ll know there are three left that I haven’t covered (Character and Capacity are already here on the blog somewhere). I got ambitious the other day and decided to knock out the other three — Collateral, Credit Analysis, and Conditions — all at once. In today’s video blog, I deliver a description of each of these last three Cs plus a wrap-up of all five (in order of importance)…and I do it all while wearing a moustache.



That’s right, my upper lip is warm and cozy these days because I’m participating in Movember. What’s Movember, you ask? You’ll have to watch the video to find out (or go to Just don’t giggle so much that you miss the important stuff about small business financing… :)


If this series on the Five Cs of small business commercial real estate financing has been helpful, you can say ‘thanks’ by sharing this with a friend (or six) — someone who’ll also appreciate it. If you ever have any questions about the type of financing we provide, or how we can help you or your small business clients, leave a comment below or email me at


Thanks for watching, sharing, and not poking too much fun at my ‘stache!
