Creepy Commercial Finance Update

It’s October, and I’ve got Halloween on the brain. Several years ago, my family started the tradition of sending Halloween cards. We pick a theme, have professional photos taken, and get ahead of the holiday card rush. Last year, we did an Alice in Wonderland theme. The Addams Family was another of my favorites. I could go on about this but know you’re busy, so I’ll get to the point: I have a lot of fun at home and at the office around Halloween.

Even our Commercial Finance Update has taken a turn for the creepy this month. As usual, you’ll find up-to-date information about our below-market interest rates and you can read about a project we worked on for one of our clients (this one is in Sebastian, FL), but there

Commercial Finance Update - August 2013

The economy’s in full-blown recovery mode…or is it? Economic reports say things are getting better, but I know for a fact that many small business owners still don’t have the certainty or confidence to make significant growth decisions (hiring, expansion, etc.).

Entrepreneurial Founding Fathers

Entrepreneurial Founding Fathers

When the United States of America was founded by those who went before us, an enormous entrepreneurial experiment began. Massive risks were taken by the men who declared their independence from those who sought to oppress them, and those of us who are business owners understand what that’s like. Now, the stakes are a bit different — very little blood is shed over a startup business these days — but the risks are real and very scary at times. It can feel like life-or-death more often than any of us would like to admit. So, as we approach America’s Independence Day, I’d like America’s small business owners to know that their ingenuity, hard work, sacrifices, and determination to succeed are appreciated and admirable.

However, did you know that Independence Day was technically yesterday? I wrote about this a couple years ago, but I just find it fascinating and must re-share. The Second Continental Congress voted to declare independence from Britain on July 2nd, 1776, and John Adams (our second President) had this to say about it:

Commercial Finance Update for June 2013 from Mercantile Capital Corporation

We’re headed toward the dog days of summer (here in Florida, it already feels like we’re in the thick of it), so I’d like to share some news that may prove helpful in this slow-moving middle part of the year. I’ve heard from numerous people that our past monthly Commercial Finance Updates have proven invaluable, so I’ll be making them available here going forward.

If you advise small business owners in any way, you ought to download and share with them our Commercial Finance Update for June below. It explains a little about why our SmartChoice® Commercial Loan is often the very best deal for small business owners who want to purchase or construct commercial property. It also talks about where interest rates are right now and where they’re going. This will be a very helpful thing when you find yourself in a conversation with a client about commercial property and financing.
