A prudent and logical approach for business borrowers is to investigate the viable options for reducing current levels of small business bank financing and commercial debt because of serious deficiencies with commercial banking services now available to small businesses. A growing number of business owners are seeking business finance advice about how to reduce small business debt and commercial bank financing.

In most cases, the commercial lending struggle with banks is not one openly sought by small business owners. The increasing inability of banks and other business lenders to provide adequate amounts of business loans and working capital financing has produced this practical outcome. In fact over the years most commercial borrowers have probably viewed their business banking relationships on a friendly and loyal basis. Massive changes are literally forcing small businesses to examine and revise their business financing strategies, much as seen with many other business practices.

Evaluating whether there are realistic alternatives to replace their current bank financing and commercial debt would be one possible outcome for business borrowers. Refinancing business debt with a new commercial lending source would be a normal and practical result. For one example, exploring business financing options to obtain working capital financing elsewhere would be smart for a small business with a commercial line of credit that is about to be eliminated or reduced (as is now happening on a widespread basis).

It will be wise to explore small business finance alternatives even in situations where business owners are not being forced to acquire a new source for their commercial loans immediately. Very little notice has been provided to impacted commercial borrowers in most recent examples of banks which have revoked existing small business loans.

Small business owners analyzing whether it is feasible to permanently reduce commercial debt and small business bank financing is another effective business financing option. With this approach, commercial borrowers would focus on reducing their overall business debt rather than merely finding a new home for their small business loans. When done successfully, this strategy permanently decreases interest expenses for the business. It will probably also improve credit ratings for the business and the business owners, and this can improve interest rates on whatever amount of business financing might still be needed.

The strategy of permanently reducing business debt is one which is likely to grow in popularity for commercial borrowers. There is a refreshing trend among individuals as well as businesses to stop using the services of companies which mistreat their customers on an ongoing basis. As reflected in a review of a wide variety of publications, such mistreatment unfortunately appears to be common with small business lending providers. Since this disturbing trend is especially evident among larger banks, one small business financing option that deserves to be thoroughly evaluated is whether it is feasible to simply find a better and friendlier (and more effective) commercial lender. Certainly it seems that a worthy goal would be ensure that small businesses find a good (effective) bank to replace a bad (ineffective) bank to the extent that they find that they still need some bank financing.

Investing in Distressed Debt

Originally posted 2010-03-15 23:59:52. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Many sophisticated investors are now investing in distressed debt, including distressed real estate mortgages.

For example, John Paulson, who runs the $36 billion hedge fund firm Paulson & Co, is looking to buy distressed mortgages and distressed debt, despite being bearish on the overall economy, Bloomberg reported. Paulson wrote in a 2009 outlook to investors that he is interested in investing in debt restructurings, bankruptcies, strategic mergers and financial recoveries. Paulson’s opinion is entitled to great weight as he made billions betting the subprime market would crash and was one of the few to get it right.

Economic Outlook Favors Distressed Debt

Distressed investments are good values during bad business times and bad periods in the credit cycle where there is a bad economy, a bear market in stocks and increasing defaults. As we can easily see, distressed assets are now in favor. Conventional knowledge rightly suggests that in a period of economic contraction, debt, rather than equity, is a good investment strategy.

Risks of Distressed Debt

Distressed debt requires considerable expertise. Such debt is subject to serious legal issues, including possible bankruptcy proceedings, that require experience and expertise to successfully navigate.

Traps for the Unwary in Buying Distressed Mortgages

There are also several traps for the unwary in buying distressed mortgages. First, the buyer of a distressed mortgage may want to bring a foreclosure proceeding to take over the house. This inevitably will cost time and money. Depending on the local courts, and the willingness of the homeowner to contest the foreclosure, such proceedings can take as much as a year. During this time, there may be no income on the mortgage while taxes and insurance costs have to be paid. Legal issues, such as the inability to find the mortgage note in mortgages that have been sold into pools, may stall foreclosures. Some mortgage pools were improperly assembled and documented, making foreclosure difficult.

Further, during the foreclosure proceedings, a disgruntled homeowner may actually damage the home to spite the lender. In our market, we have reports of even homeowners of very expensive homes vandalizing homes by doing such things as painting "Screw First National Bank" on the walls and punching holes in them. At the least, the homeowner’s efforts at maintenance and repair will be minimal or nonexistent. The worst-case scenario is when the home is vacant, leaving it open to decay and vandalism. It is enough to give the distressed debt owner nightmares.

Adding to the nightmare is the fact that in many communities, the zoning and building code game is designed to help the local established contractors keep market share. In some communities, if the property is deemed to have a need of 40% or more of repair, the property needs to be rebuilt up to current building code standards, in effect allowing you no more than a physical shell that would require almost new construction. Thus, the lender or distressed debt owner has to act as though the property consists of only a piece of land.

Further, in certain communities with impact fees, the lender would have to pay an impact fee. Many older properties had not paid a fee and the local communities are looking for revenue. They may demand an impact fee be paid before allowing this "substantial rehab" to occur.

Also, many communities have six-month grandfather clauses that provide that if they can show that a non-conforming use has ceased to operate for six months, the community can deny a certificate of occupancy and demand the property be rebuilt up to current standards.

Bulk REO

We see many people chasing bulk REO properties where a bank is selling a pool of single-family homes they have foreclosed on. We believe that banks will tend to sell the worst properties they own in these pools, especially those that may have EPA problems, zoning problems, repair problems, impact fee problems or other problems. The buyer has a limited time to review these properties and may not be aware of the problems he is buying. While real estate is a business where knowledge of the local market is essential, some bulk REO pools contain properties that are spread out over dozens of states, making local market knowledge impossible and management of the property a daunting task.

Better than Distressed Debt

We believe that there is a better strategy than buying distressed real estate debt. We believe that the more you look at the real estate market, the more you start to realize that buying distressed homes can offer better returns with less risk.

Such a strategy of buying distressed homes consists of advertising for distressed real estate sellers, negotiating deep discounts, and reselling these homes to buyers with less than perfect credit using lease options that allow lease-option buyers to lease the home while they are repairing their credit to qualify for a mortgage.

We can buy single-family homes at deep discounts that are comparable to the discounts offered by buying distressed mortgages. These large discounts are possible for a number of reasons. In this real estate market, home sellers face a huge imbalance in supply and demand. Home sellers listing their homes could wait as much as a year to sell, during which time the outlook for prices is a decline. Further, with the decline in the availability of mortgage credit, few buyers can get mortgages. In our market, banks are overloaded with residential real estate loans and do not want to make any more. Further, the seller has to compete with real estate that is being dumped on the market in foreclosures proceedings and in sales of real estate owned by the mortgage lenders.

When a distressed seller enters this market, the distressed seller needs cash and he needs it fast. He finds that there are few if any buyers. To more his home fast, he needs to sell at a very low price. Thus, it is possible to buy homes at prices that are equivalent to the prices that are paid for distressed debt on similar properties.

The difference between buying the distressed debt and buying the distressed property is that the distressed property buyer has total ownership and control of the property while the distressed debt buyer is at the mercy of the property owner in a bad real estate market. The distressed homebuyer has all the equity and can improve the property easily and immediately re-sell or lease it.


In sum, in terms of return on investment, obtaining an asset that has to be foreclosed at 30% of its face value and praying that the asset is salvageable and serviceable at the end of the perfection/foreclosure cycle may not be cheap enough if the cost of bringing it back up to habitable status is 70% of the value. We believe that the more you study the matter, the more buying distressed homes offers better returns with less risk.

Debt Relief Solution Tips For Everyone

Originally posted 2010-03-27 23:47:22. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

It should come as no surprise that people from all walks of life are in debt. The Federal Reserve Bard estimates that 44% of all Americans are in debt, although some critics think this number is actually much higher. With all of these people mired in debt, there is a great need for debt relief solutions. Here are the most practical debt relief solution tips given to you from a former homeless person.

Keep Your Eyes On The Prize

Figuring out your current finances and taking proactive steps to manage your money takes time, dedication and nerve. The best debt relief solution advice I can give is this debt will not go away on its own. Don’t expect to win the lottery or have your credit card company suddenly get blown to kingdom come. The sooner you deal with the problem, the sooner you will be on the road to a debt relief solution.

The main goal is to spend less money than you earn. There is a long, winding road to take before you can get to that goal. Sometimes, it might seem very frustrating learning about money management and giving up what you can’t afford, but if you keep your eyes on the prize, you will get to your goal, look back, and realize the journey was all worthwhile.

Write It Down

In order to begin your journey to a debt relief solution, you need to know where all your money is going to. Keep a notebook or journal of where every penny goes for a week. Multiply this by four and you’ll see what your average monthly expenses are. If you live with other people in your household, have them all write down what they spend in a week and then consolidate the lists. Right away, you can see where you can cut back or cut out.

Calling The Professionals

If your total debt is over four figures, then you really need to consider getting professional money management help to get to your goal of a debt relief solution. Contact your creditors or your bank to see what debt relief services they recommend. Most of these services are low cost to no cost. You will not only have a consolidation loan given to you, but money management counseling, too.

Some of these debt management services are more legal than others. Be wary of any debt management service that offers you a loan without looking at your current financial situation. Be wary of any service that advises or strongly suggests that you lie or falsify information to get a loan. And never believe any service that says they can change your credit report that’s illegal and often impossible.

Credit Card Debt Relief Made Simple

If you have difficulties on paying all your credit card bills, it is greatest that you keep just one (or two) card in order that you can pay it off easily. If you fail to adhere to one or any of these cards, they might up your rate of interest or lower your credit limit and credit score as a punishment for not paying in time. However, they’ll still, and most probably, not cancel your credit card. That way you’ll have a card to use when required for leasing a car, etc. and a start to improving your credit.

The original debt collectors aren’t to be considered as debt collectors as mentioned in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Their collection activities aren’t governed by the FDCPA. Usually the credit card debt that is to be charged off after six months of missed payment is managed by the debt collector who’s covered by the FDCPA.

Answer to every initial communication from a spam debt purchaser, collection agency or collection attorney with a deny/dispute/debt validation letter sent CRRR.

In July 2010, The Federal Trade Commission has applied new rules involving upfront fees, prohibiting companies to collect these upfront fees in exchange for clearing the credit card debt.

Payment Plan Settlements can be dangerous and risky.

The majority of the credit card debt relief scams have one thing in common. These people demand an upfront before begin working. Do not ever part with your money until you’re sure of the results.

One of the best ways to settle your credit card debt is with the help of an attorney. You may always have an attorney on your side and have an option of bankruptcy and there’re chances that the creditor may not be paid anything. With regards to paying fees, it is far better to pay small fee to the attorney instead of paying 15 percent of the total debt amount to any debt settlement firm.

Everybody is entitled to the right of having a nearby trial in a legal court district where he lives. That signifies that to actually pursue a court case against you, a credit card provider should find a local collection attorney to open a case against you in your court district and to send you a summons.

“I’m not in receipt of any documents which verify I owe your client’s money, ”When sending a debt collection attorney a debt validation letter, this kind of language puts them on notice that they’ll need to correctly document the alleged debt if they’re to be successful in the court (credit card debt relief act). Normally they do not provide an signed agreement, accounting of charges, interest against the supposed balance or any kind of proof of the ownership of debt by the client.

When a client debtor sends a debt validation letter to a debt collector within 30 days of receipt of a mini Miranda notice, she or he may instruct the debt collector to cease all collection activity such as phone calls. If the debt collector phones the creditor within these times, the debt collector will be fined $1000 as it is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act .

Just because the plaintiff’s collection attorney says something on paper or on the phone doesn’t make it true or even legal. The FDCPA considered collection attorney as debt collectors. Some of them may lie in oral communication but they don’t do so with written information. Ensure that you don’t convinced by their threats to take law suit.

With a jobless rate that continues to be high caused by a stagnant economy, there is a good deal of folks who sadly are utilizing bad credit loan lenders as a means to help pay their month-to-month bills. And a large number of prognosticators are indicating that the present economic problems are not going to get much better anytime soon. Whether it’s someone falling behind on their home or car payment, or if it’s a high consumer credit card debt, many folks personal credit rating are taking a hit nowadays. So, we will go over the pros and cons of utilizing bad credit loan lenders and then give you tips and hints on how you can strengthen your credit. Let’s first explain the drawbacks of taking out a poor credit financial loan.

Quite possibly the most undesirable aspect of utilizing bad credit loan lenders is the rate of interest they charge. Businesses that provide poor credit financial loans charge a much higher interest rate than a regular loan lender. The reason why they charge a higher interest rate is to balance out the financial risk they are taking to lend money to somebody with poor credit. Consumers have to be more educated on what the actual APR (annual percentage rate) is, and what amount they’re going to be paying in interest expense though out the course of the financial loan.

A further main downside to utilizing a poor credit financial loan provider is that your really not solving the problem that got you into the mess in the first place. Oftentimes a person may possibly use a poor credit financial loan to pay off high credit card debts, by way of example. This makes no sense. The only way to address the predicament is to figure out what got you into this dilemma in the first place.

Next we will discuss the benefits of utilizing a poor credit financial loan provider.

I am going to be truthful with you here, but the only real benefit (if you want to call it a benefit) of utilizing poor credit loans are loan consolidations. With a loan consolidation, you merge and or combine all of your debts e.g. car loans, student loans, credit-based card debts, into one individual month-to-month payment. The loan consolidation business is supposed to work out a lower rate of interest with your creditors on your behalf, and this is supposed to be one of the benefits of these kinds of loans. This in turn could possibly allow you to have a more manageable (single) month-to-month payment than you had formerly — when you were burdened with numerous high interest debt payments e.g. credit cards, car loans, student loans. But, and to be perfectly honest with you, when you utilize a debt consolidation loan, you really are not confronting the problem that got you into this dilemma in the first place and as a end result you are pretty much just kicking the can down the road. So let’s figure out how to fix the real problem.

How you can Fix your Poor Credit

Trimming your debt is one of the very first important things that needs to be performed. The best way to take care of this is to start out by paying off your smaller debt obligations first, then undertake the bigger debts later on.

So next you should take a look at your credit report for any inaccuracies. Lawfully speaking, you have the right to remedy any information that you find that is incorrect on your credit report.

The next step is for you to get caught up on any overdue accounts. This accounts for a major piece of your credit ratings.

Another important step in restoring your poor credit is making sure your credit cards are not maxed out. They call this credit utilization. Credit utilization is the unpaid balance in relation to your line of credit. It is imperative that the debt on your credit card is well below the credit limit, and this also accounts for a major portion on your credit score.

From here you will want to establish new credit. Now, there are numerous ways for you to establish a new line of credit. One very easy way is to open up a department store credit card, but only if you pay off the balance in full each month. An additional strategy to establish new credit is to take out a really small short-term loan, but again only if you have the funds to pay it back immediately.

Finally, we’re going to give you a checklist of the finest poor credit restoration providers currently:

  • My Credit Group
  • Ovation Credit
  • Credit Assistance Network
  • Consumer Credit Capital
  • Veracity Credit
  • Sky Blue Credit
  • DSI Solutions
  • MSI Credit Solutions
  • Lexington Law

So just what exactly our final recommendation is, is that you need to steer clear from implementing the services of bad credit loan lenders all together, and for you to do so at all cost. Self discipline (controlling your spending habits), as well as confronting the issues that got you in this situation at the start, is what’s going to in the end fix the issue.

For more worthwhile strategies and tips I recommend that you stop by Poor Credit Loan Lenders where we will assist you to not only fix your credit, but also re-establish your life.

Debt Problem Warning Signs

Many Americans have over spent during the last 3 years. It has created a major credit problem for most. Here are some important indicators to help you see if you are on the verge of major debt problems:

You have little or no savings – Very often, people fall into bankruptcy because they have some unexpected expense. If you have no savings built up, it means that any medical emergency, car accident or other unforeseen challenge will have to be paid for on credit.

You only make minimum payments on your credit card debt – When you only pay the minimum balance on your credit card debt, you are practically giving you money away to credit card companies, lenders and banks. You accrue the most interest on your credit card debt making minimum payments, and thus you really are not solving your debt problems.

You continue making credit card purchases, even though you are trying to pay off those same cards – If you were trying to bail the water out of a boat, you wouldn’t put it back into the ocean would you? The same logic applies to credit card debt; if you know you have a debt problem, put the plastic away until you can get the balance down to either zero or at least a manageable number.

You have at least one credit card or line of credit that is near or over its credit limit – A sure sign of a potentially major debt problem is when your lines of credit are all used up. If you do not have enough money in your paycheck to fund your expenses, and you have used up all of your credit lines, what will you turn to in order to make ends meet? Debt problems often begin to become obvious when a consumer has no money left just before rent is due, or a car payment. This is when you have nowhere to turn since all your credit cards are maxed out.

One last sign of debt problems is when you are occasionally late in making payments on your bills, your credit cards and other monthly expenses – Once you are late once, it becomes okay to be late a second time. Part of the snowball effect is when a consumer gets so overwhelmed with their debt problems that paying bills in general becomes too much. Soon enough, all of the mail begins to take on a pink tone (meaning Past Due notices) and potential debt problems become massive debt problems.

If you are wondering if your finances exhibit any warning signs of potential debt problems, check the above five warning signals. If one of more of these sounds familiar, you should immediately take stock of your finances and see where you can cut back, whether you can make more money or if you need some sort of outside assistance.
