Remember when business owners and commercial real estate investors were able to go to the bank and get cash when they needed it. Well that is not the case in this environment. Thousands of banks have been issued cease and desist orders by the Fed to stop them from making loans until classified assets (bad loans) are cleared off the books.
Not known to many business owners and commercial real estate investors is the availability of Private Capital for business purposes in the form of Collateral based loans. Business and real estate owners can get $ 100,000 to $ 20,000,000 strictly based on the asset or collateral value of commercial real estate, heavy equiptment, accounts recievable, inventory and yes, even purchase orders, regardless of credit scores, income or financial stability.

Most banks are not doing construction loans which has put a strain on the current inventory of new construction space for rental or purchase in the market. The following is a case report that AMUSA Commercial Capital recently closed on a Commercial Construction deal in Houston.
The builder developer was at a stand still on the construction of a 12,000 square foot office warehouse project in Houston that he had pre-leased with a move in date of September 1st. His application at the bank had been stalled and was tied up in committee red tape. The builder owned the building site valued at $ 250,000 free and clear and needed about $ 600,000 to complete the building project. He contacted AMUSA late July and AMUSA closed the loan before August 1st which will allow the builder to meet his deadline for CO. AMUSA used the existing bank appraisal to approve and close the loan. AMUSA also arranged the permanent financing amortized over 25 years at 5.4% to take out the construction loan once the property has been completed and stabilized.
