Our Woking Definition of “Commercial”

For us, “commercial” lending is when a loan is not directly related to Dodd-Frank financial reform act.  Thus credit lines, private money, and agricultural / estate properties are not “true” residential loans – even if some consumer lending is involved.

The good news:  We are active in each of these sectors of lending. If you or a friend is seeking commercial financing – give us a call.  There isn’t much we cannot handle.

Looking Ahead: News and Comments

Long-term Interest rates have trended sideways the past month, even in some cases dropping slightly. This even though the Fed’s keep nudging short-term rates.  This brings conversation of an “inverted yield curve” – comparing 2-year Treasury against 10-year.  With this, based on past patterns, comes a concern of a Fed caused recession.  Let’s hope they do not repeat this pattern again.  In all the times they didn’t, a significant economic slow down generally started 6 months or more, from the point of inversion. The world economy needs a strong US economy, not just the American workers – our first priority.

Let us keep a close watch together, with the hope you keeping coming back each month.

For now, we are in a wait and see mode, while being ever vigilant of both the “good news” and the not so promising news.  We understand that in such times, the “news” is tempted to reach for the dramatic, while ours is to keep to the straight and true, unmoved by the doomsayers.  For me, strength and security are first and foremost, and in this, I am positive.
