It's difficult to get commercial loans because...

  1. Banks a being scrutinized by the FDIC and regulators.
  2. Approving officers at the banks are worried about industry trends.
  3. Approving officers have had bad experiences with certain industries and loan types.
  4. Government guarantees have not always performed as the banks expected.
  5. Secondary market investors are more conservative.
  6. Borrowers are not often prepared for contingency risk but are willing to gamble it all for an opportunity.
  7. Economic uncertainty.
  8. Banks have lost money to many borrowers they felt were a good risk before the economic crisis.
  9. Commercial underwriting is subjective.
  10. Appraisers are not confidently valuing properties in the current climate.
  11. Property values are very volatile for real estate and used equipment.
  12. The market in general is bought and sold at significant discounts as people cut their losses and liquidate assets.
  13. Rates are low which create tighter operating margins for some lenders/brokers.
  14. There are fewer loan programs available at this time.
  15. Borrowers are not as liquid as they once were.
  16. Personal credit is not clean for most borrowers.
(Comments disabled) to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
