The time to arrange for all of this is before you sign a purchase contract. This is like the cowboys in the old westerns riding into a box canyon and then having to fight their way out.

Would the seller consider accepting a note for 10% or 20% more that was secured by your friend?s home, cars and trucks, and business ownership instead of the property he has sold?

I am really new to this business and have a situation. A friend of mine has a plumbing business. He is looking to expand and had put $5,000 down on a building he his buying for $25,000. The owner will carry the financing. The building is assessed for $33,000. He would like to get a loan for $60,000. $20K to pay off the building, $10K for repairs/upgrades to the building, $10K for working capital and the balance to pay off some loans he has so he only has one payment. He says he would like a loan he can pay off in 10 years and is able to afford a $750/mo payment.

Any suggestions? I would really like to help him out and make some $$ for myself in the process if possible.

I appreciate any thoughts you all may have.

You?re talking about a commercial business loan. No Real Estate loan would ever go for 200% LTV. Suggest he contact his local banker for a small business loan.
