Local Company Provides Cash Solutions for Commercial Property Owners

TAMPA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 15, 2006 -- In a perfect world, everyone has great credit, golden tax returns and enough capital to personally fund their next acquisition. Unfortunately, about 90% of us do not live in that world. The fact is many of us will not qualify through traditional banks. So, what is the alternative? Welcome all to Martin & Mercer, L.L.C. Martin & Mercer was established to offer commercial mortgages with speed, flexibility and great terms to business owners, entrepreneurs and investors. They specialize in stated income/stated asset commercial lending throughout Florida and offer many benefits a bank simply cannot provide. For instance, unlike most banks, they do not require tax returns to qualify for financing, nor do they charge a commitment fee. None of their programs are balloon mortgages (A balloon mortgage requires the client to payoff the entire loan within a specified period of time, usually three to five years). They also do not limit the amount of "cash-out" a client can receive through a refinance and they do not delegate how the money is used. Fewer restrictions allow them to be much more flexible, which makes them a great alternative lending source for the many small business owners and commercial property investors who cannot qualify through traditional bank institutions. Martin & Mercer understands cash businesses. Whether you're looking to finance your next acquisition or need to access capital for expansion, debt consolidation, inventory or your own personal use, Martin & Mercer will make it easy to get the cash you need -- fast! By using a simplified 3-step application process similar to a residential mortgage, loans generally close within four to six weeks of the initial loan application. They lend up to $1 million and finance most commercial property types. "We have solved the self-employed borrower dilemma with stated income/stated asset underwriting for commercial loans," said Shane Martin, partner of Martin & Mercer, L.L.C. "When the bank cannot provide financing for their client, we are the best option. Rather than compete with the banks, we offer a completely unique loan program which enables us to work together and provide solutions for an underserved market. This results in a win-win situation for everyone, especially the client."
