Macbook Financing: Finding the Right Plan

If you buy a new laptop through financing you can greatly improve your credit score. Should you choose to receive a loan or some other type of finance solution for a Macbook laptop, you will greatly be able to increase your credit ratings which will make it simpler for you to receive loans later (you will also get lower interest rates). Credit card financing, financing through a bank, and financing through Apple are the tree main ways you can purchase a Macbook via financing. All of these Macbook financing options have a number of pros and cons. The option you choose will also determine the exact interest rates and contract terms.

One of the first options you should look at is financing from Apple, this can be done either through the company or at their website. There are a number of different offers and deals for people who are interested in buying desktops or laptops from them. One example is the deal they have through Barclaycard for 1 year same as cash financing for individuals purchasing an Apple for their first time (they must spend at least 900). This deal only applies providing you are able to pay off the computer within 12 months. If the hardware you’re looking for is under $900, then Apple also has a 0% financing plan for first time buyers, this deal is for 6 months. So if you need to finance a Macbook you should first check out the deals available by Apple at their store.

A second solution is going to a local bank, most banks have financing options made available for people who want to buy a computer. Although the Apple deals are better because they are specialized for computers, banks can still have fairly competitive offers. The US Bank for example has a few options available for those who have interests in Macbook financing. The Premier Line for the US Bank also offers varying interest rates which will be depend on how much money you spend. For example, if you spend over 2500 then you will get an interest rate of about 5.25.

Depending on how much money you spend, other purchases may be from 6.25 to 7.25. If you have to pay your Mac over a few years then you should certainly get your loan from banks instead.

The third option is to finance via a credit card. These cards are now accessible to just about anybody regardless of where they are in the world, almost everybody can also qualify for them. Even if your credit is bad you will still be able to obtain a credit card easily. There are hundreds of places you could obtain a credit card, the most common place to go would be a local bank. You could also apply for one online. Different card credit services have their own special deals and perks so you should research into what available options they have.

Macbook financing isn’t as hard as it sounds once you have a set plan. These three options should give you some good ideas to help formulate a plan that will work well. If you still aren’t sure how to finance your computer then continue to research until you get a solid plan.

Commercial Banks – Better For Business, Better for You

Making use of the services of a commercial bank is one of the best ways that you can finance your business, your mortgage, and your investments. You do not have to be a Fortune 500 company to apply for commercial financing. Commercial banks handle loan applications every day from small businesses and private investors across America. It might be helpful to understand the role of commercial banks and what they can offer you.

They should be seen as distinctly different from retail banks and investment banks. Although many of the larger banks offer retail and investment services, there is still some separation between these specific functions. This has been prescribed by the Glass-Steagall Act, a law which ensures that banks are solely in the business of banking and nothing else. Retail banks deal directly with the consumer. They offer financial solutions and banking facilities for the individual and they process loans for consumers based on their individual income. They handle larger investment loans specifically for businesses.

Although they provide banking services for businesses, this does not mean that entrepreneurs or small business owners cannot apply for a commercial loan. They are always ready to help small businesses. With the economy showing small signs of a recovery, many commercial banks are actively promoting loans and other commercial finance options to people who may not have been eligible in the past. If you are looking for finance or even to refinance a loan, they you should consider applying through a commercial financial institution.

One of the best financing options offered by them is a secured loan. If you are purchasing property or looking for financing for property investment, a secured loan lets you pledge some sort of collateral as the security for the loan. An unsecured loan is a different type of loan that usually involves money being loaned to a borrower without collateral. This could be in the form of an overdraft or even a corporate bond. If you are looking for bridging finance or a hard money loan then you might consider applying to one of the commercial banks for an overdraft credit extension.

If you are in the property market and looking for property financing, applying through a commercial bank should be your first step. The current glut in the real estate market has made a large amount of bank-owned foreclosed properties available for purchase. Commercial banks will be able to assist you in financing a loan to help you buy a property or help restructure your current loan so that it works better for you and your business.

Start-Up Financing – Get a SBA Loan for Start-Up, Franchise, or Business Purchase

One of the best ways to obtain start-up financing for a small business is the SBA 7(a) Loan Program. The SBA (Small Business Administration) is a governmental entity whose sole purpose is to support small business in the United States. One of the programs it sponsors is the 7(a) Loan Program which allows new businesses to take advantage of bank financing.

There are 3 ways to use the SBA 7(a) Loan program when looking to finance your first business using a bank loan. We’ll cover each and how they relate to the 7(a) loan program.

The first business approach that can be utilized under the 7(a) program is starting a business from scratch. This means you’ve created the business idea yourself and you plan on launching your very own business. For this approach you will need to know several things:

30% of the Total Cost to start your business will need to come from your personal cash reserves.
Your Business Plan will need to be strong because you’ll have to convince the bank that even though your idea hasn’t been proven yet, you’re research and numbers show your confidence that it will work.
Keeping the loan amount under $150,000 increases your chances of approval.
You’ll need to make sure your Income/Expense projections are as reliable as possible.
Be prepared to answer several difficult questions from the bank regarding your business concept.

Know that the approval process will be harder when you take this approach to starting your first business, but not impossible. You’ll just need to be a lot more thorough than when using the other 2 approaches.

If you plan on buying a Franchise for your first business, getting approved for a 7(a) loan is a little easier. This is because of the support you will receive from the Franchisor. The strongest Franchisors have 2-3 week training programs which go a long way towards helping you build credibility with a bank. In addition, the on-going support from the Franchisor is a great tool to help make your business successful. Here are several things you need to know:

30% of the Total Cost to start your Franchise will come from your pocket, just like a start-up.
You’ll still need a Business Plan, but a lot of the information you’ll need will come from the Franchisor.
The Franchisor can provide sales results from there franchisees which is very helpful to banks when making a lending decision.
You can count the Franchise Fee as part of your cash injection into the business.
Banks have pre-approved lists of Franchises they are willing to finance. Find out from the bank if your Franchise is on that list. If it’s not, they may still approve a loan for you, but it can take a lot longer because they’ll need to go through a special process to approve the Franchisor.

Those are the basics when looking at financing a franchise. Keep in mind the better quality the Franchise, the better the chances you have of getting approved.

Quick Tip: It can be a red flag if your Franchise is not approved by your bank or the bank tells you it is unwilling to finance the Franchise you have selected. 9 times out of 10 the bank has a good reason for not financing that particular Franchise which could include failed Franchises, or weak on-going support from the Franchisor.

Business Purchase
The final way you can use the SBA 7(a) loan is to buy your first business. This is a little easier than a start-up or a Franchise because the business will need to have been operating for more than 2 years and profitable for you to get a bank loan. A business that’s been operating profitably has proven results which make banks very comfortable when loaning money to buy them. Again, key points you need to consider:

You will only need to come up with 20% of the Total Purchase Price in cash as opposed to 30% with the other 2 options.
In almost all cases the bank will require you to pay for an independent valuation of the business.
A bank usually will not lend more than 50% for the dollar amount beyond the value of the assets of the business (determined by the valuation), otherwise known as Goodwill (or Blue Sky Equity).
The seller can finance a portion of the 20% cash injection you’re required to come up with.
You will need to obtain the last 3 years of business tax returns and financial statements from the seller.

Financing Options for REO Properties

When it comes to purchasing bank-owned foreclosure properties, many would-be buyers are discouraged by a few misnomers. For starters, buyers assume that if they find themselves in a competitive bid situation, their offer package which includes financing the purchase will always lose out to all-cash offers. While if all things are equal cash offers are more attractive, buyers who are financing their purchase have other ways they can make their offer more attractive. But before buyers with financing can play ball in the foreclosure game, they must understand the rules.

Loans for real estate come in all shapes and sizes, known as “programs”. Each program has its set of rules under which the financial institutions are willing to loan their money. For example, some loan programs require a certain down payment percentage, while other loans require that the home be located in an area that is classified as rural. Many buyers, without understanding what they are getting themselves into, try to go for homes where the nature of the sale itself fails to satisfy the terms of the loan program. These offers are discarded immediately, even if the amount offered is attractive to the agency in charge of listing the foreclosure property.

The aforementioned happens most frequently with regards to the home’s condition. This is actually an interesting issue, because buyers spend so much time making sure they qualify for financing that they forget to make sure that the home they want to buy will qualify as well. While some loan programs merely require that the home is in basic functional condition (no broken windows, no holes in roofs), other programs are much stricter. Financing through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), for example, tends to error on the side of caution when approving a home. Issues such as defective paint, soiled or worn-out flooring, and minor pest, electrical or plumbing problems can sink a deal to be financed through the FHA. FHA buyers who make offers on foreclosure properties that aren’t up to snuff are doomed to fail from the start. Such considerations are particularly important when it comes to REO purchases, given that due to the foreclosure process, many REO properties are subject to varying forms of neglect before entering the market.

A good listing agent that represents bank-owned foreclosure properties has an understanding of the condition of their REO listings with regards to their “lendability”. In the world of real estate jargon, lendability is generally defined on a three-tiered basis. First, there are homes that qualify for all types of financing. Secondly, there are homes that qualify for conventional financing only, which is to say that they don’t meet the stricter FHA lendability guidelines. Lastly, we have the homes that are marketed as “cash-only” sales, which means their condition is so poor or there is a fundamental flaw in the home that will prevent it from qualifying for financing. Cash-only deals can be due to overall neglect, or something like a busted septic or failing retaining wall.

So for starters, buyers who are looking for finance their REO purchase need to investigate if the nature of their loan will jive with the nature of their target home. If not, then the type of target home or the loan program must be changed. This is different than with conventional sales, where sellers may be more willing to perform repairs in order to increase the likelihood of loan approval on the home during the negotiation phase. While possible in an REO sale, negotiations for repairs as part of an offer are not always entertained, with the banks preferring to sell their foreclosure properties “as is”.

The frustrations that come with the condition of many bank-owned foreclosure properties has given rise to a loan program that is gaining popularity. The FHA 203k rehab loan is a government-backed loan program where borrowers get a loan on a “fixer-upper” property based on the “as-repaired” value. So if a home is worth X amount of money in its present condition but would be worth Y if it was repaired, the banks lend Y amount of dollars (minus a small down payment) in conjunction with a binding contract to rehabilitate the property. This program not only allows buyers to get into fixer-upper homes with financing, but it gives buyers the freedom to repair and upgrade to their specifications. Clever buyers can use this program to enjoy some of the profit potential associated with the spread between actual repair costs and the market value associated with the repairs.

For those that see the increasing down payment requirements as a barrier to entry when it comes to their foreclosure purchase, the United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a loan program that is designed to promote rural population growth. The USDA loan offers 100% financing (no down payment requirement), granted that the subject property falls within the “rural property” guidelines. Qualification for the USDA loan program can be determined through an interactive map on the USDA website. The interesting thing about the USDA program, apart from being one of the last bastions of 100% financing is their determination of rural property. Rural property is not determined by proximity to metropolitan areas, but by population density from one immediate location to the next. Homes that are in relatively sparsely populated neighborhoods just outside of urban areas are often defined as “rural”. So when considering a home to buy, it may be worthwhile to check whether or not it is classified as rural, because the answer may prove to be pleasantly surprising.

When competing against all-cash offers, buyers looking to purchase bank-owned foreclosure properties can win, but they must be on top of their game in every way. First off, one advantage that borrower-buyers hold is that they may not be looking for as large of a discount as cash buyers. Cash buyers, given the strength of their position, often approach the negotiation table under the assumption that they are entitled to an additional discount. This leaves an opening for borrower-buyers to exploit, as long as they can present their financial position as strong as possible. In order to do that, they must have comprehensive pre-approval not just for themselves as borrowers, but with a loan program that will not raise any issues with the present condition of the subject property.

Buyers purchasing REO properties with financing can’t rely on their solely on their own efforts, they must have their entire house in order. Lenders, inspectors, and appraisers must be brought on board with the situation, and have everything they need handy to expedite the process. By pushing the generally accepted time frames for the purchase process with financing, sharp buyers can offer the fastest allowable close, which will help them compete with cash buyers who are subject to fewer time constraints. In the end the right home, the right loan, the right team and the right strategy, coupled with the requisite preparation can help ensure the best possible foreclosure purchase process. It may seem like a lot of work or a large investment of time, but it pales in comparison to the work and time that one must pledge in order to reconcile poor purchase decisions.

Diversify Your Business Finance


The Government has announced a new initiative to help diversify business finance which will be led by UK industry experts from both the business and finance sectors.

UK businesses still rely heavily on bank funding to help finance their business activities even though there are many alternative sources of funding available to them in today’s ever changing financial marketplace.

The Government wants to ensure, in light of recent and current banking reforms, that the flow of finance to businesses is maintained. Alternative sources of finance will be crucial to help businesses deliver the wider economic growth the UK economy needs.

The panel of experts will seek to establish a framework of alternative finance sources by working with businesses and business investors, financial institutions and providers of alternative finance to coordinate and facilitate the availability of funding that businesses need.

Bank lending

Even though there has been a recorded increase in new lending from the largest banks this year many businesses are still unhappy with bank lending levels and how they have been treated by their banks.

Tighter lending criteria, non-renewal of overdraft facilities and poor communication by the banks are the common problems cited by businesses as making their funding objectives difficult to achieve.

Without the finance they need, UK businesses struggle to survive and grow, and so the UK economy does the same. This is why the Government is not only introducing schemes to increase bank lending but is also keen to encourage as much competition in the financial market as possible and provide a wide range of alternative sources of finance to UK businesses.

Alternative finance

There is already a wide range of alternative finance sources available to businesses.

One of the biggest barriers to increasing the take up of these sources of finance is simply general awareness. New and emerging providers of alternative financial products do not have the branch infrastructure that makes for the efficient and effective distribution of their products.

The other important factor here is that many owners and managers of small and medium sized businesses, which are the backbone of the UK economy, are unaware of the range of alternative finance available and where to find it.

New methods of communication are required and it is hoped this will be a key objective of the Government’s initiative.

Invoice Finance

Invoice finance is one of the most popular options in the alternative finance portfolio and has grown over the last fifteen years from about 13,000 companies using it in the UK to over 50,000 companies now.

This extremely flexible method of business finance advances funds against unpaid sales invoices. There are variations within the invoice finance family of products which includes invoice factoring and invoice discounting.

The invoice finance lenders will advance up to 95% against a company’s unpaid sales invoices and use the sales ledger as security by taking assignation of the invoice and so the outstanding debt is effectively owned by them.

When the invoice is paid by the company’s customer the invoice finance company will pay over the balance of the invoice that has not been funded after deducting their fees. There is usually a charge for the facility and an interest charge for the amount of funding advanced.

One of the main benefits of invoice finance is that the facility will grow as the business grows thus making it a very effective method of funding working capital.

Racing Awards, Medals and Customized Gear for Runners

Running, whether it be a 5k with the family, a 10k for an extra challenge, or a marathon for the elite runners, can be a very exciting and memorable experience. Running is a very personal sport to lots of people, as it can be great exercise and can make you look and feel very refreshed. Tons of awards are given out to winners at races each year. For people organizing these racing events, finding customized and personal running gear can be difficult, as well as finding unique prizes for running champions. When orchestrating a race, you want to have a memorable competition. Medals and unique prizes can help to make the race more exciting. Participants can keep prizes as souvenirs, and remember the experience better because of a keepsake.
The most important souvenir a competitor can take home is a winning medal. Those are worn with pride, and showed to family members and friends. They are often hung on walls, or shown off where they can be seen. Of course, medals need to be personalized, unique, and specific. You cannot award a running champion with a medal that doesn’t recognize what it’s for. It is often a perfect idea to find a company that will provide you with customized prizes for winners. Often, you can ask for customized medals that include the date, the name of the race, and the name of the company sponsoring and orchestrating the event. That way, when people proudly show their winning medal to others, the people who made the event happen will receive the credit and publicity they deserve.

In addition to medals, running apparel and gear can be a great way to make the race more memorable. Unlike medals, gear is commonly worn and would be used often. Passing out swag, such as customized shirts, jackets, hats, and bags can be a great way to add to the excitement of the race. Races with their own gear are viewed as more unique, as they have customized logos and attractive designs. Shirts can be given out to families, and jackets can be sold at the finish line. Hats can be passed out before the race to keep the sun out of the athlete’s eyes. And, of course, bags can be kept forever and used for multiple occasions. Having the name and date of your race on these items can help to increase publicity and help the runners remember what a successful and memorable race it was. Customizing these mementos can help to define a great race, and will definitely help a race to be more exciting and enjoyable.

Types of Wood Siding Available for Homeowners

When building your home, even the smallest decision could make a world of difference in what it ultimately looks like. This is also true when undertaking an exterior redesign project. Siding, among other key characteristics, is one of those big decisions that could entirely alter your home’s exterior appeal based on your decision.
Although plastic siding has become a popular option in recent years due to pricing, traditional wood siding remains the preference for many homeowners. This is because wood siding offers customers numerous benefits over their plastic counterparts. Benefits include:

• Wood siding is eco-friendlier than plastic

• Wood is more aesthetically appealing

• Many types of wood are naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and rot, which allows the home owner less maintenance

• Wood lasts longer

• …And much more

One of the main benefits is that wood naturally takes to paint, stains, and other decorative options incredibly well. Plastic, on the other hand, often must be crafted in the customer’s color choice – meaning that options are limited. Once decided upon a type of wood siding, however, you can then choose any type of finish. Whether you want to paint your home the colors of the rainbow, or opt for a natural dark wood stain, anything is possible. Below we look at four of the most commonly used types of siding available: board and batten siding, bevel, tongue and groove, and lap siding. Each has their own aesthetic appeal so that there is something for every person’s unique tastes.

Board and Batten Siding

Board and batten siding is a vertical design created by using two different sized boards. The wider boards are set beneath, while the narrower boards are placed atop the joins. These narrower boards are called ‘battens.’ There are no set widths, so homeowners can choose their preference. The most commonly used measurements, however, are 1 inch by 3 inch battens placed over 1 inch by 10 inch boards.

Bevel Siding

Bevel siding is the most commonly used siding. Installed horizontally, boards are cut at an angle so that one side is thicker than the others. This creates a shingle effect, or the appearance that the boards are overlapping one another. Tongue and Groove Siding Tongue and groove siding is incredibly versatile. Available in both rough and smooth board finishes, it is fitted together tightly to give a sleek appearance. It can be installed in any direction, which does not only include horizontal and vertical, but also diagonal.

Lap Siding

Lap Siding is also known as Channel siding. This siding is very versatile, with installation capabilities for any direction (like the above tongue and groove siding). This unique siding features boards which partially overlap one another, and the ultimate results are a rustic appearance like those of a hunting cabin. If you’re interested in learning even more about wood siding -including less commonly used types available – you can contact your local siding specialist or construction expert. They will be able to give you more detailed information, including a price estimate for your area.
