Can anyone help me with hard money or 100% commercial lending?

I've started my own company and want to buy commercial real estate with that company, but keep running into road blocks with getting started. I wanted to do hard money or some kind of 100% commercial lending to do my first deal and get started, but it seems everyone that did offer these kinds of programs does not offer anything near them anymore. How is someone such as myself supposed to get started up? I have no money for a downpayment, but have spent the past six years of my life meticulously learning through classes and advisors as much as I could - and now that I have the company in place I need to get started. I greatly appreciate any constructive advice, guidance, or direction.

I'm in the same postion. What we have to do is find a good deal. Then we put together a solid business plan and shop it to private investors. Many people have money "sitting" in various investments and slow earning accounts with low rates of return. We can show them how to greatly increase the return with investments secured by Real Estate.
I am including a link to a FREE resource to learn about private money, and Joint Venturing.
Yours in Success,

Unfortunately there are typically not programs for hard money loans at 100% LTV.. allot of folks will claim they can do it, get an upfront fee, and then you will never hear from them again. One option would be to try and cross collateralize this property with other assets you might have or possibly approach the seller about structuring a lease purchase option to allow you to build up some cash reserves and your balance sheet. Good luck.
