Well that just went against the " Milestone Canon firewall"..

Interesting and thank you IPVM. 4% is in fact below the norm. Most of the rates I have seen and negotiated are at least 3-5 time greater than that.

Worth taking another look at after some years have passed.

4% is in fact below the norm. Most of the rates I have seen and negotiated are at least 3-5 time greater than that.

Mark, can you clarify? When you say 3-5 times greater, you mean 12-15% interest rate?

Yes. A well known underwriter for security equipment leases has confirmed with me within the last year, on two different occasions that their rate is 15-20%, with 21 being their target.

Mark -

Not sure who you are referring to, but I have a contact at another leasing company that I've known for while and have spoken with several times over the years.

I got an update this morning on latest rates, and it basically comes down to:

Deals $30K-$60K ~9-12%

Deals $60K-$100K ~7-8%

Deals $100K+ ~6-7%

Deals $300K+ ~5.5-6%

Even a $2000 lease (and yes, they'll go that low) was only "low to mid teens" as he quoted it.

Rates are affected by term, they'll do 12-60 mo. terms, and all deals are non-recourse to the dealer by default (so you still get paid even if the customer defaults).

There is a $125 doc fee, and they look for first and last payment up front.

They do a lot of business with security companies/equipment.

Let me know if you'd like contact info.

Thanks Brian. I appreciate it.
