We know that when our Clients have a better understanding of commercial real estate financing is essential if you want to get the most out of your investment portfolio or business location. Whether you are applying for a single loan for your storefront or looking to significantly invest in real estate, here are the basics to understanding the financing options; that we can assist you with.

First, there are five (5) basic types of financing available for real estate: hard money loans, bridge loans, commercial mortgages, SBA 504, and SBA 7(a) loans. Unlike your primary residence, you’ll have to secure a commercial mortgage or business loan in order to purchase, renovate or expand your commercial building.

Hard money loans, which is a product and service we provide direct, can provide you with one of the most flexible, short-term loan options. These loans are typically backed by an asset, so you can enjoy fast approval and secure a loan even without a high credit score. Of course, all of this flexibility comes at a price. Hard money loans have higher interest rates than many other loan types, so you will need to have a quick payment strategy in place to avoid large interest fees.  We normally will require you to exit from our loans within twelve (12) months.

We also have a NON-SECURED general loan funding program for loans between $10,000 – $400,000.00; that can be used for any use.  We generally use these loans for our Expatriate (Expat) to purchase properties abroad. More importantly, the loans can be used for anything you want. Please complete our Pre-Approval Registry to see if you qualify. This will not affect your credit, nor will we pull your score during this preapproval process. Click the PreApproval Button below to get started. Here are some of the preliminary requirements:

Another short-term commercial real estate loan option is a commercial bridge loan. A bridge loan gives you the leverage you need to make updates or purchase real estate quickly. This allows you to find the time you need to secure a more long-term, low-interest solution.

A traditional commercial mortgage is a strong option if you have a great credit score. This long-term option provides reasonable payments between five and 20 years, so you can take your time and pay off the reasonable interest rates as you earn the capital.

An SBA 504 loan is designed specifically for small business owners who need commercial real estate. If you don’t have a strong financial history or credit score, consider using a 504 to secure up to $5,000,000 for your real estate needs. An SBA 7(a) is a more specialized small business loan for refinancing and purchasing an owner-occupied property.

Now that you have a basic grasp of the commercial real estate options available, you can make an informed decision regarding the best loan for your needs. Whether you’re searching for property for your storefront or considering investing in commercial property as an investment opportunity, secure the best loan option today to enjoy flexible, affordable payments. Understanding the terms and conditions that apply to each loan type allows you to choose the best loan for your needs, so can assist you.
