What Is A Commercial Real Estate Loan?

A business real estate loan is specifically for purchasing, developing, and building new or existing Commercial real estate (CRE). Essentially, CRE is an income-producing property zoned and used for commercial purposes.
For example, shopping centers, office buildings, and hotels are some of the most common types of CRE.

Commercial Real Estate Loan Features

  • The borrower is a business entity such as a corporation, developer, limited partnership, fund, or trust.
  • Terms for commercial mortgages typically range from five years or less to 20 years.
  • A larger down payment is generally required for a business mortgage–20-35% depending on the financial state of your business.
  • The loan is secured with a lien on the property being financed.

  • Business tax returns
  • Your books, records and financial reports
