Commercial Mortgage: The Real Deal On Commercial Lenders

If you need a commercial mortgage, we have many options to fit your budget and needs. Read on to learn more about commercial lending and how it can help you grow your business. 

The commercial real estate market is forever changing and if you do not take the time to keep up, you may be lost when it comes time to consider getting a commercial mortgage for your next endeavor. The truth is that more people than ever are creating new companies and running their own businesses. Moreover, many of these individuals have never had to borrow money for business—unless you’re counting student loans. But, all joking aside if this is your first-time “borrowing for business” you may be surprised at all the things you just didn’t know.

For starters, if you thought Fannie Mae or another governmental institution was going to be your new best friend think again. Though you can still count on these governmental mortgage institution for such commercial properties as multifamily housing,  if you are not in the business of property management  then you will more than likely not be dealing with old’ Fannie or Freddie. Thus, the majority of commercial mortgage loans are brought to you by banks, insurance companies and lenders. Here at Level 4 Funding, we have a specialized commercial mortgage team that can help with all of your commercial lending needs. 

So, now that you know just who you are dealing with, let’s talk about what happens next. Typically, before you reach out to a lender, bank or insurance company for financial assistance with your commercial venture, you should be clear on just how you are going to meet your future repayment terms and you should be clear on how much you actually need to borrow. These are important things to be clear on because your future commercial mortgage more than likely will be a nonrecourse loan i.e. the bank or lender can take the property in the event of a default (generally if you owe more than the value of the property at time of default, your other assets cannot be seized with a nonrecourse loan.).

Things to consider when Borrowing for Business

Besides knowing how you are going to meet your repayment terms and how much money you actually need to borrow, there are a few other important factors to consider once you’ve set your sight one a few commercial lenders or banks and they include:

1.      Reputation and convenience
2.      Interest rates and available programs

Clearly, you want a mortgage that will meet your needs and without causing you hardship later down the road.

            Refinancing Advice

Speaking of hardship later on, if you already have a mortgage but are interested in changing your business’s financial outlook, then you definitely should consider your possible commercial refinancing options. Remember you have several options that can help your business bottom line. For instance, you may have borrowed for business at a not-so-great interest rate; instead of kicking yourself while you are down why not take advantage of a lower rate or even switch to a fixed rate?  Either of these commercial refinancing options are great ways to reduce total loans cost.  Moreover, there are several other commercial refinancing options out there—all you have to do is ask your lender or broker for more details.
