What Has Changed Recently With Businesses?

Applying for a Commercial Mortgage Loan Do you need extra capital for a business expansion or to leverage equity on your real estate venture? Consider applying for a commercial loan. If this is your first time, it’s best to know what to expect from the process so you can prepare accordingly and get a better chance of being approved. Among the most important things you need to iron out is how you plan to meet the terms for loan repayment. Usually, banks want borrowers to settle their business loans prior to due date. Hence, most of their loan products include a balloon repayment scheme. This scheme requires that form 3, 5 or 10 years (as agreed upon), the borrower pays the principal and interest on his 30-year mortgage at the specified interest rate, and the rest will be paid off in a single balloon payment. A lot of borrowers don’t save enough within such a short period, so either they should requalify for their loan or refinance it by the end of the balloon term. If your business has any cash flow issues in the years right before the balloon term, the lender may increase the interest rate or you may not get any loan. In a case like this, you may be declined for financing altogether and your property just might get foreclosed.

There are other risks with a balloon loan too. If your business is deemed risky by the time the balloon is due, the lender may decide to back out of refinancing. Or they could decide their portfolio has too many loans in your industry and deny any refinancing with your business in the future.

Non-bank lenders are usually more liberal with their credit requirements for commercial loans. There are those that provide long-term loans without requiring the early balloon repayment. But interest rates will surely be higher because of the bigger risk they take. How much you can borrow is the second most important piece of information you need to know before you apply for a commercial mortgage loan. Most banks do not allow second mortgages, so you have to go into the loan process planning to borrow enough to cover your current business needs, or to adequately leverage your real estate investments. For a conventional acquisition loan where borrower buys a new property, banks usually require a 20-25% down payment. So if you were getting a $500,000 acquisition, you should make a down payment of around $100,000 – $125,000. Sometimes, a non-traditional loan will allow a smaller down payment, increasing the loan to value (LTV) ratio at 85-90%. Such loans typically come from direct business lenders or commercial investors instead of banks.
