What is a commercial property loan?
Commercial property is revenue-earning real estate used for commercial purposes. Commercial property loans, which are mortgages secured by liens on commercial property, are often used to finance the purchase, development, refinancing, and construction of these properties.
Loans for commercial real estate are typically given to companies, which include corporations, developers, limited partnerships, funds, and trusts.
Commercial loans commonly have terms of between five years and twenty years, with the amortization time frequently exceeding the loan duration.
Loan-to-value ratios for commercial loans typically vary from 65% to 80%.
Commercial loans often have periods of five years (or less) to twenty years, with the amortization time frequently exceeding the loan term. The term and duration of the loan have an impact on the interest rate that the lender charges. These conditions might be negotiated, depending on the investor’s creditworthiness. In general, the interest rate rises as the loan repayment period lengthens.
