Types of Commercial Property Loans in Massachusetts
There are five primary types of commercial real estate loans you can use to achieve your goals, depending on your business's needs and qualifications. Compare commercial property loans in Massachusetts below:
SBA loans: Small Business Administration (SBA) offers real estate loan programs to expand, acquire or renovate a property
. SBA 504 loans and SBA 7(a) loans are available to business owners that intend to occupy the property.
Conventional Mortgage loans: Secured by a mortgage on a commercial property. Mortgage loans usually have an amortization schedule and a repayment term of five years or more. They are not available for short-term financing needs.
Hard money loans: These loans are issued by individuals and private companies — not traditional lenders like banks. Hard money loans, also called bridge loans, are a form of short-term financing. They are typically used by real estate investors and have a term that lasts between three and 36 months.
Bridge loans: As short-term commercial real estate loans, bridge loans have repayment terms typically ranging from six months to three years.
Owner financing: Owner financing allows buyers — most of which are real estate investors — to pay a seller directly when purchasing a home. This arrangement can provide the buyer with less strict eligibility requirements.
Real Estate Loan Requirements
To get a commercial real estate loan in Massachusetts, lenders usually require that your business occupy at least 51% of the building you plan on purchasing or renovating.
You will have to decide on the type of loan you need — depending on the property and business — and focalize your lender options.
A lender will consider requirements pertaining to your personal finances, business finances, and property characteristics before granting a commercial property loan to your small business.
