Commercial Real Estate Funding
If you’re new to commercial real estate financing, you’ll want to get a firm understanding of the differences between a residential and commercial mortgage loan. Residential real estate uses a debt-to-income formula for judging your ability to repay a loan while commercial real estate is based on the debt coverage service ratio formula to qualify. This means that to qualify for a commercial loan, you’ll have to know what your projected return on investment (ROI) will be when making a commercial property purchase or refinance.
The cash flow generated from your commercial real estate property will be one of the factors in determining both the value of the property as well as its future return. The type and amount of your commercial loan is also dependent on other factors, including your business and personal credit history, your net worth or financial strength, the type of property and its overall condition, its cash flow, the geographical location of the property, and the general economic outlook of the local market. The first step to purchasing or refinancing your commercial property is to know exactly how you’ll use the property. What type of property will you acquire? How will the property be used to improve your cash flow and financial goals? How long will you hold the property? Will you be an owner, tenant or just an investor? Do you have an exit strategy? These are all questions you’ll want to think about before applying for your commercial financing. After you’ve established the market need and use for the property, you’ll also want to analyze its current and future cash flow that will contribute to your ROI. So give us a call today and we’ll help you get started and answer any other questions you may have.
Determining Your Commercial Mortgage Interest Rate
Loan Summary Guide
Use this guide to save time. A well organized loan summary should include the following essential information
Executive Summary - a concise but thorough overview that includes the following: Description of the property - and its estimated or appraised value (as is value), disposition value (3, 6 or 9 month sale) or fire sale value, future value (construction only), square footage and number of units. Loan Amount and Use of Funds - debt owed, liens on the property, if cash out is needed Date of purchase and price - how much cash was invested by the owner(s). Debt Service - how will the owner(s) make monthly payments. Will the property produce income or will the owner(s) require interest reserve? Loan Term Requested - typical terms for private money is normally 2 to 3 years with available extensions. Payments are interest only. Borrowers will need to ask about long term financing. Exit Strategy - will the property be sold, refinance or other? Equity- 65% LTV is the norm. Higher LTV's up to 80% may be possible. This pertains to purchases and refinances on income producing commercial properties. Property owners must have a minimum of 20% equity in their projects. Secondary financing maybe allowed in certain cases. The Story - The owner must tell the story of why he/she want the loan and provide hard and soft costs. Tell of any negative situations. Here is the time to bring out any issues. Do not wait for the investor to find out problems during the due diligence process. This could be a deal breaker. Color Photos of the property or an appraisal if available. Operating income (Profit and Loss Statement) last two years, summary of lease agreements, rent rolls, operation statement from the business. The1003 Loan Application with all fields completed, current credit report 3 months old or less or Personal Financial Statement of the owner, borrower or guarantor. With all the information above submitted, we can prepare our submission report for the lender’s review. Based on a Term Sheet or Letter of Intent (LOI) we will set up a conference call with all parties within 24 hours between borrower and lender to clarify any issues that may be stated in the LOI. If there is a basis to move forward by means of executing the LOI, the due diligence and closing process begin. Due diligence and closing escrow takes approximately 30 to 45 days.
Understandably, one of the first questions we’re asked from potential commercial borrowers is “What will my interest rate be?” But the final interest rate on your new loan may be based on your past credit history, the loan-to-value (LTV) of the property, net worth and other risk components associated with the deal. Before we can provide a valid financial quote we’ll need to work together to build a suitable package for the lender or investor to underwrite. The final rates and terms you receive will be based largely on you – the business owner. In addition to interest rates there are other factors you should consider if your goal is to obtain the best overall financial package and return on your property as an investment. For example, the terms of a mortgage loan can be just as important as the interest rate. Any pre-payment penalties could also affect the overall cost of your mortgage should you wish to sell or refinance the property. So it’s wise to carefully review the covenants that the lender required on the loan. Now that you understand how commercial rates differ from residential rates, this is the perfect time to contact us.
