Investing in commercial real estate can be an excellent way to earn steady income without working a full-time job. People interested in pursuing this option should know they can pursue one of several different loan types to assist with the costs of property management.

Below is a brief outline of possible loan options for commercial real estate.

Loan Types

A bridge loan is a temporary financing option for people who don’t yet qualify for traditional financing. A stable income and a high credit score will make it easier to qualify and move onto a standard loan.

A real estate purchase loan might be an option for people who have a healthy savings account. This loan type also requires a perfect credit score. The lender will list the property itself as collateral when approving this loan. Borrowers will need a current appraisal to determine their interest rate based on loan-to-value ratio.

A hard loan helps to keep homes out of foreclosure by approving funds the property owner needs to pay the mortgage and maintain the property. This loan is more high-risk than other types but may be the only option when foreclosure is on the line.

Joint property owners might consider a joint venture commercial real estate loan if they currently split all expenses and profits. A private lender or investment firm representative can assist prospective buyers with submitting a joint application. Both parties will then be legally liable for repayment.

Tenants of retail outlets and office building who make a long-term commitment to the property may do well with a participating mortgage. When the loan holder makes a payment each month, the lender also receives a pre-determined percentage of business income from sales and rent. Businesses with owners that take out a participating mortgage help to provide stability and reliability to the community.
