Qualifying For A Commercial Loan Is Easier Than You Think

Jun 14, 2008
Are you in the market for a commercial loan? A commercial loan is a tool that opens up different opportunities to develop an individual's investment portfolio. If you are a smart investor, you will look for opportunities to have your money work for you and give you additional income through property rentals, hotels, commercial office space, etc.

If you are a beginner, you need not worry. You can start small by leasing an apartment complex in or close to your neighborhood. This is an easier option for beginners since you are close to the property and already familiar with the area. Once you have mastered the art of owning and managing your own rental property, you will be much more prepared and qualified to invest in properties that are outside of your area or even outside the state. Some investors even choose to purchase rental properties that are outside the country.

Qualifying for a business or commercial loan is easier than one might think. Even though housing prices have increased steadily over the last few years, people are still pulling out money to invest in real estate. You need to be careful though, some banks are becoming stingier and much more careful of whom they will lend to and have strict pre-requisites for applicants.

When you begin the loan process, your broker will provide you with an estimate of the value of the asset that you wish to obtain a commercial loan for. Before a loan is approved, the bank or lender will demand more information about the investment property. They will wish to know where the property is located, the nature of the property, and the amount of revenues generated over the last two years. They will also want to know how the property is going to be used. A lot of people, who purchase properties as an investment, do so dishonestly. The lenders are cracking down on this a lot lately.

If you are detailed and comprehensive with the information that you provide the lender, your chances will greatly increase that the commercial loan will be approved.

There are some things that you can do to in advance before asking for money from a bank or lender. Here are just a few of these,

- You must have a clean credit record
- Keep all your asset information up to date and current
- Shop around on lending rates
- Learn how to negotiate
- Make sure that you do a background check on any property that you are interested in.
- Create and have a business plan readily available

You have an opportunity of generating a large amount of passive income by investing in real estate. Commercial loans are readily available for individuals such as yourself if seek them out. As an investor seeking to expand a portfolio, now is the time to invest.
