Important Facts About Commercial Loans

Jul 13, 2008
A commercial loan is a type of loan that includes loans needed to fund a business and also to purchase or finance the construction of a property for commercial use. They are not personal loans so when applying for one, the lender need not go off your personal credit score to qualify. The lender will look at your business and it is the business alone that needs to qualify and prove that it will be reliable in repaying the loan.

I am going to take a few minutes to discuss a few facts about commercial loans that should always be taken into account when looking into a loan. These should all be common knowledge, but most people choose to ignore them or not care about them at all. I will go into each fact in greater detail as I list them.

First, to get approval for a commercial loan, it usually takes about six months to meet the requirements need to obtain financing. After you apply, you should know within a few weeks whether or not you qualify for the loan. To speed up the process, you might find out in advance what documents will be needed in the application process. This will save you a lot of time and headache.

Second, some people believe that you need business counseling or consulting before you apply for a commercial loan. This is definitely not a pre-requisite for obtaining financing from a lender, but most financial institutions offer this service for free. What you do need to do is bring as much information about your business as possible when you meet the possible lenders so they can take some time and analyze your business and come up with a solution that fits your needs.

Third, you might believe or think that rates are cheaper for small businesses. To tell you the truth, there really is no difference between small and large businesses when it comes to securing a commercial loan. In fact, interest rates are negotiable, sometimes bigger companies have more leverage to obtain cheaper financing, but there is not a set rule that says big businesses get cheaper rates.

Fourth, some might believe that it is harder to get a smaller loan amount. This is definitely not true in the least, just like a personal loan the smaller amount of money that a lender gives to an individual or business, the less risk the financial institution incurs.

Now that you know a little bit more about commercial loans, I hope that you can have a better idea of if obtaining this type of financing is for you and if your business can get approved for a loan.
