Specialized Business Loan and Commercial Mortgage Situations

Nov 6, 2007
Two of the most specialized business financing and commercial real estate loan situations involve golf course financing and funeral home financing. These two complex business loan scenarios will be used to illustrate viable commercial mortgage strategies.

Funeral home loans and golf course loans involve difficulties not found in common business loan situations. A commercial loan to buy a business for a golf course or funeral home is among the most difficult business financing scenarios, and refinancing will probably be more difficult than the initial commercial mortgage purchase loan for buying the business.

Fewer Business Lenders - Funeral Home and Golf Course Financing

There has been a significant reduction in local and regional banks offering business loan programs for funeral home financing and golf course financing. This of course compounds the already difficult commercial loan environment for funeral homes and golf courses due to fewer commercial lenders which are willing to provide reasonable commercial mortgage terms.

Buy a Business - Business Opportunity Financing

Business financing to buy a business opportunity is a special business loan variation in which commercial property is not purchased. The land and buildings in such a situation are typically leased for ten years or more. Similar to a conventional mortgage to buy a golf course or funeral home, competitive business opportunity financing is not easy to find.

Business Loan Terms to Avoid - Funeral Home and Golf Course Loans

It is critical to avoid undesirable business loan terms when refinancing or buying a funeral home or golf course business. Particularly important terms involve the percentage of value for the commercial mortgage and the length of the commercial loan. Regional and local banks will frequently offer short-term business financing instead of a longer-term commercial loan.

Stated Income Commercial Mortgage Difficulties

Although a stated income commercial loan has a certain number of benefits in specific circumstances, the use of stated income business financing is not recommended for a funeral home loan or golf course loan. A major limitation of a stated income commercial mortgage is the maximum business loan possible. A further limitation is the low percentage of value for stated income commercial financing involving either golf course financing or funeral home financing.

Business Value and Commercial Real Estate Value for a Business Loan

For golf course loans and funeral home loans, the commercial real estate loan value is often less than the business value. This is particularly true with a funeral home appraisal. The problem with this disparity is that many business lenders will provide a business loan that includes only the commercial mortgage loan value, and this will produce significantly reduced business financing.

Funeral Home and Golf Course Financing - Avoid Excessive Business Loan Fees

Commercial borrowers should expect some legitimate and reasonable commercial mortgage fees during the initial commercial loan process. There are several commercial lenders that continue to take advantage of the severe lack of business loan choices for purchasing, building and refinancing a golf course or funeral home. One of the particularly unacceptable tactics is to charge exorbitant fees ($25,000 is not unusual) whether or not the business financing is successfully completed.

Commercial Lender Options for Funeral Home Loans and Golf Course Loans

As mentioned earlier, the supply of acceptable business lenders for this kind of business financing has been reduced. An agreeable commercial mortgage for a golf course loan or a funeral home loan will depend upon a wise lender choice.

A business borrower must be ready for the restricted number of qualified lenders for a golf course and funeral home commercial loan to buy a business. It is essential to find a lender with the resources to complete the complicated commercial mortgage process in a timely manner and concurrently avoid the business loan difficulties previously described.

Additional Business Finance and Commercial Mortgage Considerations

Even though the potential business loan problems described in this article are substantial, there are additional commercial mortgage difficulties which should be anticipated and avoided. Borrowers should plan to have early and extensive discussions with a business financing expert before proceeding with either purchase or refinancing efforts involving specialized real estate investment property such as golf courses or funeral homes.
