How to Find a Commercial Lender that Specializes in your Needs

Many of our applicants ask why they should do businesses with Select Commercial and not their local bank. Select Commercial is a commercial mortgage banker with access to capital from many different sources including Wall Street investment banks, insurance companies, national commercial banks, local savings institutions and many others. Accordingly, we are able to provide many different loan programs to meet in individual borrower’s needs. Whereas a local bank has a specific set of lending guidelines, we are not limited to any one institution.

Some examples include:

Cash-Out Refinances – These days, we see a large number of requests from borrowers seeking to refinance their commercial properties and obtain cash out for other purposes, including reinvestment. Many local banks are very hesitant to allow these cash out refinances. Borrowers seeking cash out from their properties are often turned away. We have no hesitation making cash out refinances to commercial property owners. Just this week, Select Commercial provided a loan to a small property owner in which he took over $1 million of cash out from his property.

Property Types – Select Commercial lends on all types of commercial and apartment properties. We have programs for owner occupied properties as well as investor occupied properties. We have years of experience lending on specialty properties such as motels, gas stations, restaurants and many other property types traditionally shunned by other commercial lenders. No one single bank can possibly satisfy all of these requests.

Loan Terms – Many, if not all, banks like to limit their fixed-rate loans to five-year terms as they do not want to take on unnecessary long-term credit risk. At Select Commercial, we often make fixed-rate loans for 10, 15, 20, and even 30 years. We also offer longer term amortizations than most local banks.

Borrower Credit – Most banks require that their borrowers have perfect or excellent credit in order to qualify. In real life, borrowers often have minor blemishes or events that have caused a temporary setback. We are willing to listen to the story and lend despite past problems. As long as a borrower demonstrates that the problems have been corrected, we are willing to lend when other lenders are not.

Rates – Local bank’s rates are often high as they need to pay for deposits and to maintain their branches. By accessing the capital markets, we are often able to provide much more competitive pricing than these local institutions. Our Wall Street investment banks and insurance companies provide pricing on a national level and not based on any one local market.

Recourse – Almost every single local bank will require that a borrower sign the loan personally. Many borrowers do not wish to put their personal assets on the line for a commercial real estate investment. Very often, our investors will not require personal guarantees. This is a very important issue should not be overlooked.

Certainty of Closing – We have seen many examples of banks making promises, and then after months of processing, their loan committees change the terms of the loan approval. This often results in the borrower canceling or delaying the closing. We are proud of our reputation for delivering approvals on the same terms as originally quoted, and timely closings.

Application Fees – Most banks will collect an application fee in order to review your application. This fee is often nonrefundable even if you do not accept the terms the bank proposes. At Select Commercial, our application process is without cost or obligation. We will review your information, and if we like the transaction, we will issue a written letter of intent spelling out the terms of the approval upfront. We do not collect an application fee for this service. Should you choose not to proceed with our loan approval, you may cancel without cost or obligation.

It Looks Like 2014 Will Be Another Strong Year for TX Commercial Real Estate Loans

It looks like 2014 will be another strong year for TX commercial real estate loans. Texas continues to show strong growth for commercial real estate developers and investors.  “I think the market is amazing,” said Segal, CEO of Houston-based Boxer Property, which owns almost 6 million square feet of North Texas office space. “I hope to make many more acquisitions in the Dallas Fort Worth area in 2014, if the deals persist,” Segal says. “It’s getting harder all over the metroplex.”

Texas’ booming economy has pushed Dallas-Fort Worth’s commercial real estate market to the highest point in almost two decades.

Office, retail and industrial vacancies are below where they were at before the recession. “We’ve never been as positive about a year as we are about 2014,” said Denton Walker, Trammell Crow senior managing director. “We think 2014 will be a breakout year for us in retail, office and industrial real estate.”

Growth in North Texas seems to be almost a certainty, because nearly 3 million square feet of office real estate in Dallas-Fort Worth was obtained in 2013, according to Jones Lang LaSalle’s end-of-year research.

Dallas-Fort Worth had a net job growth of 96,000 positions year-over-year, which coupled with the lack of new construction in the market has led to a much healthier market, Daryl Mullin, senior vice president of Jones Lang LaSalle told the Dallas Business Journal.

Investors looking for Apartment Building Loans, Commercial Mortgages and Business Real Estate Loans should look no further than Select Commercial. They offer loan quotes within 24 hours with NO cost, NO obligation, and NO upfront application fees. They can be reached at 877-548-9454 or you can fill out a Free Loan Request.

Commercial Mortgage Rates on the Rise – Lock in Today

April 2nd, 2013

Reality Today reports commercial mortgage rates on the rise. With commercial mortgage rates on the rise, many business owners are looking to refinance. The good news is that mortgage rates are still near historic lows, but are on the rise. While Reality Today is referring to residential mortgage rates and not commercial mortgage rates, there is still a direct correlation between the two. According to the firm, the average rate for a 30 year fixed rate rose to 3.57% the week of March 28th, 2013. That is from 3.54% the week prior and from 3.31% in November, which was the lowest since 1971.

15 year rates climbed last week to 2.76% from 2.72% the week prior. The record low of 2.63% was reached in November.

While rates are off the lows of November 2012, they are still very attractive from a historical perspective. Also, with the S&P 500 reaching its all-time high, it appears the economy is getting back on track, pointing to rates going higher. So if you missed refinancing your commercial mortgage at these great rates, this may be your last chance before commercial mortgage rates continue their upward trend.

How to Qualify for the Best Commercial Mortgage Rate

I think it’s safe to say that anyone interested in securing a commercial mortgage loan wants to get the best commercial mortgage rate possible. However, you may be surprised to learn all the different factors that determine what rate you will receive on your commercial mortgage request. For many consumer loans, a lender will mainly look at your credit score. For example: if you’re buying a new car, the dealership will pull your credit and if your credit is excellent, you will most likely receive their lowest rate. When it comes to getting the lowest commercial mortgage rate available, there are many things considered.  Of course, the credit score of the borrower is also considered in securing a commercial mortgage loan and is very important. However, there are many other factors lenders consider, including:

  • Property location – Properties in large metropolitan areas are considered lower risk
  • Good quality tenants – A Domino’s Pizza tenant is considered better than a generic pizzeria
  • Do the majority of tenants have long term leases?
  • Is there a good history of stabilized occupancy?
  • Has lease turnover been kept to a minimum?
  • Is the property in good condition?
  • Lower leverage is better – Is your loan to value 80% or 50%?
  • How is borrower’s credit rating?
  • What is the borrower’s net worth?
  • What is the borrower’s cash liquidity?
  • Does the borrower have experience managing property?

As you can see from this list, there are many factors to be considered when it comes to determining what commercial mortgage rate is given.

Contacting a good commercial mortgage broker who deals with many different lenders can also help you get a good rate. A good commercial mortgage broker will deal with many active lenders, and will have many lenders to choose from, increasing the chances that they will have a lender that specializes in the type of loan that you need.  Selectcommercial.com has a large portfolio of lenders who specialize in the following types of loans:

  • Apartment Building Loans (up to 80%)
  • SBA Mortgage Loans (up to 90%)
  • Owner occupied business real estate loans (up to 90%)
  • Medical practice acquisition loans (up to 100%)
  • Commercial mortgage loans
