Commercial Mortgage Rate Trends in 2020

At the start of 2020 the market outlook did not indicate any significant factors that would cause major trouble in the commercial mortgage market. According to data from Mortgage Bankers Association, commercial mortgage originators expected 2020 to be a great year in the market. About 64 percent of the top commercial real estate firms polled were under the impression that commercial mortgage loan originations would increase this year. Furthermore, 16 percent expected an overall increase of at least 5 percent or more. Moreover, over 40 percent of the firms polled anticipated an increase of over 5 percent in their own firm’s commercial mortgage lending in 2020. In January 2020, MBA released its latest data demonstrating that multifamily and commercial mortgage lenders were expected to close over $680 billion of commercial mortgage loans this year, a 9 percent increase from 2019's record volume of $628 billion. The data indicated that commercial mortgage lenders had remained enthusiastic about making loans. All of the surveyed mortgage originators maintained that just like last year, in 2020 lenders will have a strong appetite to make new commercial mortgage loans. In addition, the vast majority of originators polled believed that borrowers in 2020 will have a strong appetite to take out commercial mortgage loans. Additionally, commercial mortgage professionals expected there to be greater upward pressure on commercial mortgage interest rates. These commercial mortgage rates were expected to continue to be competitive throughout 2020. However, with the current outbreak of Covid-19, the overall economy has been in flux. The stock market has crashed and commercial mortgage interest rates have been severely impacted. Huge metros such as New York have all but shut down much economic activity and entertainment. In this unsteady climate, many investors are scared to purchase commercial real estate and to take out commercial mortgages and apartment loans. Additionally, the oil industry has taken a big hit. Not only are people traveling less due to the pandemic, foreign countries like China and Russia are involved in a huge price war which is driving the price of oil way down. Experts are hopeful that as the weather warms up and public health policy learns how to handle this pandemic, the economy should revert back to its pre-virus strength.

What Happened with Commercial Mortgage Rates in 2019

Looking back at 2019, the commercial real estate market throughout the country pretty much kept pace with that of 2018. In the final year of the decade we saw the longest economic recovery ever recorded in this country continue, and this helped push the commercial real estate industry forward as well. Due to factors such as positive GDP growth and unemployment below the average rate, 2019 saw the broad stock market up almost 30% for the year. Many investors were of the opinion that the Feds would raise interest rates in 2019. However, interest rates were lowered three separate times throughout the year. Lowered interest rates helped to propagate even more interest in the commercial real estate sector. With regards to commercial mortgage origination, the most recent information has far exceeded expectations. Mortgage Bankers Association reported that the 2018 commercial mortgage volume came in at about $339 billion, an increase of 18.9% from 2017. While the actual 2019 numbers are not yet available experts estimate that due to solid fundamentals, low interest rates and heightened demand for commercial real estate investments, the total volume of commercial mortgage loans last year was just under $370 billion.

    Apartment building loan rates are among the best in the commercial mortgage industry. When lenders set the rates for these types of loans, they are encouraged by the short and long term prospects of the rental housing markets. Due to the lower risk of apartment buildings as an investment class, the rates are very low right now. Of course, the type of loan is only one factor when it comes to determining risk. The borrower’s credit worthiness, property location and property condition and many other factors are analyzed. For more information on what commercial mortgage lenders look for in determining the rate you receive, please see our blog article How to Qualify for the Best Commercial Mortgage Rate.

  • New Trump Administration Tax Overhaul Benefits Commercial Real Estate

    The recent GOP sponsored tax plan continues to offer commercial real estate investors benefits over investors who invest in other asset classes. Congress has voted to maintain 1031 exchanges, the section of the tax code that allows investors to sell their property and avoid paying capital gains, so long as the investor reinvests the proceeds in another similar real estate investment. Investors in commercial real estate may continue to defer all capital gains by continuously selling and buying new, more valuable property. The new tax law has eliminated the same benefit for investors who invest in other investments such as, art, antique cars, etc. In addition, commercial real estate investors received an added bonus – the estate tax exemption for couples was just doubled to $22.4 million. In effect, these investors can keep trading up to more expensive properties, all the while avoiding capital gains taxes, and then continue to avoid taxes upon their deaths, so their heirs can inherit these properties tax free. Another huge benefit for commercial real estate investors is that the property real estate taxes paid during their years of ownership will still be deductible as a business expense – compare that to the $10,000 maximum deduction for homeowners! Homeowners are limited in the new tax law to a total of $10,000 for ALL state and local taxes, including real estate taxes. Commercial property owners can continue to deduct the full amount of their real estate taxes as a legitimate business expense. The new tax law is a boon for investors in commercial real estate.

Whether you are purchasing or refinancing, we have the right solutions available. We will entertain loan requests of all sizes, beginning at $1,000,000.


    We offer long term fixed rates at extremely competitive rates.   Our underwriting is very flexible and we are able to approve commercial real estate loans that many other lenders are unable to approve.  For example, we have specific programs for borrowers with less than perfect credit and those who might need a stated income loan. The bottom line is that we have a specific program for just about every situation. We’ve helped hundreds of customers with their loan requests.  Our personal attention and extensive array of commercial mortgage programs are the hallmark of our success.  We never charge an application fee and we offer written pre-approvals within 24 hours of receiving a completed application.


    If you have contacted other commercial mortgage lenders and been disappointed by their lack of personal service, you’ve come to right place.  We believe in working on all of the details necessary to get your loan approved at the very best rates and terms available in the market.


    Our diverse menu of commercial real estate loan options allows us to finance all types of commercial and investment properties nationwide.  We finance multi-tenant properties such as apartment buildings, retail shopping centers, office buildings and warehouse/industrial properties, as well as single tenant and special use properties such as credit lease properties, restaurants, gas stations and motels.  We lend on investor properties (those rented to others), as well as owner-occupied or owner-user properties which are owned and used for the owner’s business. 


    The loan-to-value ratio on a typical apartment building loan will be between 75% - 80% and we offer fixed rates for up to 30 years.  The loan-to-value ratio on a typical commercial mortgage loan will be 70% - 75% with terms up to 25 years.  On owner occupied properties we will often lend up to 90% and in some cases (medical offices, for example) we will lend up to 100% of the value of the property.


    There are many property types that are often hard to finance with your local bank.  These include very specialized single use properties such as theaters, bowling alleys and skating rinks.  We are actively and aggressively lending on these properties.  We strongly support local businesses and are anxious to help you grow your business.  For business owners, we will also consider working capital and accounts receivable financing.  Again, we are committed to small business owners!


    Whether you are a large developer/property owner or an owner of just one property, we want to be your source for your commercial mortgage loan.  Over the past 30 years we have helped hundreds and hundreds of people purchase and refinance their commercial properties.  Some of our customers come back time and time again (and refer their friends) to take advantage of our superior service, great rates and knowledge of the market.  Borrowing can be confusing – let us show you how we can help.
