One of the most important benefits of going with a commercial mortgage is that you retain total ownership over your business. Instead of selling an interest or raising funds you maintain complete control. Your success is entirely your own to keep. You've worked hard to get your business in a situation where a commercial mortgage makes sense for you. Don't risk the future of your company by selling interest, especially when commercial loans help you maintain that control.
Additionally, when you own your own property or building you gain the advantages of appreciation on that property. Much like a traditional residential mortgage your initial investment could see positive gains on return. The money received from the appreciation of your property can be used for further expansion, research and development, advertising or in any other way that you as the business owner sees fit. This advantage alone makes commercial property investment worth it. Our commercial lending specialists can help craft a plan for you that shows which properties are best for your companies situation. Together you can find the right solution to grow your business.
Another great advantage of owning your own business property is improved cash flow. With a minimal up-front payment you can design a repayment schedule that fits your needs perfectly. This flexibility allows you to keep your money longer allowing you to spend it where you see fit. Your repayment schedule will be determined by the kind of property as well as the needs of your company. We can help you determine the repayment schedule that works best for your situation.
When owning your own commercial property you’ll also be the beneficiary of tax breaks. Interest paid on your commercial mortgage is tax deductible as well as any maintanence or repairs that you make to the property.
Not only can you write-off interest paid on your property you can also claim a depreciation deduction. This unique concept allows business owners to deduct the amount your property has depreciated by in the last year. Depending on your property your depreciation deduction can sometimes range in the tens of thousands of dollars. This advantage to commercial properties can save you money over time.
A commercial loan differs from a residential mortgage in that the collateral used to secure a commercial loan is a commercial building or business real estate instead of a residential property. What’s more is commercial mortgages are generally assumed by a business entity instead of an individual borrower. As a result of this, assessing and securing a commercial mortgage is somewhat more complicated than a residential mortgage. A complex process involving many factors plays into determining creditworthiness for a business.
At The Finance Group it’s our privilege to guide you through this new and exciting process. Two of the most important aspects of a commercial mortgage to keep in mind are interest rate and loan repayment schedule.
Most commercial loans offered today are fixed. This means you have the security of knowing that if interest rates were to increase you wouldn’t be stuck making higher monthly payments. Conversely some borrowers are opting for a variable interest rate to take advantage of lower initial payments. However, a loan of this nature runs the risk of having interest rates increase and thus increasing your monthly payment.
Unlike residential mortgage loans, most commercial loans require a balloon payment at some point during the loan term. This means that after a given amount of time making small monthly repayments, the borrower would be required to make a large final payment consisting of the remainder of the loan. Loan Repayment Schedules which call for a longer time to repay the loan typically have higher interest rates.

Qualification for a commercial mortgage depends largely on the type of property or building that is being applied for. For a more in-depth look at qualifying commercial properties please check out our commercial loan type page.
Despite some specifics on certain properties there are general criteria for qualification. As a business owner it is important for you to be able to show that your company has an appropriate debt to cash ratio. Even a company with a poor credit rating can still receive a commercial mortgage if the primary owner can show good personal credit as well as sufficient liquid assets.
Additionally, your company will need to show a continued and stable pattern of profitability as well as plans for future growth. This might include, but not limited to, copies of your business plan, earning projections and long-term business goals.
