OWN IT! A 100% Financing Commercial Real Estate Loan Program

A 100% financing commercial real estate loan program designed for business owners meeting the following considerations:

  1. Are currently renting the property where the business operates
  2. Are interested in owning the property
  3. Lack the 30% down payment required by banks for commercial real estate loans

This loan program allows the applicants to substitute paying rent with ownership in the property. The lender finances 100% of a commercial property’s appraised value. The loan amount can go up to 120% of the appraised value if the applicant also needs to finance the closing costs.

The lender will take a first position on the real estate and the business assets, even if it needs to refinance an existing loan in the business’ assets.
