Commercial real estate loans can be used to buy property for your business to operate out of and to buy income producing commercial properties. How the real estate will be used impacts what kind of commercial mortgage is right for you.

While there are exceptions for borrowers with high net worth or investment properties with high net operating income, most commercial real estate lenders will set the above as minimum borrower requirements.

Unless you are sitting on a pile of cash, the purchase of your buy and hold properties are going to have to be financed through some type of loan. The first few loans for your investment properties are relatively easy to get.

We will call these types of loans “traditional” financing. Just shop around with any bank or mortgage broker and they will likely be able to help you buy that first, second, third and perhaps even fourth rental property.
