Commercial Loans

If you own a business and lease its premises, consider buying a building for the business.  Many of our self-employed clients retire at the end of their career and discover that although their business is valuable, their building is even more valuable.  Great loan programs are available that require only 10% down. 


Commercial and industrial buildings are also great rental properties, as are 5+ unit appartment buildings.  The depreciation tax benefit is quite attractive and there are special tactics to maximize it.  You can even defer capital gains through 1031 exchanges. 


The loan options for these types of buildings get very complex.  We understand them through and through and will help you through it.  Often you’ll save as much with the right structure as you will with the best rate.  The wrong structure can incur very high costs downstream.
