Questions to Ask Your Commercial Mortgage Lender

During a meeting with your commercial real estate lender, make sure you ask the following questions: 

  • What loan products do you offer? 

You might already know the type of loan you want, but it’s always good to ask what’s available. It may be that another type of commercial real estate financing solution would be better for your needs. Also, remember that you may need other loans in the future, and it’s helpful to work with the same commercial mortgage lender as much as possible, since they’ll know you and your situation. 

  • Do you know a lot about my market?

Not all commercial real estate is the same, as you well know. It’s helpful to work with a lender that really knows your market and all its ins and outs. This way, you know you’re getting not only the right financing solutions for your needs, but also can get some expert insight as well. 

  • What’s the typical loan size you provide?

It’s important to work with a lender that provides loans in the amounts you need regularly. You never want to feel like you’re the “guinea pig” for a lender, such as by providing you a significantly larger loan than they’ve ever financed. Make sure the lender has experience with the loan amount you’re looking for. 

  • How long does closing take on average?

If you’re looking at investing in commercial real estate, you’ll need to know about how long it takes to close on a loan with the commercial mortgage lender. Knowing what to expect can help you with planning. Obviously timelines differ for each situation, but get a good average so you know what to expect.

  • What are the borrowing requirements?

All lenders have different requirements. Ask what qualifications you need for the loan so you can prepare.

Choosing the Right Commercial Real Estate Lender

Obviously it’s important to choose the right lender for your needs. The lender you choose has a big impact on the overall experience and the quality of financing you receive. Make sure you research your lender thoroughly before making a choice.
