FAQ about Financing Distressed Commercial Real EstateObtaining financing for distressed commercial real estate can be challenging. Even if the commercial property is a good bargain, financing your distressed commercial real estate maybe limited.

Purchasing Distressed Commercial Real Estate

A distressed asset has a negative or poor cash flow; otherwise, it wouldn’t be classified as “distressed”.

Q.) How will lenders be able to lend if a commercial real estate property isn’t cash flowing?

A.) A private money or commercial hard money lender will lend on distressed commercial real estate with a lower loan to value or also include cross-collateralizating upon your other real estate investments or have two other guarantors qualify for the loan.  

Q.) Do I need good credit and cash reserves to be qualified for purchasing distressed commercial real estate?

A.)  It depends on the property type you are purchasing, for example, a distressed marina will require good credit, cross-collateralization and cash reserves. Example 2) A distressed medical building will not require cross-collateralization.

Q.) What property types does your company finance?

A.) First of all, we are not a direct commercial hard money or private money lender. We do not charge upfront broker fees for our alternative lending programs, we actually refer you to a reputable commercial lender.  The property types we typically finance are:

Medical Buildings

If you’re in pre-foreclosure or foreclosure status on your commercial real estate loan, we may be able to help you.

Q.) How can you help me if I am in foreclosure or pre-foreclosure status with my current commercial real estate loan?

A.) We would first provide you with a free consultation to discuss whether or not we may be able to help you exit out of your current pre-foreclosure or foreclosure situation.  This all depends if your current lender will accept a short pay off, in most cases, the lender will take a short pay off only if you have negative equity.

Q.) I have bad credit, can you still help me get financed for a commercial real estate loan?

A.) If you are currently late on your home loan and late on your commercial real estate loan, your chances of obtaining a new commercial real estate loan are restricted.
