commercial and multifamily mortgage loan rates

Commercial Loan Rates


Commercial loan interest rates can move quickly with the market so many investors are constantly trying to stay on top of the most recent interest rates to know if they’re getting a good rate from their local lender or if they should shop around. Additionally, it is useful for investors that are in the process of deciding whether or not to refinance a commercial property they already own.

What Are the Current Commercial Loan Rates?

Currently commercial loan rates can vary between 3.046% and 12.000%+, depending on the loan product. Keep in mind that all commercial loan quotes depend on several underwriting factors including the property and borrower location, loan-to-value (LTV), debt service coverage ratio (DSCR), property usage (investment or owner-occupied), property type, and the borrower’s financial strength. The interest rates below should be considered indicative for properties in primary markets with good LTVs and DSCRs, as well as a strong and experienced sponsor. However, because we offer so many loan programs, actual interest rates may be higher or lower than what is listed below.

What are the Different Types of Commercial Loans?

There are many types of commercial loans available in the United States, and the type of loan that a borrower should consider depends on several factors including investment strategy, loan features, other properties in your portfolio, credit availability for future needs, any pertinent tax considerations, and future economic conditions. The main types of commercial loans that investors use are the following:

Conventional

Conventional mortgages are loans offered by FDIC-insured institutions such as banks or credit unions. They typically require a personal guarantee and an underwriting of the global cash flow of the guarantors, including personal and business tax returns. This loan product can be used for investment or owner-occupied properties.

Hard Money

Hard Money Loans are offered by private investment institutions for the financing of properties that are not “bankable” due to borrower credit issues, property issues, or other reasons. Because of the extremely high interest rates (typically 12%+), we don’t recommend using this product unless the Borrower has significant experience with this type of loan and can refinance out or sell the property within a short, set time frame.

Fannie Mae

Fannie Mae is a non-recourse multifamily loan product offered for experienced investors with properties in primary or secondary markets; tertiary markets only considered on an exception basis and requires a waiver. Click here for apartment loan rates.

Freddie Mac

Freddie Mac is another non-recourse multifamily loan product offered to experienced investors with properties in major markets. The main difference between this product and Fannie is the available structures for its small balance loan program (i.e. hybrid, step-down prepayment penalties). Click here for apartment loan rates.

FHA (HUD)

FHA is a non-recourse mortgage product that is federally guaranteed by the Federal Housing Authority’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It can be used for multifamily properties or various medical facilities such as assisted living or hospitals.. Click here for apartment loan rates.

What Types of Properties Qualify for a Commercial Loan?

In order to qualify for a commercial loan, a property must be zoned appropriately for either business/commercial or multifamily use. This would include the following types of buildings:

  • Office
  • Retail
  • Apartments (5+ units)
  • Industrial/Warehouse
  • Mixed Use (a combination of any of the above properties)
  • Self Storage
  • Hospitality (Hotel/Motel)
  • Specialty Use (including car washes, churches, auto repair, hospitals, or any other property that can only be used for a specific type of business or function).

What is the Difference Between Residential and Commercial Interest Rates?

Residential properties (i.e. single-family dwellings with 4 units or less) usually have much lower interest rates available than commercial properties. Additionally, the term and amortization typically match on a residential loan (i.e. 30/30), whereas the term of a commercial loan is usually shorter than the amortization (i.e. 7/25), causing the borrower to have to refinance or payoff the loan (or sell the property) at or before the end of the loan term.

How Are Interest Rates Calculated?

Commercial interest rates may be calculated a variety of ways depending on the lender’s internal cost of funds. However, the most common way a lender calculates an interest rate is by taking a an index (i.e. LIBOR, treasury, swaps, FHLB, etc.) and adding a “spread” to that index, which is what the lender is making off of the loan. For instance, if the lender is pricing at LIBOR (currently at 2.046 + 2.00%), your interest rate would be 4.046%.
