Permanent Commercial Real Estate Loans

A permanent loan may sound like a long-term commitment, but that’s because most are amortized over more extended periods of time – up to 30 years. Although not entirely permanent, this type of loan can be perfect for commercial real estate businesses embarking on new projects or renovating current projects.

Definition of a Permanent Loan?

Permanent financing covers terms of five years or more and will either be fully or partially amortized through periodic mortgage payments.

How Does A Permanent Loan Work?

Permanent commercial real estate loans are often issued to developers who have already built a project. Most developers take out a bridge loan to fund the initial start of a project, but upon completion, this loan is then transitioned into a permanent loan.

Types of Commercial Real Estate Loans

Permanent Loan: A long-term financing option that’s amortized up to 30 years. This type of loan typically carries lower interest rates.

Construction Loan: A short-term loan option allows a developer to build or renovate a business structure.

Bridge Loan: Another short-term option that’s often used to pay off a current mortgage is a bridge loan. This frees up equity to roll over into a new property. Once the property is sold, the proceeds are used to pay off the loan.

Permanent Vs. Short Term Financing

Permanent Financing

  • Carry loan terms of 5 years or greater
  • Typically used to purchase fixed assets
  • Borrowers can pay monthly

Short-Term Financing

  • Must be paid within a year
  • Usually paid off in one lump sum
  • Funds are used to fund daily operations and short-term projects

TIP: In addition to commercial real estate, a permanent loan can also be used to purchase fixed long-term assets such as machinery or equipment.
