When applying for a commercial real estate loan, there are several reasons why the loan may be rejected. Here are the top 10 reasons why a commercial real estate loan may be denied:

  1. Insufficient credit history or low credit score: Lenders will typically check the credit history of the borrower and co-borrowers, and a low credit score can be a red flag.

CRE Vacancy Issues - Bridge Lending Can Help!

Posted by Jennifer Foster on Feb 7, 2020 4:08:54 PM

Vacant buildings have become a common issue in today's economy and an all too familiar reason for loan declines by traditional banks.

Vacant properties can also be linked to higher crime rates such as squatting, theft, and arson. When you are the owner of said buildings you don't want to be stuck in a spot where you watch your property decrease in value and lose money in the process, all because you can't obtain financing needed to get new tenants.

Unlike a traditional loan, a bridge loan can step in immediately, bridging the gap between vacancies and fully occupied time frames!
