From the Experts at

This is what the lenders of money are saying:

  • Commercial construction loans for condominiums, condo-conversions or residential home developments will be very tough in this unstable market. There is a new program with funds available but only the strongest of these deals have a chance to get funded. Visit
  • Financing for gas stations and restaurant purchases and start-ups will be tough.
  • Funds are still readily available for multi-tenant properties like apartment buildings, office buildings, strip centers, shopping malls, mini storages, etc. Existing income producing properties with a verifiable track record of cash flow are the preferred property types right now for most lenders.
  • Unsecured Business and Personal Lines of Credit are getting tougher to approve. Absolute minimum credit scores (all 3 bureaus) are 700+. Absolute minimum time in business is 2 years. But to secure amounts above $100,000, your prospect better have mid-700’s or higher scores and be in business a lot longer than 2 years. Also, business owners who are Realtors, real estate investors, contractors or are in any other business where the industry is considered “depressed” – may get denied even with excellent personal credit unless they are willing to document income with tax returns.
