There are a variety of reasons a business or commercial real estate owner may look to refinance their property. Some may be looking to refinance their real estate to help reduce a debt strain that their current mortgage may be causing their business and operations. Others may be looking to extend a term of their mortgage – particularly commercial real estate owners that currently have a bridge loan or hard money loan that will soon be up for renewal or payoff. And then there are others that have commercial real estate with substantial value (more than their current mortgage balance) that is simply looking to tap into the real estate’s equity to use for other business purposes (general operating capital, build-outs, tenant improvements). In this article, we will explore some of the commercial mortgage refinancing options.
