With 7 Mixed Use Commercial Loan Programs to choose from, Apartment Loan Store will find the right Mixed Use Property financing for you. We will find the right Mixed Use building loan for you with the lowest rates.
Mixed Use buildings usually have commercial space (retail or office) on the first floor with 5 units or more residential apartments above – thus mixed use. Lenders prefer that the majority of the mixed use buildings income and square footage comes from the residential or multifamily side. This is because it could take over 4 months to re-tenant a commercial space and even longer if the space requires a lot of tenant improvements. On the other hand apartment units can be rented out in less than a week.
Apartment Loan Store’s mixed use financing allows from 25% commercial income and square footage to 75% or more commercial space. Here are our mixed use loan programs:
