We're big on small balance commercial real estate loans 

Small business owners and investors utilize small commercial properties nationwide to support and operate their businesses.  We believe strongly in this type of asset and have developed financing solutions for commercial real estate loans designed specifically to help entrepreneurs achieve their vision of real estate ownership. Whether you are a seasoned commercial business owner or thinking about purchasing your first small commercial real estate property, it's important you understand how the type of property financed can affect the commercial loan terms. From a lender's perspective, commercial buildings with more general use capacity like retail, warehouse or office space are easier to finance than properties built for a specific purpose (i.e., bowling alley, bank or manufacturing plant) because they have an inherently lower risk due to a higher market demand from investors.  

Lenders often avoid financing specific use properties or require a lower LTV (e.g., higher down payment) on them to offset their higher risk profile. At Express Mortgage Lending, Inc, we provide loans for a wide variety of commercial properties, including:


  •  Office Buildings

  •  Retail Stores

  •  Warehouses

  •  Self-Storage Buildings

  •  Automotive Repair Shops

While we do provide investment property financing for up to $5 million on small balance commercial real estate buildings, most of our commercial real estate loans fall under $2 million in value. These smaller loans are much easier to approve and close in comparison to "institutional" loans for larger properties,
