Commercial Real Estate & Construction Loans

When it comes to real estate, local expertise matters. Many of our commercial lenders grew up in Northern Virginia or have lived here a long time. We are proud to offer personal service with a hometown touch.

What is a commercial real estate loan?

Commercial real estate financing provides a mortgage loan for income-generating (commercial) property. CRE developers, small business owners, and other investors can use a commercial property loan to purchase office space, apartment buildings, retail space, hotels, and more. You can rent out the entire commercial space, or use some or all of it for your own enterprise.

What is a commercial construction loan?

Sometimes the perfect commercial space can’t be purchased; instead, you have to build it. Commercial construction (or “build”) loans provide short-term financing to cover the costs associated with site preparation and construction for your commercial real estate project. Make interest-only payments while the property is under construction. Then, you will need to refinance the build loan into a long-term commercial mortgage. Luckily, this usually happens right as your commercial building becomes move-in ready. Thus, commercial construction loans make it affordable to build new commercial properties because monthly payments are lowest when the property isn’t generating income.

How do commercial mortgages work?

Rates and terms vary according to the project and the borrower’s financial situation. In general, commercial real estate loans generally have shorter terms than residential mortgages. They may consist of “balloon loans,” in which you make lower monthly payments for the loan term, ending in a final “balloon” payment of the remaining balance. At TFB, our friendly and experienced CRE lenders partner with you to create a CRE loan that fits your needs and budget.
