Stated Income Commercial Real Estate
Is a Stated Income Commercial Real Estate Loan Right for Your Business?

When traditional loans are no longer an option or if you’re tired of wading through the mountains of paperwork involved in loan approval processing, you may want to consider a stated income commercial real estate loan. While a traditional loan focuses on the borrower’s credit history, a stated income loan focuses on property value. The real estate value must be enough to cover the insurance, mortgage and taxes of the loan.

Advantages of a Stated Income Commercial Real Estate Loan

This type of loan is especially helpful to businesses turned down for other types of loans because of credit issues. Stated income loans need less documentation and receive faster approval than traditional loans. Businesses can use stated income commercial real estate loans for the same purposes as tradition loans such as buying property, building working capital, consolidating debt, refinancing and property improvements.

Whether your business is apartments, restaurants, warehouse or anything else, if your property meets the requirements, you can qualify for a stated income loan.
