What is a business construction loan?

Commercial construction loans are short-term loans that are used to finance the building or renovation of a commercial building. Funds are disbursed in a series of draws as construction progresses instead of a single lump-sum payment. Once the project is done, the borrower can convert short-term construction financing to a longer-term commercial mortgage.

How to get a commercial construction loan

  • Down payment: Down payments will typically range from 10% – 30% and will vary depending on the borrower’s qualifications.
  • Specific construction plans: Will require a copy of your building plans. A list of the building materials, their quality and cost may also be necessary.
  • Credit score: Higher score applicants are more likely to receive approval and qualify for lower interest rates.
  • Debt-to-income ratio: A business’s debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is a common indicator of a borrower’s ability to repay a loan. Borrowers should aim for a DTI ratio of 43% before applying for a construction loan.
