#106 Christina Suter: Education- What You Need to Know About Commercial Mortgage Loans

“In a commercial loan, 5 units and above, there’s often a fixed time period and a variable time period. It’s like a variable rate loan in the residential world, but there are no 30 year fixed loans in the multi family world.” -Christina Suter


Today I am talking about the difference between commercial and residential loans and what the process over time looks like for both. A residential loan can maintain the same interest rate and payment through its 30 year entirety. A commercial loan on the other hand will have a fixed period and a variable time period. For a commercial fixed loan it can only be fixed for 3, 5, 7 or 10 years. As the intra bank lending rates increase, so does the interest rates for commercial loans. That is the major difference between residential mortgage loans and commercial mortgage loans.
