Commercial mortgages are a little more complex than your average residential mortgage.
Because a commercial mortgage carries a higher risk for the lender, interest rates are generally higher. If you need capital to start or expand a business though, a commercial mortgage may be essential – after all, it takes money to make money.

Commercial Mortgage Differences
Your commercial mortgage’s interest rate depends on current market conditions and how much of a deposit you make. If you provide less than 25% of the property’s costs, the risk to the lender increases, which will result in a higher interest rate.
The term of your mortgage will also depend on what is negotiated. For example, your term could be 10 years or 20 years, and your interest rate could be either fixed, or variable. Fixed-rate commercial mortgages provide stability because you’ll know what your payments will be every month. Variable rate commercial mortgages are tied to market conditions, so you could save money if interest rates decline, but you could face higher payments if interest rates increase.
Financing for Different Ventures
A commercial mortgage can be used for a wide range of purposes and different ventures. Some of these might include:
- Multi-Family Housing and Apartment Buildings
- Mixed Use Properties
- Self-Storage facilities
- Retail Plazas
- Office Buildings
- Warehouse and Light Industrial Properties
- Special Purpose and Unique Venues
- Hotels and Motels
- Health Care Facilities, including Assisted Living, Nursing and Retirement Homes
- Golf Courses
- Gas Stations
