There is not always a right or wrong answer. Rather, the answer depends on the many nuances in financing commercial transactions!
When a commercial property owner lists their property for sales and the buyer submits a purchase offer, the pre-qualification is different than applying for a residential mortgage.  In a residential mortgage, the lender can pre-qualify a borrower based on their personal income and credit.  In a commercial loan, the lender can give a rough estimate based on property type, loan-to-value ratio and net operating income. This course will give the basic understanding of commercial real estate financing and general metrics used by lenders.

Topics Include:

  • Types of Lenders
  • Types of Loans
  • Key Commercial Mortgage Metrics
  • Rates
  • Prepayment Penalties
  • Loan Applications/Submissions

The line between residential real estate and commercial real estate does not have to be blurred because of lack of basic knowledge!
Commercial real estate is a broad subject that has numerous components and can be extremely complex. Commercial property itself typically includes office buildings or complexes, malls, shopping centers or separate individual retail stores, multiple types of industrial property, warehouses, medical center, hotels, farmland, and multi-family housing. The practice of commercial real estate incorporates many terms and acronyms that must be understood to interpret it clearly and gain an accurate picture of the numerous components that play a role.

Topics Include:

  • Introduction to commercial real estate
  • How sales play a part in commercial real estate

Associate Broker 2
$34.00

Perplexed by property management?  You are not alone – but the confusion can be addressed and money made!!

Property management is a very prominent aspect in the field of commercial real estate.  This category of commercial real estate can be heavily regulated, dependent on locale, and in most areas it is typically overseen at the municipal level by specific commissions or licensure boards. The law of a particular region will help shape the framework, but the elementary principles that are involved in the actual day to day tasks of property management remain the same. Commercial real estate, as applied to property management, focuses on principles, and where applicable local laws and standards, to help get a broad view of the subject.
 

Topics Include:

  • Functions and property management
  • Responsibilities in the field
  • Protocol for managers
  • Basic rules in commercial real estate
