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.
