Owner-Occupied Commercial Real Estate

A permanent home for your business.

Are you looking for a new place to house your business? Or, considering the purchase of the building your office currently occupies? An owner-occupied commercial real estate loan can help secure financing for the acquisition of a building, the refinancing of an existing property, or for making improvements to your existing property. In order to qualify for this special type of financing, you must occupy 51% or more of your building, which can include common areas.


Our owner-occupied commercial real estate options include:


Conventional OOCRE Loan

  • Term loan up to 10 years with 25 year amortization*, 80% maximum loan to value
  • Includes tenant improvements, purchase, and refinance of existing properties


SBA 504 Loan for CRE Acquisition

  • Term loan up to 25 years for up to $11.25 million
  • Includes tenant improvement and equipment funding


SBA 7a Loan for CRE Acquisition

  • Term loan up to 25 years for up to $5 million
  • Includes tenant improvement, equipment funding, and working capital funding

*Balloon payment may be required at maturity.

All loans subject to approval.
