  • How does residential real estate differ from CRE?
    According to most definitions, residential real estate includes single family homes, condominiums, co-ops and typically, smaller (4 units or less) apartment buildings. These properties are usually owner occupied. At R4 Commercial we include 2-4 unit apartment buildings in the multi-family space because of the owner’s ability to lease units to produce income.
  • Can I get a 20 or 30-year mortgage loan for a CRE property?
    A typical loan for a commercial property is a 5-year balloon. That said, there are programs that offer longer mortgage loan terms for multi-family properties and owner-occupied businesses. These programs require certain conditions to be met.
