If you are an estate investor planning to invest in commercial property, we know that you probably have many questions about commercial mortgages. On this page, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about commercial mortgages.
What is a commercial mortgage?
A commercial mortgage loan is a secured mortgage loan for an office building, apartment building, warehouse, or shopping center.
How long does it take to get a commercial mortgage?
While you can quickly get approved for a residential mortgage, getting approved for a commercial mortgage can take up to 6 months. Here at Diane Bertolin, we can help you decrease the length of time it takes to get approval.
What can I expect during commercial mortgage approval process?
During the mortgage approval process, we will:
- Review your finances
- Review background checks
- Help you to meet the mandatory conditions
- Review in-depth appraisals and environmental reports

What are the fees associated with a commercial mortgage?
Typical fees include processing, origination, underwriting, administrative, credit check, application, and legal fees. All these fees can quickly add up. Lender legal fees can be the most variable because they can add hundreds of thousands of dollars. The cost should always be passed through to the borrower.
What credit score do I need to get commercial mortgage approval?
Commercial mortgages have very accommodative credit score requirements. If you’re in excellent shape financially, a poor credit score may not be a roadblock. But you can save money if you have a good credit score via the lower interest rate.
