Commercial real estate loans also come with other charges besides the interest rate. You must be aware of the upfront fees that you are required to pay when getting a commercial loan. They include legal cost, property appraisal, loan origination, loan application, and survey fees. While some lenders may ask you to pay the fees up front, others will bill them annually. Commercial Loan Repayment Terms and Schedule Commercial real estate loans are not like residential mortgages, which are often paid in regular installments over a fixed period. They come in two terms: Intermediate-term loans of 3 years or less Long-term loans that last for 5 to 20 years The loans can also be classified as amortized or balloon loans. Amortized loans are paid in installment plus the interest until the full amount is recovered.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
