It is high time to develop an understanding of CRE loans. Read this blog to get essential information about CRE loans. 



·         A commercial real estate or CRE loan is based on a debt-based agreement set between a borrower and a financial institution under which the borrower uses the funds to buy commercials property. 

·         There is a common misconception that the terms commercial loan and commercial real estate are interchangeable. However, this is not a valid concept as both have their own significance. In commercial loans, the secured funds can be used for non-real estate purposes like buying some machinery or managing some expenses. 

·         However, a commercial real estate loan is a mortgage secured by a lien on commercial property in contrast to residential property. It is a loan that refers to any income-producing real estate used for business purposes such as for offices, retails, and hotels.
