Are you applying for a commercial real estate loan? Would you like to have your commercial loan flow smoothly and close in a timely manner? Well of course you would, after all who wouldn't. The problem is that most borrowers aren't sure how to make this happen. The easiest way to ensure a quick, easy, and accurate closing, is through preparation. In commercial lending, preparation means knowing what a commercial real estate loan underwriter is looking for, and providing it, before they ask.
