Real Estate & Construction Loans

Whether you are planning to purchase an apartment building, build homes, refinance a shopping center, or develop a parcel of land, Preferred Bank has a real estate loan to meet your needs.  Real estate loans offered include mini-perm loans, constructions loans and land development loans.

  • Mini-perm loans are available for the purchase or refinance of apartment buildings, shopping centers, office and medical buildings and industrial/warehouse facilities.  Mini-perm loans are typically structured with monthly payments based on a 25-year amortization and a five to seven year maturity.
  • Construction loans are available for apartment buildings, condominiums, custom homes, single family tract homes, shopping centers, office and medical buildings and industrial/warehouse facilities.  Construction loans are tailored to accommodate the time required to build the project and market/lease the completed product.
  • Land development loans are available in conjunction with construction loans for the purchase and improvement of raw land for subsequent development and/or sale.
