What options are there to finance real estate?

A property loan means that the borrower pledges a property, which acts as security for the loan.

How much leverage can you get?

The leverage ratio for real estate projects can be described in the form of LTV (loan-to-value) or LTC (loan-to-cost) for new construction builds. Maximum LTV is usually around 60-80%. And for new constructions, the company can borrow up to 90% of its costs.

What interest rate is common for real estate loans?

Property loans usually have a premium over the central bank interest rate of 6-8%. This means that the interest rate on property loans is currently around 10-12% p.a.

Below we list different types of financing solutions for real estate loans and for what purpose they are usually relevant.

fastighetslån företag

Bridge loan company | Common terms and conditions:

Normal loan period: 3-24 months

Flexible amortization

Is suitable if your company has a temporary capital need and wants to avoid ongoing repayments.

Junior business loan | Common terms and conditions:

Loan-to-value ratio: 60 - 80% (loan-to-value)

Normal loan period: 24-60 months

Is suitable if your company has needs beyond a traditional bank loan. It is most often used to carry out a renovation on the property.

Building credit | Common terms and conditions:

Interest is only paid on the amount used

Loan-to-value ratio: 60 - 90% (Loan-to-cost)

Loans for new construction, major remodeling or an extension to a property. It is usually required that you as a property owner have finalized a few previous projects before.

Acquisition loan | Common terms and conditions:

Financing already at the time of acquisition

Loan-to-value ratio: 0 - 80% (Loan-to-value)

Used by companies when acquiring land, property or during a company transfer. The advantage compared to a down loan from the big bank is that you can get real estate financing already at the time of acquisition.

Business loan for property

Instead of a real estate loan, a regular business loan can also be a good alternative for acquisitions, renovations and similar smaller projects. There are limited to no differences between a business loan and a real estate loan.

"Our adviser managed to conjure up financing for us via Krea. As our previous lender abruptly said they would not extend our credit, it required some pretty quick pucks. We had a great connection with Krea, no weirdness at all and it didn't take long at all before we were able to resolve the credit. Our advisor was very helpful, I highly recommend Krea and have done so to others."

What is required to get a real estate loan?

Companies can pledge real estate, shares, and provide a personal or parent company guarantee as security. Although entrepreneurs prefer to avoid the risk of collateral and personal guarantees, the chances of getting a property loan granted increase if they are included in the application. It can also lead to better loan terms.

Since real estate loans generally involve larger amounts than traditional business loans, more extensive documentation is usually required.

Below we list some formal requirements for real estate financing.

Fastighet lån finansiering

Common requirements for the company and documentation ​

1

The company must be registered and active in Sweden

2

The company must have a certain corporate form. We are currently unable to help with loans for condominium associations.

3

A current valuation or value statement of the property

4

It is always required to have a specific property object that you want to acquire or give as a property pledge (i.e. property designation must be specified)

5

In the case of complex transactions, liquidity plans or project estimates with timetables and costs are also needed

What is the interest rate on real estate loans?

Banks and other lenders that Krea works with usually focus on short-term financing, although a few may offer longer repayment periods. The annual interest is between 10-16% and a normal repayment period is 6-36 months, but where the maximum repayment period with some players extends to 240 months. In case of larger financing needs, we can also broker requests for senior loans with major banks with lower interest ranges.

How much can you borrow on a real estate?

The loan-to-value ratio depends on the property type and the geographical location of the property. As a rule of thumb, most of our real estate lenders offer a loan-to-value ratio of up to 80% of the property's value, but there are exceptions where the entire loan can be financed by the lender.

Collateral for real estate loans

In addition to the property mortgage itself, lenders usually also require a mortgage from the owner company and/or a share mortgage. In some cases, lenders may also require a limited personal guarantee, but this is not that common with real estate loans.
