Beginners’ Mistakes

There are numerous commercial property loans available. Before committing yourself to a loan, it is important to assess your level of risk. By evaluating all the possible commercial factors, you can avoid risks and anticipate shocks in the market.

When sourcing for a commercial property loan, think about the affordability of your desired property and the strength of your cash position. You should also ask if you have sufficient cash to tide you over an economic downturn, and if you can afford loans with fluctuating interest rates (or if you would prefer the security of a fixed interest rate).

Common Beginners’ Mistakes

  • 1. Neglecting due diligence in checking property condition before purchasing.
  • 2. Miscalculating value by relying on inaccurate projections of potential income and expenses, instead of real operating figures.
  • 3. Jumping into the market as a speculator. The commercial property investment space is highly profitable for informed, savvy investors – not for speculators.
  • 4. Poor cashflow management, not understanding all the costs involved with acquiring and holding commercial property.
  • 5. Not establishing your business plan in detail to the bank or financial company.
  • 6. If you are a Small Medium Enterprise (SME) or start-up, having a small paid-up capital instead of shoring up a realistic paid-up capital in comparison to the loan you are applying for.
  • 7. Over-leveraging by borrowing too much money (and incurring higher repayment rates than necessary).
  • 8. Not properly calculating your projected income, which will determine your ability to comfortably make payments on your loan.
  • 9. Having a less than commendable credit rating, which affects your credibility where the bank is concerned.
  • 10. Not having anything to offer up as collateral (this may have you labelled as a higher risk borrower, possibly increasing your interest rates).
  • 11. Failing to plan for multiple exit strategies
  • 12. Neglecting to seek advice before investing. Leverage on our consultants for professional, unbiased advice on commercial property loans to equip yourself with the knowledge you need to make a sound investment decision

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Commercial property in Singapore is considered as (but not limited to):

  • Offices
  • Retail shops/outlets
  • Shophouses
  • Hotels
  • Conservation properties
  • …and others

Commercial spaces in Singapore usually come with a 30, 60, 99, or 999-year lease, with most tenures being between 60 to 99 years. Freehold commercial spaces are available, but rare.

The value of a piece of commercial property is based on a combination of factors, usually including:

  • Property tenure
  • Property type
  • Rental yield
  • GST registration
  • Return on invested capital
  • Management fees
  • Mortgage interest rates

The tax is a flat 10% of the annual value of the property. If you fail to lease out the space, a vacancy refund of the property tax may be applicable.

If you are a GST-registered company, the buying of commercial spaces is subjected to a 7% GST. If you are an individual making the purchase, you will have to bear the GST yourself.

A loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of up to 80% is allowed, even with outstanding residential mortgages, with the usual maximum loan tenure standing up to 30 years. Loans for commercial properties tend to command a higher interest rate relative to residential property loans. These loans come in either a fixed rate package or a variable rate package.
