Commercial Real Estate

Tailored loans from building to buying.

At Sunwest Bank, we understand the complexities that are involved in creating a solid commercial real estate loan. Our team has deep experience in the underwriting and due diligence processes. 


Construction Loans

We offer construction financing for multifamily and commercial/industrial developments. Our hands-on approach provides quick response times, both during the approval process as well as with funding draw requests during construction. Loan terms are structured to provide sufficient time to complete the project and allow for marketing.

Bridge Loans

Sunwest Bank offers acquisition and rehabilitation financing for existing properties that need to be updated to either attract new tenants or bring rents up to market levels. Upon completion of the rehabilitation process and re-tenanting, the bridge loan can be rolled into a permanent loan provided by Sunwest Bank.

Permanent Loans

We offer permanent loan financing with terms up to ten years on income producing properties. Flexible interest rate terms can be fixed, adjustable, or a combination of both.

General Terms

  • Loan amounts up to $8,000,000
  • Up to 75% loan-to-value depending upon loan program and collateral type
  • Prompt underwriting with local decision-making
  • In-house fund control for construction projects
