What is a Business Renovation Loan?

A business renovation loan is a type of loan that gives companies the funding they need to fix up commercial and retail spaces. Making repairs to or modernizing buildings to work for your business needs is costly. Many businesses don't have the cash flow to fund the entire project. Instead, they turn to business renovation loans to get the capital they need to transform these spaces into useable businesses.

How Business Renovation Loans Work

Business renovation loans can either be in the form of a line of credit or a lump sum. Depending on qualifying factors, companies can qualify for varying loan amounts to complete renovation projects in their office buildings, commercial spaces, and retail locations. These loans can be secured or unsecured. Often business renovation loans are a secured type of loan, with the property itself acting as collateral.
