A Better Way To Get A Conduit CMBS Warehouse Building Loan

Crefcoa provides conduit CMBS warehouse loans through our proprietary online commercial real estate lending platform (CRELP). Through CRELP we are changing the way owners and investors obtain CMBS loans for warehouse buildings. Unlock the full potential of your commercial real estate investment with a warehouse CMBS loan that meets your individual needs and investment objectives with the most competitive rate and terms.


Crefcoa provides CMBS conduit loans for warehouse and industrial properties for single tenant and multi-tenant properties in medium and large markets. Warehouse properties that are owner-occupied, or owned or operated through a related entity are not eligible for CMBS financing. Visit our commercial loan center to learn more about loan programs for business owner-occupied properties.


Acceptable properties may be used for manufacturing, research and development, storage, and assembly with property quality grade of B or better. Properties should be located in industrial park developments with good access to major highways and thoroughfares.
