To help you pursue your commercial real estate ownership goals, your private wealth manager can refer you to a Bank of America credit executive who will draw upon these strengths: regional knowledge of the real estate market, expertise in wealth management and the extensive resources of a leading financial institution.

At Bank of America, we view borrowing for the purchase of investment real estate as a strategic wealth management tool. Bank of America can assist high-net-worth clients looking to diversify their balance sheet or investment portfolio. Bank of America can offer access to financing for a variety of commercial investment real estate properties, including but not limited to:

  • Apartments (non-owner occupied)
  • Farm, ranch and timberland
  • Industrial properties
  • Office buildings
  • Retail centers
  • Owner occupied commercial real estate

Investing in real estate may enhance your overall wealth management strategy through:

Diversification1 — Investment in real estate can contribute to a well-balanced, diversified strategy because its performance is often not correlated to the equity markets.

Cash flow — Real estate investments can help create a stable cash flow source for retirement and other needs.

Favorable tax treatment2 — Taxpayers who itemize deductions may be able to deduct investment interest when the loan is used to purchase property held for investment.

Customized Financing Options and Risk Management

Bank of America's underwriting sophistication and capabilities can create financing based on your unique needs. The Bank of America credit executives have the knowledge and product expertise to create a customized, flexible loan structure based on your balance sheet, asset allocation, cash flow, tax considerations and general wealth-building objectives.

Bank of America can offer a comprehensive array of financing solutions with competitive features and terms — from the traditional to the complex. Bank of America also offers variable-rate financing options and interest rate hedging strategies. A customized credit solution that includes an interest rate swap, cap, collar, or other flexible strategy may help you manage interest rate risk while helping to meet your income and borrowing requirements.3
