Have mortgage products improved any?

One of my listings is a retail/auto repair entitiy with a 2 br 1 bth apartment upstairs in which a new owner may live comfortably. This does not qualify for a standard residential mortgage, and it does not seem to fit a buisness loan model. Does anyone have a suggestion for financing?

NO 25% down is not good

You are probably going to get a commercial mortgage where a 25% down payment or more will be neccessary. Of course, it will probably be more if the building is vacant and produces no income. Check with a local bank and a commercial lender as well.

No improvement and I expect the options to get worse.
Expect AT LEAST 30% down with anything auto service related. Also expect to jump through a lot of hoops when it comes to all the environmental work that will be required by the bank.

What are the terms of the lease and how strong is the tenant? NO conditions are poor.
