SEATTLE, April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- As economic expansion continues across America, Washington State remains the crane capitol of the United States due to the increase in commercial construction activity.

Seattle-based Inspirus Credit Union (pronounced inspire-us) opens Commercial Real Estate Lending Division to support the increase of construction in Washington State.

In 2015, Inspirus Credit Union started a Commercial Lending division to support the increase of construction building and development in Washington State. The Commercial Lending team at Inspirus has a combined 46 years of industry experience.

"We have capital to lend to businesses that would like to own their own building, and to individuals that are seeking to invest in commercial real estate," said Inspirus Credit Union Commercial Lending Administrator Bob Niles.

With loan amortizations of 25 to 30 years, and loan maturities of up to 15 years, Inspirus provides financing opportunities for investors and business owners without the worry of refinancing as often.

Inspirus offers competitive rates for commercial real estate loans for a variety of property types, including multi-family, office, retail, and light industrial. Inspirus will lend on properties throughout Washington and a few surrounding communities.

"Utilizing the SBA 504 loan program, we can finance a building that the business will occupy with usually only a 10% down payment," said Niles. "This allows the business to conserve their cash and keep the balance invested in the business itself. Another benefit is the SBA's debenture is at a below-market fixed rate for 20 years."
