Commercial Lending

ABOC has been a mainstay of Chicago-area commercial lending for generations. We offer the competitive rates and limited fees you expect from a premier lender combined with the exceptional service, flexibility and rapid processing you can only find with a community bank. We can help you navigate the local business and regulatory climate to ensure a smooth and speedy loan process.

Commercial Real Estate Loans*

We offer mortgage loans for the purchase, rehabilitation, or construction of commercial properties, secured by the property. Choose between a variable-rate or fixed-rate loan with an initial fixed term of up to five years. Our mortgage experts can help determine the optimal loan terms based on your loan size, repayment timeline and business needs.

Acquisition/Refinance Loans

Whether you are looking to acquire a new property or to obtain more favorable terms on a property you already own, ABOC can work with you to craft the mortgage that meets your needs. Options include mortgages for owner-occupied properties or income-producing real estate.

  • Select the amortization period that best meets your needs, with an initial fixed-rate term 
  • Variable rates are also available

Construction Loans

We offer flexible lending options for your commercial construction project.

  • Because these loans are secured by the property, pricing can be very competitive
  • Rates are generally variable, with periodic adjustments based on fluctuations in the variable index

Property Renovation Loans

If you are undertaking a rehabilitation project for an existing property, consider an ABOC property renovation loan. As with our other commercial real estate programs, these loans can be tailored to cater to your unique needs.
