Commercial development lenders consider a number of factors when making a decision regarding a loan application. One of the most important of these factors is the ability of the company to repay. Projection figures for the expected increase in sales and current financials are required as part of the application process. Additionally, retail concerns will be required to provide information on the past three years of operations in order to establish a baseline for the company's overall performance. The commercial development lender will also take into account the retail establishment's credit rating and past credit history. Finally, any company assets will be weighed against the existing debt to determine a precise level of risk for the commercial development investment.
