Asset Backed Lending
If you have securities like stocks or bonds there are lenders that would lend up to 90% of the value of these securities. This can serve as the full loan or the down payment. In either case you will still own your securities, they will just be the collateral on a loan.
Self Directed IRAs
If you have substantial assets in a IRA, 401k or 403b those assets can be placed into a custodial account that will allow you to purchase commercial real estate where the owner would be the Self Directed IRA. If you do not have enough to fully purchase the property, your Self Directed IRA could make loans. They could lend you the money for the down payment for your income producing property.
Down Payment Assistance Programs
If the building you are purchasing has enough equity and the seller is willing to work with you, you can establish seller funded down payment assistance. The Down Payment Assistance Company will actually provides the down payment. The seller pays the DPA Company to provide the assistance based on the equity in the property.
