NCB’s New York Office Launches New Financing Initiative

 New York, NY (February 6, 2012) — NCB, FSB (NCB), a federally chartered savings bank dedicated to serving cooperatives nationwide, is proud to announce its newest financing initiative. The Bank will now provide funding for the purchase of cooperative and condominium professional office spaces in properties throughout the Tri-State area.

“In the New York and Westchester areas, there are a substantial number of cooperative and condominium professional spaces available for sale,” said Robbie Gendels, a senior loan officer at NCB. “For many professionals, especially medical, dental and legal offices, it’s more advantageous to own their space than rent.  We are excited to provide these businesses with the financing to do just that.”

The Bank’s new loan program provides financing up to 75 percent of the office spaces’ appraised value, with a minimum loan amount of $200,000.  The loans will offer a five- or seven-year adjustable rate mortgage, with a fixed interest rate for the first five or seven years of the loan term, up to a 30-year amortization. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans are also available to these borrowers.
