Are there any other options for a commercial down payment than 20%? If so please help me out with my options.
You can always put MORE down, but I'll assume you'd like to put down LESS!
The easiest option is to borrow the downpayment from other sources (401k, friends/family, low interest credit card). If appropriate, secure that against another property or the subject property (after close) with a second lien. Get transactional RE attorney to write up any notes, deeds of trust, etc.
The next best alternative is probably to get a cash partner and go in 50/50 or some agreed split owning the property in an entity with a clear operating agreement that spells everything out. Get attorney and CPA advice.
I do not think you can pay less than 20 percent down payment. I agree with Doug McLeod. You need to find some investors or other source of finances.
@Tony Velez You should be able to get a 15% down option. Also, it depends on the size of the loan. A funny thing happens in commercial lending. The more you borrow the more you can leverage.

Yes my biggest issue is the big down payment. There's commercial deals in CT. I have to be a little more creative.
