The majority of lending institutions have the requirements and standard structures – and that’s it, there’s very minimal flexibility.

Multifamily Loan Options
Multifamily Commercial Loans

This means that when you’re working with a bank or lending institution, or perhaps your local mortgage broker, you must ensure that your deal matches their niche market, rather than identifying the lender who designs its business with respect to opportunities exactly like yours. You are restricting your options to their strengths, as opposed to taking advantage of the strengths of your loan opportunity with the proper loan provider within your particular niche. What one lender may refer to as a one-off deal, another may consider a perfect match.

Certainly, there’s no chance for a borrower to have access to a comparable degree to capital markets, as well as the identical partnerships as the professional team of multifamily loan specialists at MacGregor & Knight. It’s simply not possible unless you have developed a team which specializes in it, which as evolved alongside the marketplace for the last decade, and which continues to research and evolve on a daily basis.
