Traditional Bank Loans
Bank Loans for Apartment Buildings and Commercial Real Estate
Not all bank loans are created equal. Whenever you are planning to finance your apartment building or commercial real estate utilizing your regional financial institution, you might assume there is very little need to work with an intermediator. Think again!
Every bank has its own niche, particularly when you are referring to the distinctions among community banks, credit unions, regional banks, and national institutions. A number of banks provide fully amortizing loans, others cap amortizations at 20 years. Your preferred bank might cap leverage at 70% whereas another bank might be comfortable funding multifamily properties at 80%. Perhaps you are in need of a floating rate bridge loan, a commercial mortgage without any prepayment penalty such as yield maintenance or defeasance. Maybe you have a few documentation restrictions.
With regard to the previously mentioned factors, you should collaborate with an intermediary who has dozens of banking connections – someone who is able to take advantage of those partnerships to your advantage.
