Developers seeking non-recourse commercial new construction mortgage financing and/or high-LTV commercial real estate new construction financing loans have reached a crossroads. The changes being enforced in the commercial lending arena on supervised institutions now make commercial real estate new construction lending and mortgage financing less available than ever. This means lenders have to be more discriminating than ever, as the costs for compliance and loss reserve contributions have reached levels that are not sustainable for the banking industry’s historical business model. Yet there is good news for developers and entrepreneurs.
The Impact of the JOBS Act
The passage of the JOBS Act has created a fundamental change in the means and methods by which businesses and commercial real estate income-producing property new construction capital financing can be undertaken. These changes have caused the capital markets to realize that each stage of a given business’ life-cycle is a valuation point, an optional exit point and a profit-taking opportunity by which various investment risks can be eliminated to the advantage of all parties.
What it Means to Your Project
The practical outcome will be the realization that debt leverage is no longer the tool to be pulled out of the shed to dig up higher yields. In fact, the cost of capital in debt leveraged transactions is likely to become the prime mover in eliminating the modern banking system model in its entirety. Bottom line: if you are seeking capital financing and think you will get there by obtaining high-LTV mortgage loans, you need to talk to someone who knows the facts, as this just might not be the case.
The INVIZEN Platform was conceptually designed to support the end-goal of preventing investment losses from being realized on commercial real estate loans and investments.
The INVIZEN Platform design construct offers an end-to-end approach that engages the project or business at whatever life-cycle stage the given project or business may be currently found to be operating within. The INVIZEN Platform is designed to provide a progressive sweep of the entire due diligence spectrum of issues with every review. It starts with the valuation of the transaction opportunity.
Collateral underwriting is important but the reality is that collateral underwriting really only comes into play for EAD calculations and insurance risk mitigation. The value of the opportunity is the real issue and the Verifier Report from INVIZEN directly addresses this issue in terms of determining if the proposed transaction is priced at a discount to market based upon the specific risk profile presented by the project, the project’s business and the project’s market. That’s the Verifier Report.
Market Risk Management
First Look is our real-time market feasibility analysis reporting system for which there is no peer. The next-gen analytics design of First Look provides testing of the empirical assumptions and findings of the market feasibility analysis to determine if a reasonable basis exists for their inclusion and/or use in the resulting report that includes detail you just can’t find anywhere else. That’s the First Look Report.
Financial Risk Assessment Underwriting
Final Check is the crown jewel of the INVIZEN Platform. Final Check provides full capacity risk underwriting, collateral risk underwriting, credit risk underwriting and default risk underwriting financial risk assessment data and findings that is backed by a post-funding monitoring program that prevents the most common causes of credit and default risk events from becoming your loss severity risk realities. That’s Final Check and there is just nothing like it.
The outflow is then matched into our unique credit risk management platform that ties credit risk (again, think hard about managing CECL) and default risk prevention program known as iCREDIT.
This unique system provides real-time forensic auditing of every transaction event and generates an entirely new set of GAAP financial statements for the benefit of all financial partners that can be accessed in real-time.
Financial reporting transparency risk, execution risk, default risk and all of the associated risks are now within the scope of being proactively managed. That’s the INVIZEN approach that makes the difference in everything we do.
