Commercial Real Estate Financing in the New World

Lending is now the last piece of the capital stack to consider. It’s been rendered moot for all but the biggest commercial real estate transactions.

For project budgets of less than $75 million, commercial real estate lending represents an expensive luxury that serves no purpose.

Up to $75 Million in Non-Recourse Financing

Obtaining commercial real estate construction financing for projects having a capital budget of less than $75 million no longer requires you to go begging to the bank as your primary means of obtaining financial investment leverage.

Bank Lending Offers Lousy Probability of Success Odds…

The truth is that the probability of success with commercial banks, local banks and credit unions pale in comparison to the probability of success odds owing to quasi-public offerings authorized under the new securities regulations (1 in 5.55 odds for the banking industry versus 1 in 1.47 odds for crowdfunded offerings).

The pre-issuance out-of-pocket cost expectations are about half that which attends commercial real estate lending, and the timing expectations are about the same or better. Of course, you may still like going with your hat in your hand to beg at master’s doorstep, sign away your life as the bank’s servant or be constantly jerked around until you are ready to scream. Those options are still available to those who have poor math skills.
