Opportunity in the Apartment Market for Family Offices

I like Antonio’s article and hope that more family offices invest in multifamily assets. We’ve always enjoyed finding commercial real estate financing for family offices, but the challenge has been the locations. Antonio suggests that they should look in secondary and tertiary markets but what we’ve found is that the family offices tend to start off investing in locations near their home base with a GP partner before heading into a smaller market which makes it more difficult. We’d love to see more commercial real estate news saying that family offices are pouring into the space but only time will tell if they want to pick up multifamily assets and commercial building loans in markets they don’t know well.

New Approach to Senior Living: Multigenerational Communities

This was an interesting article to read, and I think personally a good idea. The challenge with this idea on senior housing will come from the commercial real estate lending side. The commercial real estate financing business moves pretty slow and they like to see that there are many very similar projects that they can draw from for comps and previous success. We’ve worked on similar projects recently and have seen that attaining a commercial real estate mortgage was more challenging in this sector, although still doable.

The End of Office Space as We Know It

Our team at Lever Capital Partners has been providing commercial real estate financing for a few clients in the co-working space. As the average interest rate for commercial real estate loans keeps creeping up, our office owners are looking for additional ways to boost their NOI. Over the last couple of years we’ve been hired by firms that are trying to emulate WeWork in markets where they already have a strong office presence. The ability to get a commercial building loan is getting easier as WeWork co-working expands into smaller markets.

Smaller Metros in the West are Emerging

Our team at Lever Capital Partners has noticed similar trends as we started seeing more smaller metro deals come across our desk the last few years. It’s still hard convincing non bank commercial real estate lenders to do business in many of these markets, despite showing the data that supports commercial real estate financing in those areas. The more cre news similar to this article the better support we’ll have in the future when working on deals in this sector.
