Market updates from Talonvest


Talonvest Capital shared notable updates that have occurred over the past month in the capital markets:

Several large banks are actively pursuing high net worth clients by offering 10 year fixed rates in the low 3 percent range on commercial and storage financing opportunities, and doing it through their Wealth Management Group. 

A recent lender competition on a $14 million assignment revealed that some life companies are starting to increase the number of years of interest only payments they will offer and to compete with CMBS lenders. At a high enough debt yield / low enough LTV, some will even offer 10 years of interest only.
