Talonvest Capital Provides Capital Markets Update

Overall CMBS has been ahead of 2016 production, but lenders are aggressively pursuing 2017 closings due to uncertainty of 2018 volume, according to Talonvest Capital in its monthly capital markets updates. The result is that aggressive terms are being offered by various lenders, accepting lower debt yield thresholds, more favorable underwriting standards, full-term interest only and offering additional loan proceeds.

Talonvest reports non-recourse construction loans are becoming harder to obtain. But certain lenders are willing to provide lower leverage non-recourse terms to either existing clients or borrower’s with whom they want to establish a relationship.

Many lenders are becoming more selective when reviewing value-add opportunities that might have low going-in debt yields and coverage ratios. For most lenders, strength of sponsorship and property location are two of the main factors that could compel a lender to pursue an opportunity.

Bee Safe Storage and Wine Cellar is owned by Roy Carrol, founder and CEO of The Carroll Cos., a real estate development firm.
