MasterPlan Capital Sharpens Focus in 2012; CTL Lending, Bridge Loans and Mortgages on Income Producing Commercial Property to be Emphasized

January 19, 2012

Greenwich CT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

MasterPlan Capital Sharpens Focus in 2012

Commercial real estate investment banking firm, MasterPlan Capital, has disclosed its 2012 business strategy. In a written statement to clients, employees and investors the firm noted that it will concentrate its efforts on credit tenant lease finance, private bridge lending and commercial mortgage lending against income producing commercial real estate. MasterPlan will deemphasize it’s participation in joint ventures and other forms of equity finance and will not consider land or development loans except for triple net leased projects or for existing clients of the firm.

Regarding credit tenant lease (CTL) loans for triple net leased (NNN), single tenant assets the statement read, in part:

“CTL finance has been one of the healthiest sectors of commercial real estate finance and promises to remain to be strong well into the future. Net lease investors have realized that locking in today’s low rates for the long term is a smart business move. CTL offers them a fixed rate, fully amortized, non-recourse commercial mortgage with terms (coterminous with the lease) to 30 years. MasterPlan Capital can provide these income investors with the absolute lowest rates in the industry and can offer them a very high degree of certainty of execution. In-short, no CTL banker is more competitive in pricing or dependable in closing deals.”

The firm also commented on private bridge lending:

“As the economy slowly improves more competitors are entering the short-term, bridge loan space. We intend to compete aggressively for the best deals without subjecting our investors to undue risk. That-is-to-say, in certain instances we might lower our lending rates but won’t increase our loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, won’t offer non-recourse bridge loans and won’t do deals for the sake of doing deals.”

The statement noted that the firm intends to continue originating commercial mortgage loans against income producing commercial real estate:

“Income producing commercial real estate mortgage loans such-as loans against multi-family assets, leased up office properties and light industrial buildings will continue to be a bread-and-butter, activity for the firm.”

The firm went on to explain why it is moving away from joint ventures, equity finance and land and development loans:

“Other forms of structured finance such as joint ventures and equity finance offer the potential for high returns to our company but are very taxing on the time and workload of our people and our third party service providers. We have determined that our valuable time is better spent on our core businesses. As-for lending against land and for construction and development, we will continue making these types of loans against unimproved real estate that is net leased to a single investment grade tenant and for existing clients of our firm but otherwise will no longer be accepting applications for land loans.”

Commercial Mortgage Lenders – Government Agencies Dominate Multi-Family (Apartment) Mortgage Sector

October 23, 2009

There is not much liquidity for commercial mortgages in the retail, office or hospitality sectors of the commercial real estate industry, but there’s plenty of capital available for multi-family (apartment) buildings. The good news is that the Government is lending massive amounts of money against apartment properties; the bad news is that no one else is.

Virtually all the institutional loans being made today to purchase, refinance or build apartments are being funded or otherwise supported by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

For almost 2 years now, these Government Agencies have been the primary lenders to the rental housing industry. They stepped in to counteract the liquidity crisis that was caused by the collapse in the commercial mortgage backed securities markets (CMBS) and, almost by default, have become the only game in town. Even the banks who claim to be lending right now are, in reality, just originating loans and selling them to Fannie or Freddie.

As the economy improves traditional multi-family lenders, such-as insurance companies, smaller regional banks and Wall Street investment houses, would like to re-enter the market place with their own commercial mortgage offerings.  Unfortunately for them, they are finding that they can’t compete with Uncle Sam who, of course, can simply print the money that it uses to lend.

Fannie and Freddie could maintain their dominance in multi-family finance indefinitely, but they won’t. They are lending at such levels because no one else can. As the economy improves and real, traditional banking becomes profitable once again, Government Agencies will retreat and allow the markets to provide the necessary capital. When that happens rates will be higher but the increased competition will mean more people will be able to qualify for loans.

Those lucky enough to meet the requirements of a Government Agency loan ought to apply now. When the time comes to lure lenders back into the market the Government will make itself less attractive by further tightening their underwriting criteria and lowering their loan-to-value ratios.

To secure the most favorable rates, terms and conditions that Government sponsored lending has to offer, a borrower must have decent credit (640 or better FICO) and a sound balance sheet that includes some liquidity (cash in the bank). Fannie and Freddie will lend up to 80% LTV but most loans that they are accepting now are in the 70%-75% LTV range. The property must be able to pay its own mortgage with a debt-service-coverage ratio (DSCR) of 1.2% or better and the building has to be stabilized (history of profitability). It goes without saying that the property must also be in good condition with little deferred maintenance necessary. The Government is sponsoring loans in all 50 states in-order to benefit the rental markets nationwide.

Loans typically come with 3, 5, 7 or 10 year terms and are amortized over 25 years. Currently rates are at historic lows due to the weak economy.

Apartment owners can get Agency backed loans through their local banks, larger national banks and through many other commercial mortgage lenders who enjoy direct and indirect relationships with Fannie, Freddie, FHA and HUD.  You can’t apply directly to the Government.

Property owners who don’t qualify for agency loans will have to pay more to a private lender or work to meet Government requirements.

It’s good to know that there is liquidity for multi-family investing, but it is disconcerting to realize that the only willing and able lender is the US Government. As things improve this should change.

Commercial Mortgage Loans Went Up in ’08 (Will Wonders Never Cease?)

March 24, 2009

According to a recently released report by the MBA, (Mortgage Bankers Association) total commercial and multi-family mortgage debt was actually increasing as-of the end of ’08. Commercial real estate loan balances ended 2008 at $3.5 trillion, up 5% over ’07.

 

Among the many reports and predictions of impending doom in commercial mortgages, this news seems counterintuitive. We are told that things are getting worse and lenders are not lending yet commercial mortgages increase more than $160 billion year over year.

 

Much of the increase is in the “commercial / industrial” category. These are business loans with a commercial real estate component.

 

Who’s lending all this money and holding all this paper? Commercial banks own 44%, 21% is tied up in various forms of CDOs (collateralized debt obligations), life insurance companies own about 9% and other savings institutions are in for 5.5%
