Max LTV for commercial financing??
« on: May 08, 2006, 11:37:12 pm »
Hello,

I am trying to find commercial lenders who will lend above 80% LTV with a decent rate?  Does it exist?  90% LTV?

Thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan,

Yes, you can get over 80% LTV, however, when you do that you have to realize that lenders are going to be very exacting on what they will and will not require and the rates that go with it. It is a matter of risk factoring. 90% financing on commercial loans is available but when doing your numbers you must look at what that 90% financing is going to cost you in the long run. It may be great for the downpayment portion but when you look at the rate and payments that go with it you'll have to decide whether or not the monthly costs is worth it. Good luck.

I agree with the above post- 90% is available out there, but the underwriting requirements are strict (perfect credit, etc) and the rates are high- it is unlikely the rate will be below 10%.

Not likely.  If a lender offers 90% (one loan) rates are going to be at or above 10%.

If you go with an 80/10/10 combo (1st and 2nd) you would be looking at 10 Year Treasury + 1.50% (or about 6.65%) on the first and 12.750% on the second....The catch is that the min. loan amount on the first is 2 million and the min loan amount on the 2nd is $250K.

In both cases you will need strong credit and assets.

EEM,

What commercial lenders are you using that are offering rates like that. I have looked around and have not had any luck finding rates like that. Any information you could provide would be great.

It's the same as a CMBS (commercial baced security) the loan is securitized shortly after closing and sold directly to the market/investor.

Most of the time rates offered by conduit lenders are much lower than those offered by traditional commercial lenders.

Drawbacks are: higher closing costs.  Impounds (Taxes, Ins., tenant improvements, Leasing commissions, etc). Lock outs followed by Defeasance or yield maint.

Smallest conduit program I have ever seen is 500K...and they don't really want to do it with a loan amount that low, but they will.

No problem.

Conduit is hot. ;D

It's fun to quote someone conduit rates when another broker is quoting silverhill or met-west, etc. :grinyes:

Fees are higher on conduit loans and the loan process is not for the faint of heart, but for a borrower who has a loan amount over 2million the rate difference is no joke.

Would you want to pay even .5% more than you had to on a loan amount of $5 million?

The only time conduit is worth doing is when you client plans to hold onto the property for at least 10 years and understands how costly the defeasance or yield maintenance prepayment penalties are. Its rarely worth saving .5%

Well if your going to defease...lol...you might as well hang it up.

I've never done a conduit loan for anyone who did not have a portfolio of commercial properties and did not intend to hold onto them.

I'll agree that if someone is not intending on holding the property long term conduit would not make much sense.  There are some agressive portfolio products out there.

I'm just now learning the life insurance ropes.  I still have yet to see what's so attractive about them....maybe I just have not found the right company.
