Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs

We not only offer Hard Money and Bridge loans, we also offer Agency, CMBS, Bank, Alternative, Soft Money and Private Money Small Balance Commercial Mortgages loans including ground up construction programs. When we discuss Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs we are specifically referring to residential multifamily properties with five or more units. If you are looking for financing on a multifamily property of two to four units that would be covered under our residential program. Generally, the down payment, rates and closing costs are lower for a residential two to four unit multifamily property than they are for a commercial multifamily property with five or more units. Ultimately, whether residential or commercial multifamily mortgage programs, we have many options for apartment loans.

Agency Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs

Agency Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs are for residential multifamily and residential mixed use properties, where the minimum loan is $1,000,000, the loan to value is between 75% and 85% plus the rates are usually the lowest rates in the market. These full document loans are almost always lower costs and lower rates than Bank programs and are non recourse. If you currently are financed through your local bank and want better terms consider our Agency financing program. The Agency Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs are conventional financing for apartment buildings and mixed use properties that are primarily residential.

Alternative Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs

Alternative multifamily, mixed use and commercial mortgage loan programs are provided through portfolio small balance funds that create their own guidelines that are more liberal than Banks and Agency financing. They offer stated income and bank statement programs for borrowers with good properties and good credit. There are many good real estate investors and cash flowing properties that do not meet agency and bank guidelines that are better risk than hard money and bridge loans. The loan to values range for this program is 65% to 80% depending on property type. The best rates and highest loan to value options are for multifamily and mixed use properties. Rates are typically 2 to 3 points higher than Bank and Agency Programs. These funding options are a good alternative to Hard Money, Private Money and Bridge Loans.

Hard Money – Bridge – Private Money / Multifamily Commercial Mortgage Programs

These loan programs are the same category of financing. These are all short term asset based real estate funding programs. Usually credit is less of an issue, the focus is on the property. Often used to rehab, lease up and stabilize property until the borrower can refinance the property into lower rate permanent financing. Most often used by investors who improve the value and then sell the properties or who need quick close with less documentation. Commercial multifamily and mixed use Fix and Flip financing uses Hard Money – Bridge – Private Money options.

Where as bridge loans generally signify the property does not have stabilized cash flow to qualify bank or agency financing.
