Strong Housing Demand Paces Elevated Construction As Major Employers Bolster Presence

Nashville’s urban lifestyle draws apartment renters as employers converge on downtown. Nashville’s skyline continues to grow as construction of the first tower of Amazon’s Operations of Excellence Center began last year. Just south of this development, Asurion broke ground on its 550,000-square-foot headquarters in the Gulch, consolidating its four local locations. These projects will generate over 5,400 workers combined. As these and other newly created jobs fill, households will continue to form metro wide. Multifamily rental leasing will be robust, falling slightly shy of the apartment units opening in 2020 and allowing market demand for apartments to support rental rate growth for the 11th consecutive year. The rising price point to live in the central business district has triggered some multifamily renters to seek lower monthly rental rates in surrounding submarkets where commuting to downtown is easily accessible. Suburban locations southeast on Interstate 21 to Murfreesboro offer monthly rent that is approximately 45 percent below central Nashville’s average. Residential demand here is also driving new construction for those who desire apartments with modern amenities, yet at a lower price point than downtown. Investors looking to purchase property in the Nashville market should definitely look into taking out an apartment loan to finance their acquisition.

Bidding heats up in southern submarkets. The construction pipeline in suburban areas will continue to support an increase in deal velocity south of downtown, as investors favor the area’s affordable price points. In southeast Nashville toward Smyrna, out-of-state buyers have been actively purchasing multifamily inventory in the $15 million-plus price tranche for approximately 18 percent below the metro price per apartment unit average. First-year yields for these are slightly above the metro average cap rate of 5.6 percent. An influx of bidding in the southern suburbs has triggered some high-net-worth investors with a smaller pool of capital to seek Class B/C apartment buildings closer to downtown. In West End, building stock in the $1 million to $8 million area trades with cap rates near the low-6 to mid-6 range. Nashville is a great market for investors to finance their next apartment purchase with a multifamily loan.

2020 Nashville Multifamily Market Forecast

Nashville Completions vs. Absorption Nashville Completions vs. Absorption

The Nashville National Multifamily Index Rank is at 31, up 6 places. Tight vacancy, heightened unit pricing and higher yields than many other markets raise Nashville in the Index.

Employment in Nashville is up 1.3%. Low unemployment will result in a slowdown in hiring this year as firms add 13,600 workers. Last year 16,500 jobs were created.

Construction in Nashville is expected to exceed 4,900 apartment units. Construction will rise slightly from last year’s as deliveries near the 4,700-unit mark. The area southeast of downtown including the town of Smyrna and farther out to Murfreesboro will receive the largest share of completions.

Vacancy in Nashville is down 10 bps. Strong demand will contract vacancy for the second consecutive year, tightening the rate to 4.8 percent.

Rent in Nashville is up 7.0%. Building on last year’s 6.9 percent rent surge, the average effective rent will lift to $1,365 per month.

Investment opportunities in Nashville remain strong for those looking to finance their next purchase with an apartment loan. Increased leasing momentum downtown continues to attract investors to the urban core, pursuing cap rates in the mid-5 percent cap rate area. We highly recommend any investors looking to buy in the Nashville market to reach out to us regarding a multifamily loan.

Commercial Mortgage Rate Trends in 2020

Nashville Vacancy and Rents Nashville Vacancy and Rents

At the beginning of 2020 the overall market outlook did not suggest any crucial factors that would negatively impact the commercial mortgage market. Commercial mortgage lenders and investors expected a very profitable 2020. Almost 65 percent of the top commercial real estate companies believed that commercial mortgage loan originations would go up this year and over 15 percent anticipated an overall rise of over 5 percent. Data released at the beginning of 2020 indicated that commercial mortgage lenders were expected to close over $680 billion of commercial mortgage loans this year. Experts were of the belief that commercial mortgage lenders would remain bullish about making loans. In addition, as commercial mortgages rates were expected to go down most industry leaders were convinced that borrowers in 2020 will have a strong desire to take out commercial mortgage loans. However, with the recent outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the US and global economy has been incredibly unstable. The stock market seems to be bottoming out and commercial mortgage rates have been hit very hard. While the Fed has dropped short term interest rates, long term commercial mortgage rates have actually been rising. Huge cities like New York are shutting down. In this economic climate, many investors are scared to purchase commercial real estate and to take out commercial mortgages. Additionally, the oil industry has been hit hard. Not only are people traveling less due to coronavirus, China and Russia are currently involved in a price war which is driving the price of oil way down. Many people are optimistic that as spring and summer roll in and public health officials learns how to handle this pandemic, the economy should regain its strength.

What Happened with Commercial Mortgage Rates in 2019

Nashville Sales Trends Nashville Sales Trends

As we review the 2019 year, the commercial real estate market continued to flourish as the longest economic recovery in American history continued. Due to both GDP growth and a steady decline in the unemployment rate, 2019 saw the stock market make huge gains. Many investors thought that commercial mortgage rates would go up last year. However, in actuality commercial mortgage rates actually went down three times. These interest rates helped to spur investors to put more money into commercial real estate. With regards to commercial mortgage loan origination, the 2019 fiscal year far exceeded expectations due to solid fundamentals, low interest rates and higher demand for commercial mortgages. While 2018 commercial mortgage volume totaled about $339 billion, an increase of 18.9% from 2017, the 2019 numbers total about $369 billion. On a larger scale, the 2019 economy prospered overall. Over the course of the year about 2.1 million jobs were added to the market. In addition, the unemployment rate decreased about 50 basis points last year, matching the lowest unemployment rate in fifty years. At the beginning of 2019 many investors were expecting a recession. However, the economy improved as job growth rose and the unemployment rate decreased. This economic improvement had an immensely positive impact on the commercial real estate market as more investors rushed to put their money into commercial properties.

We consider loan requests up to 80% LTV. We offer loans with and without recourse (personal guarantees) and with and without prepayment penalties. We offer fixed rate loans with terms from 3 to 30 years.
  • Office Building Loans – we lend on all types of office properties, including multi-tenant and single tenant buildings in all locations. We lend on both owner occupied and investor properties. We typically lend up to 75% LTV on investor properties and up to 90% on owner occupied properties. Most loans are written for either 5, 7, or 10 years at a fixed rate with a 25-year amortization.
  • Retail Building Loans – we gladly consider requests for commercial mortgage loans on shopping centers, retail strip centers, and individual retail stores. We are a little bit more conservative on retail loans these days based on the current climate for retailers and will consider LTV ratios of 65%-75% depending on the deal. We actively lend on NNN single tenant retail locations such as Starbuck’s, CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General, and other national credit rated tenants.
  • Industrial Property Loans – we love to lend on warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities and other industrial properties. Often, these properties are owner occupied by the owner’s business. We also lend on multi-tenant industrial properties as well.

  • Single/Special Use Loans – we have a special lending division that understands small business lending secured by owner occupied businesses such as motels, gas stations, restaurants, car washes, retail stores, and other specialty properties. Many banks have a hard time with this type of lending as they often do not understand the underlying businesses.
  • Investment Property Loans – any and all income producing property will be considered. We are cash flow driven lenders and look for properties that generate positive cash flow for their owners. We will consider portfolios of single family residences under this group.
  • Bridge Loans – many borrowers do not qualify for regular institutional financing due to various short-term obstacles which need to be resolved before they can qualify for bank type financing. These borrowers often require short term loans, or bridge loans, to overcome these short-term problems.
Our company has multiple capital sources for these loans, including: national banks, regional and local banks, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, HUD, insurance companies, Wall Street conduit lenders (CMBS deals), credit unions and private lenders/hedge funds.
