2024 Oregon Multifamily Loan and Market Trends

2024 multifamily transaction activity

As the multifamily market adjusts to a more predictable interest rate environment, transaction activities in the Oregon Multifamily Loan market are aligning more closely with historical norms. After several years of unprecedented trading volumes, last year's transactions settled at levels similar to those seen in 2014, a considerable slowdown from the peaks of 2021-2022. This shift has been primarily due to higher interest rates, which expanded the price expectation gap between buyers and sellers and slowed rent growth. Additionally, elevated vacancy rates and increased operating costs have also contributed to this trend, leading many property owners to delay selling and extend their holding periods.

The anticipated flood of properties hitting the market, driven by maturing debts and stricter refinancing rates, did not occur, leaving significant capital allocated for acquiring distressed properties largely unutilized. However, as the market adjusts to the stabilizing but elevated interest rate landscape, the Oregon Apartment Loan market is expected to regain momentum gradually.

Investors, recalling strategies from before the financial crisis, are adapting to a potentially flat or slightly declining interest rate scenario in the coming year. There is substantial capital, both institutional and private, poised for investment, which will aid in price discovery and help bridge the expectation gap. In the Oregon Multifamily Loan market, value creation is becoming a crucial strategy for investors dealing with negative leverage scenarios. Despite cap rates increasing by up to 200 basis points over the past year, they often remain below the cost of debt capital. This situation prompts buyers to seek rapid revenue enhancement through operational improvements, property upgrades, and other strategies, marking a return to traditional investment standards seen before the global financial crisis.

2024 Investment Outlook for Oregon Apartment Loan Market

  • Acquisition Strategies: Last year, about 40 percent of property trades occurred in tertiary markets, which now nearly equals the 45 percent in primary markets. The Oregon Apartment Loan market benefits from reduced supply pressure and cost-of-living driven in-migration, trends expected to continue in 2024 as investors chase yields in smaller cities.
  • Operating Costs: Operating costs are on the rise, with insurance costs up by 120 percent over the last four years due to more frequent and severe natural disasters, increased property values, and higher repair costs. Combined with a 40 percent rise in property taxes since 2018 and escalating labor costs, these factors are squeezing investor margins in the Oregon Multifamily Loan sector.
  • Investor Generation Gap: There is a growing divide between investors who began their careers post-financial crisis, accustomed to a 2.5 percent average 10-year Treasury rate and rent growth above 5 percent, and those who invested during the 90s and early 2000s, who dealt with a 5.5 percent Treasury rate and rent growth around 3.5 percent. This disparity is shaping the strategies of investors and is likely to influence active participants in the Oregon Apartment Loan market this year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is multi-family real estate a good investment in 2024?

Ongoing inflation and high interest rates significantly slowed the pace of the commercial real estate market in 2023. Investors and market experts were hoping for considerable decreases in commercial mortgage rates in 2024. The expectation was that the Fed would get inflation under control and then lower rates. However, as we move into the middle of 2024, inflation is still running higher than the Fed would like. The Fed has hinted that they do not anticipate lowering rates in 2024. In fact, commercial mortgage rates have been steadily rising. Some property types, however, are outperforming others. Apartment buildings in desirable neighborhoods are performing better than other asset classes, as owners have been able to raise rents and keep up with rising interest rates. Multifamily properties in smaller and less desirable areas, or areas where unemployment is rising, are not performing as well, as rent increases are harder to implement. In the office sector, only medical office buildings are generating lender interest. General office properties have underperformed the market as a result of the work from home policies established during the Covid-19 pandemic. Office demand is unlikely to return to pre-Covid levels making the office sector extremely hard to navigate right now. In the retail sector, essential service businesses, such as grocery stores and pharmacies, are performing well, while traditional brick and mortar retailers are still feeling the effects of Covid-19 and the competition from online retailers. Many malls are experiencing record high vacancy levels, and some are being repositioned for other purposes. In the industrial sector, we are seeing strong demand for warehouse and distribution space to accommodate the online retailers. Industrial space in urban markets and close to transportation are performing very well. One positive is that a large number of CMBS loans are coming due in 2024. Even in a high interest rate environment, owners of these properties will have to refinance or sell. This should lead to some activity in the commercial mortgage market in 2024.

 

There are many different types of lenders offering a myriad of different loan products to finance the acquisition or refinance of apartment properties nationwide. These lenders include agency lenders (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), local and national banks, insurance companies, credit unions and private lenders.

Most lenders write apartment loans for five, seven or ten years (fixed) with a 30 year amortization. It is also possible to obtain loans that are fixed for up to 30 years, although this is not the norm. Rates are typically based on a margin over the corresponding US Treasury rate.

Lenders offer non-recourse to strong borrowers and solid properties. The borrower will be expected to have strong credit, good net worth and liquidity, and experience owning and managing similar properties. The property will be expected to demonstrate solid long term positive cash flow, be in good to excellent condition, and be located in a strong market with low vacancy rates.

Apartment loans are typically screened and pre-approved in 2-3 days. Since lenders require appraisals, environmental and property condition reports, and title, closings will usually take 45-60 days from application.

Recent Banking Failures Likely To Impact Oregon Multifamily Lending

The recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank has sent shockwaves through the business and real estate lending sectors. As a leading OR commercial mortgage broker with over 30+ years of experience, Select Commercial knows that the multifamily sector is not immune to these developments. Here's how these banking failures could impact multifamily lending:


Regional Banks Under Pressure

Regional banks, which provide significant liquidity to the apartment sector, are likely to face increased pressure. The collapse of SVB and Signature Bank has raised concerns about the stability of smaller banks. This could lead to a pullback from regional banks providing loans to the multifamily sector, making it more challenging for developers and investors to secure financing.


Development Challenges

Developers could face significant challenges, particularly in securing construction loans and value-add renovation dollars. The current environment is leading to a slowdown in construction lending and a return to traditional underwriting and banker skepticism. This could particularly impact the affordable housing sector, where developers need their financing lined up to secure tax credits.


Volatility in the CMBS Market

CMBS loans have experienced turbulence following the bank failures. This volatility could impact a new crop of lenders that have emerged over the past half-decade, many of which are capital markets-dependent. If the securitization market stabilizes, some of the CMBS and bridge lenders may re-enter the market to fill the liquidity gaps left by regional lenders.


Interest Rate Uncertainty

The bank failures could also contribute to uncertainty around commercial mortgage rates. If these failures lead to a slowdown in rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, this could potentially benefit the commercial real estate market in the long run. However, it's too early to predict the exact impact on apartment transaction volume.


In summary, the recent banking failures have the potential to significantly impact how banks handle multifamily loans. We will closely monitoring these developments to provide the best advice and service to my clients during these uncertain times.
