Frequently Asked Questions
Is multi-family real estate a good investment in 2023?
Inflation fears, high interest rates, and the prospect of recession have slowed the pace of the commercial real estate market considerably. Some property types are outperforming others. Apartment buildings in desirable neighborhoods are performing well, 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. We expect to see sales prices for underperforming properties to drop in 2023 as investors gravitate to better positioned properties.
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 California 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 CA 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.
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.
