Queens Multifamily Loan Information
Move-Ins by Technology Firms Foretell New Multifamily Renter Demand; Investors Respond to Legislative Reforms
New tenant leases outpace supply, keeping vacancy near its lowest practical level. An expanding technology presence in Queens, with Amazon, Google and Facebook opening sizable offices in the near future, will help continue diversifying the apartment market’s economy. The new job opportunities will add to the metro’s extensive housing needs, both within Queens and across the surrounding boroughs. While the market is poised to welcome new sources of renter demand, the pace of multifamily completions is moderating. Fewer apartment units will open in 2020 than in any year since 2015. Though many apartments will arrive in Queens, Brooklyn will receive the largest share of multifamily deliveries, as has been the case for the past three years. Across all five boroughs, reduced supply growth will keep vacancy at a near-20-year low of 1.5 percent this year. Virtually full occupancy is contributing to higher apartment rent growth among market-rate units. That trend may be aided by declining competition from new value-add multifamily projects as recently imposed restrictions have effectively halted the conversion of rent-regulated multifamily units to market-rate apartments. Investors looking to purchase property in the Queens market should definitely look into taking out an apartment loan to finance their acquisition.
New regulations foster uncertainty for a major segment of the investment landscape. The New York multifamily market enters 2020 in a state of flux following the enactment of new legislation governing rent-regulated apartments in June of last year. While the city remains an active commercial real estate investment destination, transaction velocity declined markedly during the second half of 2019, likely stemming from rent reform. Multiple avenues for converting rent-stabilized apartment units to market rates have been repealed and the financial feasibility to conduct capital improvements has been hampered. Many investors of these multifamily assets will most likely have to reevaluate their strategies. Some will shift their focus toward unregulated newer assets or apartment properties with a mixed-use component. Cap rates on trades completed since the legislation change have faced upward pressure largely driven by slackened buyer demand in the face of uncertainty. Queens is a great market for investors to finance their next apartment purchase with a multifamily loan.

Vacancy in Queens will remain unchanged at 1.5 percent as supply and demand maintain virtual parity.
Rent in Queens is up 2.4%. The average effective rent will climb to $2,833 per month, dipping from last year’s 3.1 percent growth rate.
Investment opportunities in Queens remain strong for those looking to finance their next purchase with an apartment loan. Institutions remain active in Queens and the western edges of Brooklyn and Queens, while private investors are moving farther east to neighborhoods such as Bushwick. We highly recommend any investors looking to buy in the Queens market to reach out to us regarding a multifamily loan.

Apartment Loan Trends in 2020
At the start of 2020 the market outlook did not indicate any significant factors that would cause major trouble in the multifamily market. Market indicators suggested that demand for housing, especially for apartment rentals, would remain healthy, thus continuing to generate new construction of multifamily buildings. Both the high number of permits and starts over the past couple of years led experts to believe that developer confidence is very high in the multifamily market. Market experts predicted an annual completion of 340,000 apartment units over 2020, way above the 300,000-annual average for the past five years. Over the last couple of years, the multifamily market has seen absorptions outperform expectations due to both changes in lifestyle and demographic preferences and new supply has consistently taken longer to be built. These two factors have helped the market to perform stronger than expected in the past and should continue throughout this year. Market data indicated that rent growth would remain strong in 2020, growing 3.6% (which is above the historical average). In terms of mortgage origination, low interest rates and strong multifamily performance were expected to help loan volumes grow. Experts predicted that the origination volume in 2020 will increase by 5.7% to $390 billion. Market data indicated that cap rates have more room to decline, which would lead to increasing property values and should drive up origination volume. However, with the current outbreak of Covid-19, the overall economy has been in flux. The stock market has crashed and commercial mortgage interest rates have been severely impacted. Huge metros such as New York have all but shut down much economic activity and entertainment. In this unsteady climate, many investors are scared to purchase commercial real estate and to take out commercial mortgages and apartment loans. Additionally, the oil industry has taken a big hit. Not only are people traveling less due to the pandemic, foreign countries like China and Russia are involved in a huge price war which is driving the price of oil way down. Experts are hopeful that as the weather warms up and public health policy learns how to handle this pandemic, the economy should revert back to its pre-virus strength.
What Happened with Apartment Loans in 2019
The multifamily market ended the 2019 year on a high note. Despite increased levels of new units entering the market, the apartment sector maintained strong and steady growth throughout the year. Vacancy rates throughout the country remained fairly stable, easing investors’ concerns of a significant decline in occupancy due to the high sum of multifamily units delivered. Furthermore, rent growth on the national and metropolitan levels remained healthy throughout the year. While 2019 rent growth was more modest than 2018, it was in line with 2016 and 2017 levels and remained above the national historic average of 3.4%. Based on data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, multifamily completions increased slightly in 2019 when compared with 2018. The data also show that reported permit growth has increased 3% and starts are up 2%. Although 2019 data is not yet fully complete, these metrics suggest that the supply will remain elevated over the next few years. In terms of multifamily mortgage origination, the most up to date information has surpassed expectations. Mortgage Bankers Association reported that the 2018 mortgage volume came in at about $339 billion, an increase of 18.9% from 2017. While the actual 2019 numbers will not be available until later this year, experts estimate that due to solid fundamentals, low interest rates and heightened demand for multifamily investments, the total origination volume last year was about $369 billion.
The 2019 economy thrived overall. Throughout the year 2.1 million jobs were added which were in line with 2017 number (although it fell short of the 2018 total of 2.7 million). The unemployment rate also continued to decrease in 2019 as it went down 50 basis points to 3.5% at the end of the year. This number matched the lowest unemployment rate in fifty years. The labor market heavily supported increased salaries, as indicated by the 2.8% annual growth in the Employment Cost Index as of September of 2019. While these gains were below the expected amount for a market with such a low unemployment rate they were above the average for the past decade. At the beginning of the year many investors were concerned due to expectations of a recession. There were many indicators that supported this concern such as inverted two and ten year yield curves, an unanticipated rise in the June unemployment rate of ten basis points, an unstable stock market and slowed job growth. However, during the third and fourth quarters of 2019, the economy improved as job growth rose, the unemployment rate fell. This economic improvement has had a clear impact on the multifamily market as more investors are feeling bullish on putting their money into this asset class.
