    Bridge loans are taking a larger share of the apartment financing market today. Non-recourse debt funds offer apartment buyers higher leverage and lower pricing with a bridge loan. Why is that? Because bridge loans take into account your future NOI- unlike Agency loans that only focus on historical NOI; they provide more flexibility in underwriting and higher loan dollars. Bridge loans can help you acquire the property, provide most of the rehab dollars to increase future NOI with stronger future rents, and allow a flexible exit strategy. These loans are short-term financing solutions and are not permanent solutions; so beware of the quicker maturity. Are you interested in learning more about how Multifamily Syndications work?

    A property manager acts on behalf of the owner in routine tasks such as rent collection, the administration of leases, the scheduling of maintenance and repairs, and, perhaps most importantly, tenant relations. Asset management, by contrast, is concerned with maximizing the revenue potential of each property and identifying new methods of creating longer-term additional value in the asset. These roles are distinct from one another. Jack Langenberg explains what he does as an asset manager for ownership groups. Jack emphasizes that asset managers are applying downward pressure on property managers to do more, which is likely a result of the technological advances made in analytical and data reporting tools in the past two decades.

    Michael explains the LARGEST and COSTLIEST mistake he made in buying multifamily: mismatching his mortgage debt with his business plan. The future is not clear- so you must use past experiences to make future business decisions. Michael thought choosing a longer-term fixed rate loan, with the expectations of interest rates rising in the future, would be a prudent business decision. Unfortunately, it was not. His loan was 10 years…but his business plan was to only keep the property for 3-5 years. Rates remained low and the loan came with a significant prepayment penalty called yield maintenance when they went to sell the apartment building. If he had chosen a shorter loan term with a less onerous pre-payment penalty… he would have saved millions. HE WON'T DO THAT AGAIN!
