Commercial Apartment Building Loan dilemmas: some real client case studies resolved by us.

Case Study 1 – A cash out scenario

An apartment building owner structured in a corporation was exploring as to how refinancing options could help him realize some hard cash for a building he had owned for the past 10 years in Minnesota. Originally bought for $2 million, it had realized significant appreciation over the past 10 years. Also, our client emphasized that the property represented most of his net worth so this was a pivotal point in his investment strategy. He was dependent on us for a viable solution and we took the responsibility seriously. The results were truly gratifying as we fully cashed out the asset for him with 80% loan to current value coming to over $5 million. We also set the property on a 10-year fixed, very competitive rate, a 30-year amortization, and no personal guarantee from the owner. The borrower applied the cash to the purchase of another building.

Case Study 2 – Speed, speed, and more speed

A borrower representing a partnership arrangement came to us looking for the acquisition of a $12.5 million apartment building in Chicago where speed was of the essence. The seller was particularly difficult, insisting on the deal closing within 30 days, failing which there were big losses looming: our client would forfeit his earnest money and the property purchase opportunity would dissolve at the same time. They say, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” – well, there’s none tougher in the lending paradigm than Clopton: we arranged a bridge loan that closed within 2 weeks of meeting the client for an all-around happy result. This case study represents what we do best – pull out all the stops out when the chips are down. One of the most important aspects emerging from this apartment building loan was low upfront closing cost and no prepayment of exit fees based on the anticipated speedy conversion to a permanent leveraging arrangement. This saved the borrower a significant capital outlay.

Case Study 3 – Conversion opportunity

A client owning all units in a condo development save four, required funds to purchase the same and then convert the property into an all-for-rent building. The borrower understood the convoluted nature of his request considering that his structure – a Delaware corporation – was seeking a multifamily advance for an apartment building to be but not there right now. We found a commercial lender that saw the bigger picture perfectly and so provided a funding built around a 5-year fixed rate, 30-year amortization that recognized the equity value in the condo units our client owned. Bottom line: it allowed the borrower to acquire the additional units, get them rented, and operate the building as a standard apartment building as originally visualized.
