Rate Locking a Multifamily Agency Loan

As a result of continued strong demand for multifamily acquisitions in the U.S., capitalization rates being paid by investors can easily be equal to or less than debt constants on multifamily agency loans. For example, if you are purchasing a property in a high demand market you might need to acquire the property at a capitalization rate at or below 5%. In today’s interest rate environment (June 2019), your debt constant for a market rate non-green certified property could easily exceed the purchase capitalization rate by 1% (5.75% to 6.00%).

Once your financing has been approved and you have received your loan commitment, there is a broad laundry list of items that warrant your attention. We’ve highlighted a few of those that sometimes can cause closing indigestion if not handled properly: Payoff notification to current lender: Most commercial real estate loans mandate payoff notification of between 30 and 60 days.
