Choosing CRE Funds vs Other Lenders

August 21, 2020 • Author: Howard Taylor

With the experience of over forty years and several billion dollars in closings, Griffin’s team is in a unique position to advise clients effectively. Here are the Top 10 reasons why we advise borrowing from a Commercial Real Estate Fund over other lenders:

1. Professionalism

Screening, underwriting, processing, and closing are executed at the highest level.

2. Expert Targeting

Targeted property type and class are specific.

3. Non-Recourse

The majority of all our deals are non-recourse with “bad boy” carveouts and completion guarantees.

4. Expediency

Immediate funding is available, with delivery in as few as 60 days in most cases.

5. Flexibility

Terms are negotiable and customizable to your project’s specific needs.

6. Affordability

Any margin over regulated lender rates is justifiable due to the higher LTC, or LTV being less expensive than equity.

7. Incentive Programs

Grants, tax credits, Pace, TIF and LP Pref investors understood.

8. Accessibility

Nationwide lending in primary, secondary and tertiary markets.

9. Opportunity

Ground up, value add, adaptive reuse, heavy lift, and bridge are all considered.

10. Efficiency

Committee sign-off by only a few signatories makes for seamless transactions.
