Private Money: Rate Range of 12%-14%

As financial markets continue to be unpredictable, an increasing number of individuals are looking towards alternative investment options. Private money loans are a valuable opportunity for those seeking to minimize risk and attain financial growth, as they offer short-term flexibility.

Debt Funds & Bridge Lenders: Rate Range of 8.50% – 10.50%

Debt funds have gained popularity among investors due to their competitive interest rates and convenience. They present a great opportunity for leveraging and generating high returns, particularly when investing in properties that have the potential for added value, such as buildings or land.

CMBS: Rate Range of 5.75%-7.25%

Although there has been a slowdown in CMBS loan activity, experts are forecasting a rebound in the market as rates stabilize.

Commercial Banks: Rate Range of 7.50%-9.00%

Traditional banks are modifying their lending practices to stay competitive amidst the volatile market conditions. While some projects are still underway, the focus has shifted towards development, refinancing, and rehabilitation. To maintain stability, banks are being more selective in their underwriting processes and may prioritize established clients over new ones when considering potential investments.

Credit Unions:  Rate Range of 6.50% – 8.00%

Credit unions generally provide lower rates compared to other lenders, but they also use a more aggressive lending approach. It’s worth noting that their thorough global underwriting process may lead to longer closing times, especially in the current market.

Fannie & Freddie: Rate Range of 5.50% – 7.25%

Despite the ongoing market turmoil, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac transactions continue to thrive. We anticipate that there will be sustained interest in agency options in the future, as investors reassess their strategies.

FHA: Rate Range of 5.00% -6.00%

The rising interest rates of FHA loans in commercial real estate create an opportunity for borrowers to transition smoothly from construction and bridge loans. This is particularly beneficial for those who are seeking financial stability.

Life Company: Rate Range of 6.0%-7.5%
