Borrowers are finding new ways to pile more permanent debt onto smaller properties. Greystone now offers a mezzanine conduit loan through its commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) lending platform.
“This mezzanine loan product meets a need for capital that is overlooked by traditional providers of mezzanine financing due to the smaller size – yet it’s still a critical component of the capital stack,” said Rob Russell, head of CMBS production at Greystone.
These mezzanine, nonrecourse loans range from as small as $500,000 up to $5 million, and, when paired with permanent financing, can create a loan package that covers up to 85% of the value of a property. Interest only loans are available, with coupon interest rates varying from 12% to 15%, depending on the leverage, market and sponsor.
