The quarterly loan officer roundtable is an internal discuss with some of the loan officers at Old Capital on what is working or not working with lending. Jonathan Ferrell is introduced to the listeners. Jonathan joined Old Capital as a Senior Director. Jonathan has over 14 years in banking and is an expert on financing commercial real estate. James Eng gives us macro-economic feedback on how some of the different apartment markets are doing in Texas and the nation. Ricardo Hinojosa shares the importance of property management and getting them engaged early in the transaction. Looking at rental comps in the submarket and then building a an initial rehab budget early on with a qualified property management company, can save a ton of time on a deal that may not work. Ricardo goes onto explain some REFINANCE CASH OUT GUIDELINES for Freddie Mac Small Balance loans. Dave Walls talks about the challenges with affordable housing. Jonathan Ferrell stresses the importance of having the right budget numbers upfront when you apply for the loan because if it is slightly off your reimbursements for draws will have an impact. Check and double check your budget numbers, please. Les Meisl speaks about underwriting guidelines with Freddie Mac Small Balance and the MAXIMUM loan leverage you can expect for a refinance- cash out or even a purchase. Smaller, remote cities in the US can have lower leverage requirements than larger cities. Meaning, max leverage in Chicago will be 80%, but max leverage in Tupelo, Mississippi is 70% with Freddie Mac. One size of town will not fit all! Make sure you contact us to find out what the maximum leverage you can expect.
