Finding the appropriate funding solution in today’s real estate lending market

Securing a loan is no a longer a matter of picking up the phone. Despite positive indications of lending in today’s market, banks remain reluctant to finance new customers, favouring established client relationships instead. As a result, proactively establishing the right debt financing to fulfill your strategy is critical.

Finding the right debt solution and capital structure requires a detailed review of possible alternatives. Our Real Estate Debt Advisory group can assist you with finding appropriate funding solutions whether you are:

  • Refinancing existing facilities
  • Making an acquisition
  • Implementing a capital-intensive strategic project
  • Facing a period of instability, where covenants or debt service are at risk and renegotiations with current financial stakeholders are necessary
  • Considering diversification of your lending base
  • Managing your credit rating process
