Connect Media conducts Finance Q&A with Nate Prouty

Nate Prouty, co-managing director of NorthMarq’s San Francisco office, which completed $1.42 billion in financing across 50 transactions in 2018, spoke to Connect Media to discuss financing trends he noticed in his transactions as well as predictions for 2019 based on an equally strong pipeline for the first quarter.

What are the big trends you are tracking in the finance sector this year?
Availability of capital. With respect to the capital markets overall, both life companies and the agencies are expecting stable to rising supply of funds for 2019. Commercial banks, largely due to the perceived late stage in the cycle, continue to curtail their construction activity in 2019. Much of this void has been filled by debt funds. This capital source has been a large source of growth in our origination activity. The CMBS markets, with “loss retention” now fully in place, had another solid year and the number of players seems stable at this point.

One of the biggest trends we’re tracking is the availability of construction financing for projects in the pipeline for 2019. Following a steady trend of annual construction cost increases the last several years due to competition for labor and rising material costs, developers are increasingly having to get more creative in their approach to project financing. While equity investors may be willing to place equity in new projects in core markets at a return on cost below five percent based on optimistic future rent growth expectations, which can often translate into a potentially under-leveraged project using traditional lender exit underwriting. If lenders are not able to underwrite rent growth assumptions in line with historical trends, the resulting loan will fall significantly short in terms of desired leverage—in some cases below 50 percent loan-to-cost (LTC).

NorthMarq Capital’s San Francisco office was featured in GlobeSt.com for the refinancing of two amenity-rich apartments. Jeffrey Weidell, president, Nate Prouty, senior vice president, and Andrew Slaton, vice president of NorthMarq Capital arranged financing for the borrower, Prometheus Real Estate Group, through its correspondent relationship with a life insurance company.Timberleaf Apartments at 2147 Newhall St. and Alderwood Apartments at 900 Pepper Tree Lane received refinance loans totaling $93 million. The new senior mortgage loans allowed the borrower to lock in historically low interest rates while benefiting from a period of interest-only payments for part of the loan term.

Prouty tells GlobeSt.com: “Both properties were constructed by Prometheus in the late 1980s and have undergone substantial upgrades over the last decade with a rolling renovation of unit interiors and modernizations of the clubhouse and amenities. Prometheus is an owner-operator in Silicon Valley, particularly in Santa Clara, where it has nine communities with nearly 3,000 units, including the 1,000-unit Mansion Grove project and recently completed new construction of the 289-unit Hearth Apartments one block from Alderwood.”
