REBusiness Online interviews Jeffrey Weidell: Borrowers get creative while lenders get conservative in this elongated cycle

Jeffrey Weidell, president of NorthMarq, recognizes there is still plenty of money out there to sustain activity levels in 2019. He also recognizes, however, that lenders are becoming prudent in this extra-long real estate cycle.

This has caused borrowers to flex their creative muscles as they fund their projects in the interim period between redevelopment and sale. Weidell notes that bridge financing is extremely active and popular, with many borrowers doing what they can to leverage the entire capital stack as we wait to see where this market is headed.
