Josh Fuller Speaking at CRE Finance Council’s Commercial Real Estate Finance Summit in Santa Monica, CA

Josh Fuller, Director at Pensam Funding, will be participating in a panel discussion during the Commercial Real Estate Finance Council’s (CREFC) Commercial Real Estate Finance Summit in Santa Monica, CA on May 9, 2018.

Mr. Fuller will be featured in panel titled “B-Piece Investing: Evaluation of Long-Term Risk. v. Reward”.  Discussion topics include:

  • How has increased investor demand repriced the risk appetite? Is demand alone driving the high level of liquidity in deep credit CMBS including single-B and below bonds?
  • Has the lack of supply in one market (CMBS) turned to a surplus in others (CLO / Freddie)? Has it made people pivot their investment thesis?
  • How has underwriting changed this late in the cycle on new issuance? Has there been a divergence in underwriting standards between CMBS and the Agencies? How do you look at deals differently knowing that you are the B buyer? How are groups pricing in risk for 5+ years with the speed of the deterioration of specific asset classes and markets over the last 5 years?
  • Market share – self scout? Where is the comfort level in exposure? How have previous successes and failures affected your investment thesis going forward?

Other panelists include:

Darren Gluck, Head of B-Piece Acquisitions, Silverpeak Argentic
Jordan May, CMBS Investments, Prime Finance
Julio Siberio, Vice President, CMBS Portfolio Manager, PIMCO

Pensam Completes $19.5 M Bridge Loan for 760-Unit Multifamily Portfolio

Pensam Funding has made a $19.5 million bridge loan to facilitate the acquisition and renovation of a 760-unit, six-property portfolio with assets located in Atlanta, GA and Pensacola, FL (the “Portfolio”). The 2-year fixed rate loan was structured to meet the Borrower’s unique requirements, including mechanisms allowing the Borrower to draw down on $3 million of additional proceeds to support the Portfolio’s capital investment program and collateral release provisions that enable the sale of assets within the Portfolio during the term of the bridge loan.

“We remain extremely active in providing flexible and quick capital solutions to real estate sponsors,” said Michael Stein, Founding Partner. “This is another example of how Pensam Funding tailors financing solutions to meet the unique needs of our clients and help support their pursuit of value-add strategies, lease-up opportunities, recapitalizations, partially completed construction projects and other transitional situations.”

While traditionally focused on multifamily properties, Pensam Funding also considers lending opportunities in senior housing, manufactured housing, land and other real estate sectors. Pensam’s loans range in duration from six months to five years.

Pensam Closes Preferred Equity Investment for the Acquisition of a 600-Unit Multifamily Property in Denver, CO

Pensam announced that it recently closed on a preferred equity investment to facilitate the acquisition of a 600-unit multifamily community located in Denver, CO.  Pensam’s preferred equity investment was structured behind Freddie Mac senior debt financing.  The sponsor, a repeat Pensam client, is an experienced California-based real-estate investment firm focusing on core-plus and value-add real estate acquisitions across the United States.

“Pensam is excited to work with this sponsor on another transaction and further expand its presence into the Denver Metro area with this preferred equity investment,” said Michael Stein, founding partner of Pensam.

The multifamily community is located on a 48-acre low density site in southeast Denver, just north of the I-225/I-25 junction and within five minutes of the Denver Tech Center, the largest employment center in the Denver Metro. The property was constructed in three phases between 1970 and 1974, and features two and three-story buildings with seven unique floorplans consisting of one, two and three-bedroom units.  The previous owner commenced renovations on select units, with upgraded units featuring stainless steel appliances, faux wood flooring, private balconies or patios, and walk-in closets.  Property amenities include a free-standing clubhouse, business center, dog park, fitness center, heated swimming pool, basketball court, volleyball court, sports fields, playground, splash park, dog park and picnic areas with grill stations. Pensam’s preferred equity investment allows the sponsor to allocate additional funding towards its capital improvement plan, focused primarily on amenity upgrades, as well as deferred maintenance.

Pensam Completes Preferred Equity Investment for the Acquisition of an 85-Unit Multifamily Property in Jackson, WY

Pensam announced the completion of a preferred equity investment to facilitate the acquisition of an 85-unit multifamily community in Jackson, Wyoming.  Pensam’s preferred equity investment was structured behind Freddie Mac senior debt financing.  The sponsor is an experienced private equity investment and development group specializing in multi-family housing, condominiums and ski area management.

“Pensam’s preferred equity investment presents a strong opportunity to further expand its presence into the Rocky Mountain region and enter a market with an extremely high barrier to entry,” said Michael Stein, founding partner of Pensam.

The property features studio, one, and two-bedroom units with spacious floorplans in Downtown Jackson.  The Town of Jackson is the only incorporated municipality in Teton County’s wealthy Jackson Hole valley enclave.  In addition to being home to world-renowned ski resorts and arts organizations, Jackson is a major gateway for millions of tourists visiting nearby Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks each year.

The vast majority of multifamily properties in the market have in-place affordability restrictions on more than 20% of units.  This multifamily community is one of the few market-rate properties in Jackson, and has benefited from strong and stable performance with average vacancy rates hovering at just under one percent over the last twelve months.
