Today’s investing environment is fraught with many pitfalls. Over the last couple years, many multifamily sponsors in particular took on super high leverage with variable rate loans. These same sponsors are now encountering stiff challenges getting loan extensions because of lower occupancy and rental rates combined with higher borrowing costs. As a result, many of these sponsors will have to reach out to their investor bases for more capital or obtain rescue capital to keep their deals afloat. Randy Smith, Founder of Impact Equity, helps investors avoid these traps and invest with sponsors with great track records and sound business plans that are positioned to prosper in this challenging environment.
