Commercial Real Estate Lending Seminar

Jun 13, 2024 | Livestream Seminar

Real estate lending is often the most difficult type of lending to do correctly. There are numerous challenges in financing real estate, not the least of which is understanding the various types of real estate and the embedded risk. This seminar walks through underwriting and structure of construction financing, investment real estate, owner occupied real estate, multifamily, residential development, as well as specialty use.

This is a foundational class that does require experience in understanding financial statements, basic loan structuring as well as credit analysis skills.

Participants will review in detail, the new construction process, title work, appraisals, environment reports, draw requests, and early warning signs of trouble in your project or borrower.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduction to various real estate types and the risk they carry.

  • Understanding the financial information that borrowers provide as well as the various documents that you are required to have to completely review the project.

  • How to develop an organized process to correctly stage the underwriting, analysis and receipt of title work, appraisal, and other documents needed to successfully complete the financing.

  • How to build the right financing structure to mitigate and balance the risk between the borrower and the bank.

  • Real estate lending pitfalls to avoid.

  • How to manage the draw process in new construction.
