Apartment Loans – Small Balance Loans

Apartment loans with loan balances the size of those categorized as Small Balance Loans have been traditionally hard to come by in the ‘new’ economy, especially those with loan amounts from $1 million to $5 million and having interest rates below 5%.  However, today commercial real estate investors who specialize in investing in apartment buildings and smaller apartment complexes now have an outlet that allows them to obtain apartment loans that can be below 3% on amortizations of 25 years!

Apartment Loans – Refinance

Apartment loan refinance in the small balance loan category are becoming increasingly attractive to investors under this new loan program.  For a rate and term refinance of an existing small balance apartment loan real estate investors can expect interest rates which start as low as 2.875% with fixed periods up to 10 years and amortization periods up to 25 years.

With apartment loan rates this low refinancing may even make since if there is a prepayment penalty involved.  With loans where the rate is over 5% and/or may have a shorter amortization period, the monthly cash flow created by the payment savings is so significant that paying the penalty and refinancing to the lower rate is a no brainer.
