Rescue Capital Lines Up for Opportunities on Multifamily Properties


June 13, 2023

Across the U.S., apartment investors who paying floating-rate construction or bridge loans are now struggling to keep up with interest payments that have often doubled. New permanent financing may help, but permanent lenders rarely offer enough to fully pay off a property’s existing loan.

Help may be on the way. Private equity investors are eagerly lining “rescue capital” for these properties—but there’s a catch.

Rescue capital—often offered as preferred equity—is structured as a loan with its own high interest rates. Even properties with strong income from rents can only support so much debt, and the proceeds from a permanent loan and preferred equity still typically fall short. If they want to keep their properties, that means many borrowers will simply have to contribute more equity.
