Financing your build-for-rent vision: Myths, realities, & opportunities

Financing your build-for-rent vision: Myths, realities, & opportunities

Want to get the inside scoop on how Build-For-Rent (BFR) transactions are getting done? Our BFR & SFR Practice Group is strategically positioned across the business to finance and sell these specialty communities. (For more information on our Build-for-Rent practice group or to connect with an expert, visit our website.)

As BFR continues to become one of the strongest asset classes in commercial real estate, lenders, builders, and developers are presented with many opportunities. As with any new product though, this rapidly growing market segment has drawn misconceptions as well. In our white paper, we explain the nuances of this type of development, address some common myths, and break down the economics and real-life financing scenarios of this type of transaction. 

The report also covers:

  • Case studies providing real-world examples of how these transactions are getting done, including a $200 million programmatic joint venture and a $51 million capital stack for a BFR acquisition
  • Up-to-date data on collections, occupancy, and rent growth 
  • Insights on construction dynamics within the BFR space
  • Financing options available for this asset class, including terms we're seeing from the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, banks, debt funds, bridge lending programs, and more

We have made understanding BFR easier for you. Download our exclusive report.
