Hey CRE Monkeys...

I know that not only are there numerous buy-side CRE guys but there are a few brokers out there. I'd love to start a forum where brokers and sponsors can preview their deals and investors can post their criteria. I think it would be a great way to leverage the power of WSO. I'll kick it off...

Top tier capital advisory - is that JLL/CBRE/CW or HFF/Eastdil?

Apr 13, 2018

More along the lines of the latter two - not going to spill beans over the web out in the open. We maintain a relatively low profile. PM me if there's an opportunity or a synergy you think is worth discussing in private.

Firm: Mid-sized developer based in the Southeast

Product: Multifamily and office development

Deal Size: $25M-$100M, with most falling into the $30M-$50M range

Acceptable Locations: All Southeast (Nashville, Atlanta, Richmond, Charlotte, Raleigh, Charleston)

Work with Partners: Work with all sorts of LPs - family office & institutional

Deals: Hesitant to get deal specific, but will happily share a range of expected returns / development spreads we are seeing.

  • Ground-Up Suburban Multifamily - 6.75% to 7.00% RoC | 1.50% spread
  • Ground-Up Infill Multifamily - 6.00% to 6.25% RoC | 1.00% to 1.25% spread
  • Ground-Up Suburban Office - 8.00% to 8.50% RoC | 1.25% to 1.50% spread
  • Ground-Up CBD Office - 7.25% to 7.75% RoC | 1.50% spread

Obviously, based on above, it is tough to make the numbers work on infill multi. Seriously do not understand how some of those deals get done.

Larry, does your shop develop in Florida?

Apr 18, 2018

No way, Jose

Sell-side at top 3 brokerage shop. Florida focused. Mainly focus on multifamily - everything from investment sales to equity placement to agency loan intermediary. Average deal size for investment sales is roughly $50mm.

I am currently marketing a JV equity opportunity to invest LP capital in a luxury for-rent multifamily highrise development on the west coast of Florida. At an 85%/15% split, LP equity check is roughly $23mm. Sponsor has construction loan term-sheet in hand at L+275bps pricing.
