CHICAGO, March 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mag Mile Capital is pleased to announce Rushi ShahDirector and CEO, Francisco NacordaSVP of Originations, and Prabhat Jayara, Vice President of Capital Markets recently held a total of $18,600,000 through two-year loans for three Ohio airport hotels negatively affected by the pandemic. The recently refurbished properties were acquired through a short-term bridge loan which allows the sponsor to ramp up performance until it is ready for permanent financing. Mag Mile Capital is a boutique-sized company that provides nationwide preferred access to highly leveraged, non-recourse commercial real estate bridge loans and permanent mortgages with drawdowns for hotels, l self-storage, multi-family, industrial, commercial, office and other commercial real estate.

“Unfortunately, these business hotels were located in an airport submarket heavily impacted by a lack of business travelers due to the pandemic,” said Rushi Shah. “Although the renovations have been completed, the properties simply haven’t had time to get back up and running and support a permanent loan before the existing loan matures, so we were asked to help. Using a established relationship with the existing lender, we ensured that the loan would be repaid and guaranteed Mag Mile Capital some extra time to find a suitable lender.In one case, we were able to leverage our pre-existing relationship with the previous lender from the sponsor to negotiate a short-term extension until we close the new bridge loan.”

Mag Mile Capital: SpringHill Suites, TownePlace Suites and Courtyard by Marriott

• Address: 80 keys at 665 Taylor Road and 94 keys at 695 Taylor Road, Columbus, Ohio, located near Columbus Airport; 154 keys at 7345 Engle Road, Middleburg Heights, Ohiolocated near Cleveland Airport
• Total loan amount: $18,600,000
• Interest rate: variable rate loan with an interest rate cap
• Amortization: interest only
• Loan terms: 24 months with extension options
Type of investor: Two different regional hotel owners and developers
Closing dates: December 20, 2021 and January 27, 2022

“The Cleveland transaction presented specific timing challenges as it was a Ten-X auction deal with a tight deadline,” said Francisco Nacorda. “But in the end, we were able to close the financing before the new maturity, structuring the loan in a positive way for all parties involved. With interest reserve for the next 12 months, no DSCR tests for the first 24 months, no – recourse, and a limited minimum interest period so that the loan can refinance into cheaper permanent debt – as soon as the properties begin to show renewed vigor and customer support.”

“Courtyard was acquired by Midwest Lodging Group,” Prabhat Jayara said, “while Springhill and Towneplace were refinanced for Helix Hospitality, both from the same lender.”

  • You can now apply for a mortgage at select Walmart stores, after partnering with Lenders One.

  • The typical Walmart buyer makes $80,000 a year and could be outrageously priced in today’s housing market.

  • Mortgage applications are falling as interest rates rise and some Americans are denied homeownership.


At Walmart, you can buy anything from Golden Girls-themed Chia Pet to ethically sourced dog nail polish — and now you can get a mortgage, too.

Lenders One Cooperative, a national alliance of independent mortgage bankers, banks and credit unions, recently announced a partnership with Walmart. The co-op will lease space in select stores in an effort to offer more mortgage solutions to shoppers. Currently operating in three locations, Lenders One says “there are many more opportunities to come”.

“I couldn’t be happier with the direction the co-op is taking,” Justin Demola, Lenders One CMB and President said in a statement, adding that his team already sees “tremendous” value in the solutions created for its members.

The typical Walmart shopper in the United States earns around $80,000 a year. With recent mortgage rate hikes and assuming a borrower would have to spend 30% of their income buying a home, chances are it will be overpriced in today’s market, where the average home price is $392,000. So while Walmart’s low offers may offer customers a discount on purchases, the convenience of Lenders One’s in-store offices cannot guarantee that they will be able to afford homeownership.

Historically low mortgage rates propelled a home-buying frenzy during the pandemic – but they are now reversing. As rates return to pre-pandemic levels and house prices continue to rise, affordability has hit an all-time low. Mortgage applications have mostly been down since December, so while Lenders One offers borrowers a convenient lending experience by locating inside Walmart, mortgage application may not fit the same budget. than buyers’ milk and coffee.

“For consumers, rising interest rates, lack of supply and strong house price appreciation have reduced refinancing activity and further limited the affordability of buying a home. which, of course, dampens lenders’ expectations of future business activity,” Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae senior vice president and chief economist, said in a statement.

Fewer and fewer Americans are applying for a mortgage

Pandemic-era mortgage deals are over as interest rates rise due to inflation. Rising rates could prevent many cash-strapped Americans from becoming homeowners.

In February, mortgage rates reached their highest level since the start of the pandemic and have been fluctuating ever since. Although rates fell slightly last week, they are still significantly higher than the same time in 2021. According to Freddie Mac, the average US fixed rate for a 30-year mortgage fell to 3.76% for the week ending March 3. a year ago at this time, the rate averaged 3.02%.

“Rate hikes are expected to continue due to a strong labor market and high inflation, which will likely negatively impact demand from homebuyers,” Sam Khater, chief economist at Freddie Mac at Insider.

In February, the median sale price of a home hit an all-time high of $392,000, according to Realtor.com. During the month, home prices rose at an “exceptionally fast” rate, the researchers said, signaling that competition among homebuyers will intensify this spring. As buyers compete for a limited amount of inventory, prices should continue to rise, especially if mortgage rates rise further.

“It can be easy to get carried away by the competition, so buyers should take the time to assess how higher mortgage rates might impact the affordability of monthly payments and consider adding a cushion to the top of their budget.” George Ratiu, Director of Economic Research and Senior Economist at Realtor.com, said.

United States: the Californian property management company AvantStay has announced the closure of a $500m PropCo funding round led by real estate advisory and asset management firm, Saluda quality.

As a result of the transaction, the newly created PropCo fund will acquire real estate assets worth $500 million, meaning that Saluda Grade will own the income-generating real estate. [homes] and AvantStay will serve as property manager. The move accelerates the institutionalization of a burgeoning asset class in the short-term rental segment, known as securitization.

This is Saluda Grade’s first foray into the short-term rental space, having secured 12 securitizations worth over $2 billion in the past 12 months across the asset classes of single-family and multi-family dwellings, although it participated in AvantStay’s most recent Series B funding round in December. which raised $160 million.

The increase jointly benefits Saluda Grade and AvantStay, with the former identifying alternative lending sectors in need of institutional capital to fuel growth, while the latter will use the funding to expand into new markets and strengthen its rental property portfolio short term. AvantStay currently operates over 1,000 premier vacation rental homes in over 100 cities across the United States and Cabo San Lucas [Mexico].

Sean Breuner, Founder and CEO of AvantStay, said, “AvantStay continues to break down barriers for the short-term rental industry. With this new capital and our partnership with Saluda Grade, we will pioneer and institutionalize a new asset class that will inevitably pave the way for travelers to have a better experience and for investors to generate attractive returns.

“I couldn’t be prouder of the whole team for what we’ve achieved over the past few months, as this news follows our announcement of Series B in December. Our accelerated growth shows that there is a deep understanding of our offering.

“With Saluda Grade as our instrumental partner, we will continue to fulfill our brand mission and provide groups with thoughtful and elevated experiences,” he added.

Ryan Craft, Founder and CEO of Saluda Grade, said, “We believe AvantStay’s dynamic and rapidly growing customer base makes them the ideal partner for our business to finally enter the thriving short-term rental space. We were attracted to their higher yielding product and differentiated sourcing channels, and we are confident that they will continue to lead the industry with their strong offering of hospitality, technology, design and real estate in as an all-in-one package.

Fiona Quinn, AvantStay’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Affairs, said, “AvantStay’s focus on engaging with local communities and following their regulations enables communities to get the most out of tax revenue, direct and indirect job growth, as well as tourism dollars directed to local small businesses.

“Our investment in our proprietary operating and experience platform protects the character of the community. Our partnerships with local regulators and community groups allow us to meet the highest operating standards and ensure that plans AvantStay’s growth plans align with those of our communities,” she added.

Since its inception in 2017, AvantStay had raised approximately $186 million in funding, prior to the latest transaction.

The creation of the PropCo fund is part of a broader trend where more and more institutional investors are venturing into the frenetic short-term rental sector to buy real estate [rental homes] as they look for alternative investments that will help them capitalize on a post-pandemic travel boom.

One such company – Ohio-based real estate investment firm ReAlpha – announced last June that it planned to spend up to $1.5 billion, including debt, to acquire a portfolio of 5 000 short-term rental units in US cities such as Austin, Dallas and Miami. ReAlpha has since raised up to $75 million in a public offering to expand its rental housing inventory.

Institutional investment in the hotel space through REITs [REITs] is already a fairly old phenomenon, but the rise of Airbnb and the growing maturation of the short-term rental segment has pushed more entrepreneurs into the short-term rental space, where they believe they can earn better returns. than in other more traditional asset classes.

The Cleveland Plain Dealership published an op-ed last week asking (implying?) outgoing Senator Rob Portman to reconsider his decision to step down from office. The editorial cited “how ugly the Republican primary is” for the senator’s seat, writing, “Perhaps you see, as we do, in this 2022 Ohio Republican primary contest for your seat, a continuation of this descent into darkness for a once proud party.”

OK, so a single editorial is fine, I guess. Even one who ignores the reality that a Portman administration would not be much different from one led by Josh Mandel or JD Vance, at least from a legislative context. (A reminder that Portman voted with Trump more than 88% of the time.)

But then things got…weird.

After the editorial, Chris Quinn, Editor-in-Chief and Vice President of Content for the Ordinary Merchant and Cleveland.com, published an open letter asking readers to email Portman and ask him to reconsider his retirement. (Portman, for his part, didn’t waver in his decision.)
