Getting Funded In Syndication: How do commercial real estate syndicators successfully get through the lending process?

Recently, Aline Capital’s Scott Williams spoke on The Real Estate Syndication Show hosted by Whitney Sewell. Scott shared tips for commercial real estate investors and syndicators on how to effectively navigate the lending process. As Managing Director of commercial real estate debt and equity, Scott deals extensively with clients and lenders in this world. As a successful real estate investor and syndicator, Mr. Sewell asked many helpful questions for both experienced and first-time investors.

Key takeaways from the podcast include:

  • SKIN IN THE GAME. As a syndicator, don’t openly announce that to the lender!
  • PREPAYMENT PENALTY. Managing this can make or break a deal.
  • KNOW WHAT DEAL SIZE YOU SHOULD GO AFTER. Key requirements like a borrower’s net worth and liquidity are main determinants.
  • TRUST A BROKER. Primarily, brokers eliminate white noise as well as exclude loan programs that fit poorly with your investment.
