CMBS

Newmark’s affiliate company, CCRE, provides commercial mortgage loans which primarily follow the standards set by the CMBS securitization market. The fixed rate loan program focuses primarily on assets with stable cash flows, and typically exhibits conservative loan structures including amortization, reserves, moderate loan to value (LTV) ratios, strong debt yields (DY), and debt service coverage ratios (DSCR). The floating rate program is better suited for transitional assets or with short-term cash flow volatility. Structuring and leverage are tailored to the specific needs of transaction.
