Retail Apocalypse

The headlines in the news lately state:

  • “Amazon’s buy of Whole Foods could transfer retail CRE”
  • “The latest results from a survey state reveal that CRE owners are continuing to tread carefully in a market fraught with challenges”
  • “Retail is set to reboot”
  • “IKEA, Ulta, TJX and Dollar Tree plan brick-and-mortar growth”
  • “The relentless rise of online sales and mounting struggles of brick-and-mortar retailers are taking their toll on retail real estate”

One thing is for certain! Retail is changing.
This webinar will focus on the changes in the retail landscape and how- and when – an owner should approach the lender/servicer to accommodate the changing landscape.

Cash Management & CMBS

Your loan documents most likely allow the servicer to control and keep all your cash flow when certain hurdles are triggered. Many of those triggers are based on MARKET conditions; not your property condition! This is one of the most frequent issues CMBS borrowers are currently facing – the loss of all their cash flow!  Learn about the triggers, how the servicer calculations are performed, some of the more severe case studies, and most importantly; what to look out for before you sign your CMBS loan documents.
