We’ve been working at a rapid pace at The AVE, our 20-unit motel conversion to short-term rental property located in Nashville, TN. We’ve had our crew on-site daily to renovate the units. This includes demo, painting, adding in LVP flooring, and windows, and installing new light fixtures. We’ve overcome challenges with plumbing and repiping and adding electrical to all of the units.

In our bathrooms we have put in new light fixtures, flooring, resurfaced as well as new toilets and bath sets.  We have been working hard on transforming the property as we are quickly approaching our live date. Our next step is to start furnishing the property, adding modern signage, and completing the gym and business center in the commercial space located on-site.


Quick Tip

Understanding Interest-Rate Caps 

If you choose to use a floating rate on your multifamily loan interest rate, it is important to understand what an interest rate cap is. Floating rate loans, also known as adjustable-rate, are rates that fluctuate throughout the life of the loan. An interest rate cap is basically an insurance policy where the borrower pays a premium to a third party so that if an event should occur where the floating rate index increases above the rate, the third party will cover the difference. The agreed-upon interest rate will be based on the SOFR (Secured Overnight Financing Rate) 

Interest rate caps are typically purchased upfront with single one-time premium payment to a cap rate seller and can be terminated by the buyer at no cost. They are typically used as a hedge by borrowers on shorter-term debt that allow flexibility for a refinance or sale. It essentially provides a ceiling or cap on the borrower's mortgage loan interest payments. Floating rate lenders commonly require an interest rate cap purchase as a condition for closing a loan. 

There are three variables that determine the cost of an interest rate cap:

  1. Notional 
    1. This is the amount of the loan and the size of the cap. 
  2. Term
    1. The term is the length of time that the cap is protecting the borrower. The longer the term, the more expensive it is with each additional month of the cap term increasing from the previous month. 
  3. Strike Rate
    1. The strike rate is the interest rate at which the cap provider begins to make payments to the purchaser. The lower the strike rate, the more likely the cap provider needs to make payment during the term. However, the lower the strike rate, the more expensive it is. 

You can calculate here:

If interest rates should increase above the agreed-upon “strike price,” the borrower pays the interest amount and receives a payment from the rate cap seller in an amount equal to the interest rate index payable for such period. For example, you will be paid out if you have a $50M loan with a 3-year term and a 3% strike cap if SOFR exceeds 3% over the next 3 years. 

In conclusion, it is key to understand how interest rate protections are used to hedge risk against uncertainty when using a floating rate loan and how the borrower is able to benefit from the advantages of purchasing an interest rate cap.
