PSRS MARKET INSIGHTS
Real estate is a relationship business. Trusting your mortgage banker and relying on their advice can provide you with several benefits including access to valuable long-term relationships, the ability to solve complicated problems, and extensive experience with various lenders, loan scenarios, and structures. Below are a few points of consideration for borrowers in the market for a commercial loan:
In the market today, we see that corporate bond rates have been rising even though index rates have been falling, causing spreads to increase. The reason life insurance companies do mortgages is to augment their bond portfolios. Mortgages provide stable cash flows similar to bonds but return better yields due to their lack of liquidity.
