Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2005/09/22 - Apartment loans and condo industry expert, Steve Otos, Senior Director of Pacific Security Capital, will be participating in a panel on Condo Development at the Apartments 2005 conference
Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), a leading commercial real estate investment bank and provider of commercial real estate loans, announced today that Senior Director, Steve Otos, will be participating in a panel on Condo Development at the Apartments 2005 conference, September 27, Westin Century Plaza, Los Angeles.
Otos will join leading condo industry experts in a discussion on “The Next Best Thing: What's Driving the Boom in Condo Development & Conversions”.
“There has been a great boom in condo activity over the past few years,” said Steve Otos, Senior Director of Pacific Security Capital, “however, many lenders are now concerned about the future stability of the condo market.”
Pacific Security Capital believes that these concerns emanate from lenders who have been least active and have less knowledge about the asset class.
“The bottom line is that good projects from good sponsors will always receive interest from the capital markets,” said Otos.
According to Otos, projects that encompass the following will be successful in finding financing, even with the caution currently being expressed by some in the commercial real estate lending community:
• Sponsors with Successful Track Records
• Adequate Sponsor Equity Contribution
• Fully Entitled Projects
• Market Feasibility
• Strong Track Record in Marketing
• High percentage of pre-sales
Otos will share the latest trends in apartment loans/condo financing and his thoughts on key drivers of the condo boom during the panel session at Apartments 2005.
Panel: “The Next Big Thing: What’s Driving the Boom in Condo Development & Conversions”
Date: Tuesday, September 27, 2005
Time: 3.25 pm – 4.15 pm
Location: Westin Century Plaza, Los Angeles, CA
