Amid a record-setting apartment boom that has tested the fundamentals of the market, some multifamily developers are getting into the mezzanine lending business as a hedge against oversupply, according to Taylor Johnson client Ginsberg Jacobs LLC. After discussing the trend with co-founder Sonny Ginsberg, TJ pitched and secured coverage in GlobeSt.com. In the resulting story, Ginsberg provided an overview of the strategy’s benefits, including the ability to stay within a familiar asset class and geographic market without the risks associated with recourse liability. Moreover, in the event a project fails, the lender can take over the asset at a discount, using familiar skills to maximize the value of the underlying real estate.
