CoreVest Surpasses $1.5 Billion in Build for Rent Financing, Releases Guide for Investors
CoreVest American Finance Lender, LLC (“CoreVest”), a leading lender to residential real estate investors nationwide and a division of Redwood Trust Inc., has surpassed $1.5 billion in financing to investors in Build for Rent (“BFR”) projects across the United States.
Since announcing the launch of the BFR loan product in 2018, CoreVest has seen rapid growth and interest in this asset class, culminating in the closing of $900 million in construction and short-term bridge loans and the funding of approximately $600 million in long-term loans to provide financing for a combined 10,000 BFR units as of February 28, 2022.
Under its BFR program, CoreVest provides a wide range of financing options across different stages of the BFR process, including construction financing for the development of new rental properties, bridge loans for renovation and/or lease-up, and longer-term loans for completed and stabilized units. CoreVest offers this product to seasoned investors with loan sizes ranging from $3 million to over $50 million.
“We have seen rapid growth over the last year in the BFR space, both in terms of development and demand. CoreVest is proud to have helped expand this business, and we continue to field strong investor inquiries around BFR financing on a regular basis. To that end, we are releasing a guide for investors on the Build for Rent product,” stated Beth O’Brien, CEO of CoreVest.
“While we have already created a solid business servicing operators of existing rental housing stock, we have seen extremely strong performance in purpose-built rental housing,” added Christopher Hoeffel, President of CoreVest. “Tenant demand demonstrates the need for high-quality rental alternatives to traditional multifamily dwellings.”
