M&T Realty Capital: What’s the latest in seniors housing finance?
At MBA CREF, M&T Realty Capital’s Sean Huntsman met with reporter Nellie Day to discuss the trends he’s seeing in the multifamily and seniors housing sectors. One big takeaway: The current market demands flexibility and diversified lending. M&T Realty Capital Corp.’s lending platform is allowing the company to both succeed and expand — they had a record 2019 in terms of loan production for healthcare and seniors housing sectors.
In addition to a robust pipeline of multifamily and seniors housing construction loans, M&T is also working with owners/operators who are stabilizing assets and recapitalizing equity. However, Huntsman is seeing the impact of high labor and constructions costs and some overbuilding in certain markets, indicating that stakeholders need to look closely at demand on a market-by-market basis.
