Two big announcements for the people today:

  • Version 0.4 is out, with lots of small improvements plus automated multifamily loan quotes integrated.
  • The browser extension is now in open beta for any Google Chrome users. Anyone can download it!

If this is your first time hearing about the StackSource browser extension, catch up with the original announcement here:

Version 0.4

Automated multifamily loan quotes

Certain agency multifamily loan quotes will receive instant sizing and interest rate indications. Specifically Freddie Mac Optigo’s small-balance loan program ($1 — $6 Million loan size) and HUD 223(f) ($3 Million+, great rates for affordable multifamily properties).

Use a Pro Forma NOI for light value-add

If you’re looking at a property with the idea of adding value and increasing the NOI, you can differentiate between today’s NOI (which a bank or agency loan will use to size the loan), and your pro forma NOI. That way, the loan calculations will key off the current income, but your Cash on Cash Return metric will key off the pro forma.

This version is still not a strong analysis tool for redevelopment or heavy value-add plays, due to the assumption that financing is available based on the constraints of the asset’s Current NOI. In reality, many transitional lenders can and will underwrite a deal to a strong sponsor based on pro forma projections. Look for future releases of the extension to incorporate an LTC-based financing option.
