SMG Commercial Finance Advisory Division (SCFAD)
provides a broad consortium of funding services for many commercial-type transactions such as
Multifamily, Build-to-Suit, Construction, Flagged Hotels, Religious Organizations, Bridge and Conventional loans, and many more.

We're an entrepreneurial, team-oriented organization with decades of experience in real estate finance with advisory experience and operating know-
how. SCFAD's seasoned senior management, analysts, and underwriters are valuable assets to each and every borrower who seeks funding consultation from us.

Most of our clients understand that every real estate transaction is unique, and a property's value goes beyond the numbers on a page. This is especially true where the owner is trying to improve or stabilize the property. Our culture of flexibility and can-do attitude allows us to identify and embrace unique opportunities; those that others might reject.

In today's tight credit market, SCFAD's vast experience combined with a wide array of bridge and conventional programs maximize our borrowers' chances of securing the capital they need, even when they have been turned down by traditional commercial lenders and banks.

We have access to eight(8) private equity groups totaling over 1.2 billion dollars in available capital to fund various projects nationwide. Here are a few pre-qualifiers that we use to review a prospective, loan inquiry:

1. LTV  -  It's all about how strong the intrinsic value is supported by viable, extraneous interpretations that are tangible, logical, and reasonable valuations of a  project. In other words, we make sure to focus on what the realistic value of the property. Typical LTVs are up to 75%.

2. Borrower's Capital  -  How much CASH does the Borrower have in the transaction? Ideally, the only way a lender can lower its risk is for the Borrower to increase its risk. 25% to 30% is the normal guideline.

3. Credit  -  Borrower's credit history will always be reviewed, and in most cases, it will determine if the transaction is appropriate either for bridge or conventional financing.

4. Exit Strategy - Any lender wants to know how the Borrower plans to pay back the loan, so it's extremely important for us to know what " Exit Strategies" are taken place IN ADVANCE before engaging in in-depth discussion and details of funding a project.
