CALCAP Strategic Opportunities—Introducing Preferred Equity

We are excited to announce the launching of CALCAP Strategic Opportunities (CCSO). The CCSO platform is designed to provide gap financing solutions in the multifamily sector, targeting workforce housing projects with values of $5MM to $20MM, and investments up to $10MM per asset.
Preferred equity is a financial instrument used to help build the capital stack in real estate investment structures. It is a unique instrument that straddles the line between debt and equity—having the attributes of both. Practically speaking it is an equity investment and receives priority on both distributions and return of capital over the common equity but is still subordinate to the senior loan.
CALCAP’s core competencies of lending, asset management and property management have provided us a synergistic opportunity to begin to fill this niche in the market. We believe our combined operating division strengths give us a unique competitive advantage in the market to properly underwrite the risk and manage the assets. We are well positioned to take advantage of key demographic shifts that continue to forecast robust rental housing demand over the next decade.
Loan amounts:__________$1,000,000 up to $10,000,000
Max LTV:______________ 90%
Terms:________________ 2-5 years
Transaction Types:______ Preferred equity, Bridge loans, A/B notes, Mezzanine Debt
Property Types:_________Multifamily and SFR Portfolios
