play a role in whether a lender can successfully close a loan for a borrower. “Just like the U.S. and Canada have different laws, Jamaica and Bermuda have different laws,” Wolfer said. “It’s not just about being will- ing to lend outside the U.S. – it’s about having the firsthand knowledge, experience, and capabilities to close the deal.” Wolfer added that lending on raw land is an additional obstacle to securing funding abroad, for the same reasons that land loans can be difficult to secure in the United States. “Most borrowers anywhere in the world regard raw land as a risky proposition because there are so many unknowns, and in the event of non-pay- ment and if the property itself is collateral, is it much harder for a lender to sell the prop- erty,” Wolfer said. Kennedy Funding has closed a number of loans outside U.S. borders in 2020, includ- ing a $2.633 million loan for a residential development in Brazil, $3 million for a residen- tial resort in Belize, and a $3 million loan for a residential community in the Bahamas. Even with the COVID-19 global pandemic dampening tourism and other industries that fuel economies abroad, Kennedy Funding still worked closely with each borrower to find a way to secure funding. “This was a year of economic uncertainty across the globe, but with thoughtful and care- ful planning, we are still able to provide the funding our clients need to participate in lucrative commercial real estate pursuits around the world,” Wolfer said. “No mat- ter the challenges, our experi- ence – and subsequent results – demonstrate that we have the skills necessary to close the deal.” MAREJ limited exposure in terms of decreased occupancies, asking rents and property values, as compared to other real estate classes. “Despite the complex eco- nomic variables of the pan- demic, multifamily invest- ments benefit tremendously from their fundamental func- tion as one of the most reli- able residential options,” said Uranowitz. “As such, the wide delta between multifamily investment demand and for- sale product availability is ex- pected to persist throughout 2021 and into 2022.” MAREJ

Not so for Kennedy Fund- ing , an Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey-based direct private lender with extensive experi- ence closing loans around the world. The firm’s principals to - day announced the closing of a $1.4 million loan to P&L Hold- ing Ltd. Loan proceeds will be used to acquire 2,486.31 acres of raw land with waterfront views, located in Milk River, Clarendon Parish, Jamaica. “Over years that we have spent working closely with experts and authorities in Ja- maica, the Bahamas, Canada, and many other countries, we have honed the skills and knowledge necessary to navi- gate the real estate and money lending laws in many coun- tries outside the U.S.,” said Kevin Wolfer , CEO, Ken- nedy Funding. “Without that knowledge and experience, lenders don’t have a chance at successfully closing loans. We are proud to say that we have put our expertise to work once again, to get P&L Holding the funding they need to complete this acquisition.” According to Wolfer, inter- national loans face unique challenges and scrutiny not experienced by borrowers working domestically. Differ- ences in rules and regulations, physical distance between borrower and property, vary- ing economic conditions, and differing political climates all “Whether this is a tempo- rary or permanent phenom- enon remains to be seen. Regardless, these tenants are seeking alternative apart- ment-rental options with more living space and greater affordability, where they can safely enjoy nearby outdoor recreation venues,” he said.

of value, DST asset managers have the ability to create an estimation of value for the date of the demise. In comparison, carving up ownership for heirs in a wholly owned property can be difficult and even contentious. You can’t give the roof to one child or grandchild, and the walls to another and the doors to a third. It’s all or nothing. Some heirs may want to sell, while others don’t. If they all agree to sell, then they also have to agree on when to sell and at what price. In some cases, that process can drag on for years. During that time, the heirs also need to assume the man- agement responsibilities for that property or pay someone else to do it. That process gets even more complicated the more heirs who are involved. DSTs are commonly used in 1031 Exchanges as a means to defer capital gains taxes. Yet the tax advantages of the fractional ownership struc- ture also can be passed on to future generations to help build family wealth. The bot- tom line is that DSTs can be carved up and passed to heirs PENN YAN, NY — The Community Preservation Corporation (CPC) and REI REI LLC , whose principals are Cindy and Vincent Ro- sato , announced the closing of $1.5 million in construction and permanent financing to rehabilitate Liberty Street Lofts into an 8-unit property with ground floor commercial space in the village of Penn Yan. “At CPC, we invest in proj- ects that strengthen the
