Building a Bigger Bridge: UC GO Plus
Private lenders are emerging as the heroes, injecting much-needed capital and breathing new life into stalled projects. High interest rates, apprehension from commercial banks, and the challenges of accurate property valuation have created an unstable lending environment, which has led to many projects being stalled or failing altogether. In an environment where private lending had already increased substantially, nearly 50% of CRE projects are reportedly
exploring alternative financing. That’s why UC Funds launched UC Go, a timely form of rescue capital for cash-flowing projects that were just steps away from stabilization. Based on its success and sponsor appetite, UC Funds has now expanded the program – UC GO Plus – to support larger capital requirements.

Why Consider Alternative Financing:

  • Cost and Availability of Capital:  Rising interest rates have made bank loans less attractive, pushing borrowers towards private lending options.
  • Banking Constraints:  Banks are tightening lending requirements, making it harder for CRE projects to secure traditional financing.
  • Market Volatility: The threat of mass defaults and economic disruptions has made private lending a more resilient option.
    Creative Financing: From short-term loans to seller financing, private lenders are offering innovative solutions to meet the market’s needs.
