Bullet Proof Your Loan Portfolio
The goal of this course is to recognize the fundamentals of booking Real Estate Loans that can weather the periodic economic storms that will affect your market place.

Markets are governed by simple Economics, but never forget that economic conditions may change rapidly. The weakly underwritten or borderline line loans are the first to be affected. The good news is that even in the worst of times, not all loans fail.

Our objective is to help you develop a strong portfolio that will withstand the test of time.

Covered Topics

  • Making safe loans; getting it right before the loan is booked
  • Understanding and evaluating the accuracy of appraisals
  • Underwriting for CRE (Commercial Real Estate) Loans: Owner Occupied, Income Producing, development, raw land
  • Equity, the essential ingredient
  • Appropriate amortizations
  • Depreciation is a real expense!
  • High Risk CRE Loans
  • Single Family Residential (SFR) Loans
  • Be a hands-on lender
  • Early problem recognition and action
  • Strong borrowers are your connection to other strong borrowers

These issues will be addressed in detail to help you structure fundamentally sound loans.
