Commercial Real Estate Equity & Debt Financing
is the B2B consulting firm that focuses on capital finance
related issues for to-be-built commercial income-producing projects located throughout North America and the Caribbean Basin. Rainmaker
serves as the "gatekeeper" responsible for creating the capital
finance proposal (business plan), due diligence
presentation and institutional investment funding solicitations that allow the
developer (or sponsor, as the case may be) to know they have a qualified project
that will garner serious underwriting consideration for financing their
project(s). Rainmaker prepares the key due diligence elements, manages the
due diligence process and documentation elements necessary to qualify the
project for the capital financing strategy and structure the sponsor intends to
employ, then provides the necessary support that is a fundamental requirement of
successfully completing the finance underwriting process based upon the
underwriting requirements that are unique to each funding source. We
do not shotgun deals.
you stroke that check for the application fee to the lender, broker, investment
banker or investor,
you had better know the process of what has to happen and how the business model
for that lender, broker or investor works and what you have to do to have a real
shot at a successful outcome. If you don't, you are going to place
yourself at a very significant risk for losing those funds and blaming other
people for the outcome that you could have prevented, but didn't even know was
your problem, much less how to prevent a failure from being the only
outcome. That's why you need to talk to Rainmaker Underwriting before you
start this process.
consulting services are organized into general categories:
Financing - the creation of the necessary due diligence elements, plans, presentations and
solicitations, (that Rainmaker uses principally for commercial
real estate finance programs) then refers to intermediaries, investment
bankers, lenders and institutional investors for underwriting consideration
of construction loans, permanent loans, mezzanine loans, preferred equity
business finance programs including EB-5 financings and/or common equity financings to increase the
developer/sponsor's financial investment leverage, lower capital investment
requirements and/or eliminate painful recourse issues (personal guarantees,
cross-collateralizations, cross-default clauses, etc.) and support for the
FHA/HUD commercial mortgage insurance program that provides mortgage
insurance for the commercial housing industry.
Business Plans - the creation of a capital finance proposal for the
purposes of the initial solicitation of institutional, accredited
investors and/or prospective foreign investors (i.e.: those immigrants
seeking to participate in
visa program), to participate in funding a project or business.
Selection Reports - "flash" demand analysis reports for
commercial real estate development site selection and
evaluation purposes that are second to none.
Feasibility Studies - market feasibility
studies, new construction demand
reports and related consulting for all major industry groups - but with a
focus on the senior housing industry property groups.
Feasibility Studies - pro forma financial presentations, financial feasibility
analyses, economic impact studies, capital funding plan structuring and related services.
Planning - operating department plans, strategic plans and public
information disclosure documents.
Representation - help managing the due diligence, the capital financing
solicitation cycle, the construction and development processes, and beyond that
in a timely and cost-efficient approach that allows for real budget savings
Support Services - the provision of services designed to eliminate the most
common problems lenders face with borrowers seeking financing. If you
are a lender or investor who would like to make your underwriting process more
efficient, more profitable, less frustrating and less crowded with
transaction proposals that end up never completing the underwriting cycle
and closing, then we have a value-added service program you are bound to love - and it
costs you nothing!
Before you charge
off with your business plan or capital finance proposal seeking funding for your
business project, you would do well to remember that 4 out of 5 business seeking
capital investment fail to get it. That's right, more than 4 out of 5
routinely fail. There's a lot more deals out there than available
capital, so you are facing a daunting task. Maybe you should consider some
pretty bleak realities regarding your pending solicitation for project capital
misconception that your deal is so unique and so good that it will be
snatched right up is almost always wrong.
misconception that a 4-page proposal is going to get the job done because
you can explain your deal so well.
misconception that all you have to do is submit the application and the
funder then has to do all the heavy lifting.
misconception that the funding source just wants to check the box, so the
due diligence document itself doesn't matter.
misconception that the funding source's job is to educate you about their
misconception that your application fee is refundable due to your inability
to conform to underwriting process requirements.
misconception that a material misrepresentation of the facts here or there
won't really matter.
misconception that you don't have to have the due diligence documents ready
when they are ordered.
misconception that the underwriting process has to take the time stated by
the funding source regardless of the findings of the underwriter's
misconception that shotgunning the deal out to multiple funding sources will
get the job done.

Rainmaker has had extensive
discussions through the years with clients who are seeking funding for
their commercial income-producing property development and construction
program, but have, so far failed to do so. Rainmaker has also had
extensive discussions with intermediaries, investment bankers, lenders,
investors and underwriters to get their side of the story. The
interesting thing is that the same five (5) things seem to come up again
and again that end up leading to a total failure. Are you destined
to fail? Can you afford to take the risk of blowing out even a
single funding source, knowing that source could be the one source you
needed to succeed? What can you do to avoid these terrible
mistakes that always lead to a rejection? Click
