Real Estate Financing

As experts in the real estate and capital markets, CBRE’s real estate financing professionals offer optimal real estate financing products.


Your knowledgeable partner for all your questions about structured financing products

The financing of real estate is in transition. On the one hand, banks are imposing more stringent requirements on borrowers, and interest rate terms have become more demanding, whilst on the other hand new alternative lenders and financing options have also emerged. Finding your ideal financing deal requires significant market knowledge and experience.

Complexity makes professionalism essential

Borrowers are now faced with more stringent requirements, e.g. regarding their track record, equity capitalisation and the location and quality of projects. This makes real estate investment significantly more complex and the financing process has to be increasingly professional. As the world’s leading real estate services provider, we advise and support investors in all matters relating to structured real estate financing, and we use our investment banking expertise to ensure that opportunities are leveraged and risks minimised.

Our real estate finance experts operate at the interface between the real estate, banking and capital markets. This allows us to support our clients with comprehensive specialised services. In addition, our international orientation gives us a sound basis of data on the current situation in the market, including local markets and market developments. Our aim is to provide our clients with the best and, above all, the most reliable financing solution:

  2. Sourcing mezzanine, whole loan and senior debt capital – including financing existing properties and interim financing
