Here’s what you need to know about preferred equity and why it’s the solution to your problems.
What Should You Know About Preferred Equity?
Preferred equity is a financing tool. It’s not the first financing tool you’d reach for in your investing toolbelt, but it’s gaining popularity. And fast.
The current market is proving to be unpredictable and risky. Interest rates are on the rise and deals are scarier to commit to. The market is challenging to navigate, let alone feel safe in.
As a multifamily real estate owner, you want your money to yield the passive income of your dreams.
But how can you even achieve that in today’s market?
Should you feel pressured to refinance or sell out of fear of losing it all?
Luckily, RE Mentor is here to help you and no, you don’t need to refinance and sell.
Preferred equity is growing as a solution to your problems for its higher, more guaranteed returns. Per EquityMultiple, it “provides sponsors and developers a higher degree of leverage at a lower cost than common equity…it provides the opportunity to capture a fixed rate return with a priority of payment and some upside.”
Because of its security, preferred equity is a safer alternative in multifamily real estate. That means you can feel good about your investments and not worry.
With interest rates rising and the high risk of the current market, “Multifamily sponsors are facing significant ‘gaps’ in financing.” This means lenders are holding back on funds and leverage. But don’t let this scare you.
Preferred equity is your safety net for navigating these unpredictable waters. Applying this skill helps you finance multifamily real estate investments confidently.
Why You Can Trust Preferred Equity In Today’s Market
Today’s market can feel like a roller coaster ride: scary with many twists and turns. It can feel intimidating to invest right now. It can feel intimidating to buy right now. Maybe you’re convinced your only smart option is to sell.
In the past year alone, the market has gotten more fragmented. Stakes are high and your wiggle room is low.
But don’t let that scare you into impulsive decisions.
Thankfully, preferred equity is a path you can trust. It displays “equity-like returns and debt-like protections”, meaning you have less to worry about in the multifamily market. What used to feel like a huge risk is now something you can feel confident and safe about.
With certain debt-like characteristics, preferred equity investments include:
- A fixed-term or redemption rate
- Repayment of all its return
- Principal before cash is distributed to the sponsor
- Control rights
Preferred equity is the buffer you need to work through today’s market.
Preferred equity helps you stay securely afloat in unpredictable waters. It gives you the life vest you need to invest and still see significant returns even in today’s market. Preferred equity is the ultimate cheat code!

Sponsors who usually wouldn’t entertain the idea of this form of equity are now eager to do so. This is your time to take advantage.
Preferred equity is on the rise, and it’ll continue to climb. The rise in interest rates and softening of rents forces owners into refinancing or selling. Don’t let this be you.
