According to a senior underwriter at Trinity Street, “access to construction loans, particularly for hospitality properties, has become increasingly difficult to obtain as we approach the top of the next real estate cycle. There has been an explosion of new hotel development across the country, in addition to future potential disruptors, such as Airbnb or similar web sites who operate online market places for peer-to-peer, short term lodging. According to several industry experts, there has been approximately an 80% drop in bank construction lending in 2018 versus 2017.”
