Commercial real estate strength transcends across all markets and asset classes Bruce Batkin, CEO of Terra Capital partners, tells TheStreet's Jill Malandrino. Batkin says mezzanine debt is doing exceptionally well because of the demand for financing. New construction is on the rise and there is a wall of maturities that were originated at the peak of the housing bubble that are now coming up for maturity over the next few years and they will have to be refinanced, but traditional lending is limited. While demand is high, Batkin is not concerned with over-levered assets like we saw during the bubble because it is contained with new regulations and bond buyers remain very cautious in the CMBS market. Batkin says investors can participate in commercial real estate growth with good risk/reward profiles in public and non-public investment vehicles, some yielding anywhere from 4%-9%.
