(3) What fees does ACF charge?
ACF offers par pricing on all institutional quality permanent financing. Construction loans, Structured transactions or deals with underwriting issues may incur loan fees above par. Additionally ACF does not charge upfront fees (advisory services notwithstanding) for its loans. There is absolutely no cost or obligation to the sponsor. However before we even get to the issuance of a Loan Application and assuming that we or our network of investors have an interest in your transaction, investors will issue a Letter of Interest or Term Sheet which serves as a soft quote on pricing and sizing.

(4) What are ACF’s Loan Terms and Rates?
Each transaction is priced and sized based upon the unique underwriting characteristics of the project. One of our strongest value propositions is that we are both a Direct Lender and Intermediary. We can provide non-recourse long term fixed rate pricing, short term floating rate pricing or float to fixed options.
