Monetizing and selling your TIF bonds for accretive value

Typically, obtaining a loan against your bond means additional contributed equity, and holding the bond causes a drag on returns. With Hageman Capital, you get the most for your TIF, up front capital for your project.

A new funding approach

Traditional bonds are debt instruments which are sold to an investor for an exchange of returns. However municipalities directly issue single-site TIF bonds to developers on proposed developments within their jurisdiction, to spur construction and place greater requirements on amenities and public infrastructure for the community. These project bonds can be negotiated for parcels and plans that are incorporated within a greater TIF district, or sometimes even on their own. When issuing TIF bonds, municipalities borrow against future cash flow from your projected development based on taxes at completion. The bonds are then paid off by actual taxes from the development project.

Using TIF to make projects feasible

Single site project TIFs are negotiated with the municipality directly, to help foster growth in areas that wouldn’t likely have new development, or development that are substandard, “but for” the creation of the TIF itself. Once a proposed TIF is agreed upon, monetizing your TIF cash flows for upfront project capital can be precarious, and requires the right level of real estate and financial expertise.

Multifamily projects are community drivers and perfect for TIF

Multifamily developments are key agents to increasing the local property tax base in the future. The volume of new full-time tenants draws greater tax revenue and is positive for the municipality. However, with higher property values and construction costs, developments can stall or struggle to pass feasibility tests. TIF bonds are a local incentive to help developers move forward with construction and further increase residency.

How to decrease contributed equity with TIF

Selling your TIF bond instead of obtaining a loan against it decreases contributed equity to the project. Including your TIF bond in your construction loan will increase the cost of the project and increase the amount of capital needed to maintain loan-to-cost ratios, reducing project returns.

Selling your TIF bonds lower developer’s contributed capital. You access millions in additional upfront capital for your project, and generate higher returns.
