Cambridge Realty Capital Sees Loan Requests Topping $3.72 Billion in 2010

Cambridge Realty Capital Companies recently announced that it processed 267 loan origination requests in 2010 totaling $3.72 billion, or slightly fewer than last year when the company reviewed 298 loan requests totaling $4.0 billion.

“Loan origination request volume remained strong but Cambridge was forced by reality to be more selective in the type of loans logged into the company’s internal processing system,” noted Chairman Jeffrey A. Davis.  “Although down slightly, when technical adjustments are taken into account, our numbers do, in fact, confirm reports that lending activity is increasing. But deals are being completed at very low loan-to-value ratios with more conservative underwriting guidelines.”
