ASK MIKE MONDAYS - “Michael, LIBOR is being phased out; what impact will SOFR have in commercial mortgages? Should I be concerned?” BONUS CONVERSATION with JP CONKLIN with Pensford
Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) is the new index that both Fannie, Freddie and some bridge lenders use for their adjustable rates. Remember, index + profit margin = interest rate. The more stable the index…the more stable the rate. In the last few years, the London Interbank Offer Rate (LIBOR) was the preferred index. BUT…regulators thought that LIBOR could be manipulated and now we have: SOFR. SOFR is consider a ‘less risky’ index.
