  1. 1. THE AGE DISTRIBUTION OF RENTERS: WHO LIVES IN SMALL PROPERTIES? Small balance multifamily loans are typically between $1 million and $5 million. Chandan Economics defines small-cap properties as 5 to 19 units, mid-cap properties as 20 to 50 units, and large-cap properties as larger than 50 units. Both small-cap and mid-cap properties can fall into the small balance spectrum.
