George Smith Partners successfully arranged three bridge financings in Southern California. In today’s turbulent market, private quick close options are sometimes necessary. The ability to act quickly often allows our clients to become the chosen Buyer- purchasing these Properties at a large discount or solve a tenant/occupancy issue before a permanent refinance.

GSP worked with a local REIT to develop a program that includes a first and second private mortgage of up to 85% of acquisition price. With the fund and GSP, the loans are underwritten to the future value, to allow the client to implement their strategy. When used for purchasing a property, the loans are designed to provide the same surety of close as an all-cash buyer, with no appraisal needed and the ability to close as fast as 5 business days. The loans are non-recourse and have no prepayment penalty.

These loans are cheaper and easier than equity partners and allow the Sponsor to take advantage of opportunities using less cash.
