$9,327,000 Acquisition Financing for Retail Portfolio; Multistate

Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners successfully arranged $9,327,000 in acquisition financing for the purchase of three prime retail properties adjacent to top colleges across different states. The properties are all performing very well but do not have credit tenants. Overcoming the reluctance of regional banks to cross-collateralize and the high rates offered by many lenders, we sourced a national bank that could loan on all three properties. The lender provided a seven-year fixed rate term and 4 years of Interest Only payments. The strategic placement of these properties in prime locations is expected to drive significant value appreciation. By structuring the loans with low leverage, we allowed the Sponsor to complete a 1031 exchange. The cross-collateralized loan with release provisions allowed the seamless acquisition of the assets.

  • Rate: Fixed at 6.01% for 7 years
  • Interest Only: 4 Years
  • LTV: 50%
  • Guaranty: Non-Recourse
