Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners successfully placed a $3,245,000 bridge loan fixed at 5.00% for two years. The loan will have an initial funding of $2,400,000 with the remainder distributed in 6 months’ time to accommodate funding structures for the Borrower’s needs. The Collateral is two adjacent commercial properties located in Hollywood, CA. One building is completely vacant and the other is a dated laundromat. The proceeds will cover renovation and leasing costs allowing the vacant building to stabilize, then provide additional proceeds to re-tenant the laundromat once the other building is cash flowing. The initial term sheet was structured at Prime plus a spread of 0.50%. When interest rates spiked during the closing process, GSP negotiated a fixed rate of 5.00%. GSP sourced a lender able to provide cash-out financing, limited recourse that burns off at full stabilization and fix their interest rate for the life of the loan.
