George Smith Partners arranged acquisition bridge financing for a value-add, multi-family property in Los Angeles, California. One of our more experienced multi-family owner/operators has become experienced in sourcing opportunities to quickly close on troubled multi-family properties. His ability to act quickly often allows him to become the chosen Buyer, purchasing these Properties at a large discount.
GSP worked with a local REIT to develop a program that includes a first and second mortgage of up to 85% of acquisition price. The loan is 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 loan is non-recourse and has no prepayment penalty.
These loans are cheaper and easier than equity partners and allow the Sponsor to take advantage of smaller opportunities using very little cash. With less than $400,000 of equity, the Sponsor was able to purchase a $2,015,000 building. At close the Subject Property was worth close to $2,500,000, allowing the Sponsor to quickly flip the Property. This is the third time GSP has used this custom created loan program to procure financing for our client.
