Commercial Loan Direct Announces A New Apartment Bridge Loan Product To Stabilize Apartment Complexes Between $1.5 Million And $5 Million

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012

Atlanta-based Commercial Loan Direct, a business division of CLD Capital, announces the immediate deployment of a new apartment bridge loan product. This product is designed for the acquisition and stabilization of apartment buildings with the goal of being taken out by CLDs Fannie Mae product.

CLD Capital, one of the top online originators of commercial loans in the country, hopes to expand the eligibility of borrowers for Fannie products in the small apartment arena by offering apartment bridge loans from $ 1.5 Million to $ 5 Million.

Commercial bridge loans are often used for commercial real estate purchases to quickly close on a property, retrieve real estate from foreclosure, or take advantage of a short-term opportunity in order to secure long-term financing. Bridge loans on a property are typically paid back when the property is sold, refinanced with a traditional lender, the borrower’s creditworthiness improves, the property is improved or completed, or there is a specific improvement or change that allows a permanent or subsequent round of mortgage financing to occur. The timing issue may arise from project phases with different cash needs and risk profiles as much as ability to secure funding.

Typical commercial bridge loan interest rates are usually 1115% (with 2-4 points origination), with terms of up to 12 months. Loan-to-value (LTV) ratios generally do not exceed 65% for commercial properties, or 80% for residential properties, based on appraised value. CLDs program offers substantial improvements over traditional bridge loans as follows:

Fernando Martin, Executive VP, says that “The purpose of this bridge loan is to stabilize and existing apartment complex and upon stabilization refinance with CLDs Fannie Mae product which would allow the Borrower to take advantage of Fannie Mae’s terms, low rates, and non-recourse options.”
