Commercial Bridge Loans

Commercial Properties

Commercial bridge loans are very useful for properties in transition, such as a newly constructed hotel as it reaches stabilized occupancy, or a re-positioned shopping center during the re-tenanting period. Sometimes non-recurring events cause a property to lose tenants or occupancy. Commercial bridge loan has two primary characteristics. They are short term loans and they put the impetus on the borrower to define a clear exit strategy. Nobody wants a bridge to nowhere, and lenders do not either.

Property cash flow

Borrowers also like to use these types of loans when they feel there is upside in the property cash flow which would allow them to borrower more funds in the future. Also borrowers can use these short term commercial bridge loans when they don’t want to lock in long term financing. If they think that there will be more favorable financing available for their property in a few years, a short term commercial bridge loan can be a good hedging strategy.

Commercial bridge loan lenders

Financial Compound is a commercial mortgage broker that works with numerous commercial bridge loan lenders who don’t require an exit strategy, and are happy to make bridge loans for certain property types and cash flow characteristics that would normally otherwise require long term permanent financing.

Commercial Bridge Loans

In 2010 commercial bridge loans are also great alternatives for maturing loans that need to be refinanced. Currently the permanent mortgage market for commercial properties is not as robust as it used to be prior to the credit crunch in 2007 and commercial bridge lenders can fill in the gap. Their commercial bridge loans offer many of the features of long-term fixed rate financing although the loan term is usually 5 years or less. A benefit of commercial bridge loans; though, is the interest-only feature that many commercial bridge lenders offer. A typical commercial bridge loan might be a 3 year loan with a 6% interest rate, interest-only. non-recourse, 1/2% lender fee, no prepayment penalty.
