COSTA MESA, CA -Talonvest Capital, Inc. successfully negotiated and closed a $15 million bridge loan for Civic View Corporate Centre in San Marcos, San Diego County, CA. The non-recourse, 30 month floating rate loan, priced at sub 6% on an interest only basis, was provided by a finance company focused on servicing middle market real estate clients. The loan, which refinanced the original bank lender, had a 77% advance against current value and included future funding for interest and tax reserves, tenant improvements, and leasing commissions. Scott Brusseau, President of Newport National Corporation said, “Talonvest’s competitive bid process resulted in better loan terms than we had anticipated.”
Tom Sherlock, a principal at Talonvest, observed that the bridge lending market is more competitive with new lenders entering the fray in recent months, especially for loans over $25 million. In addition Sherlock noted, “the $10-$25 million dollar bridge loan market is healthy and hasn’t been impacted much by the recent market turbulence”. Eric Snyder, Sherlock, and Laura Bogart successfully negotiated the loan terms and orchestrated a timely closing on behalf of the borrower.
