Grandbridge Arranges $14,000,000 Loan Secured by SoCal Marina Resort and RV Park

Published On: 05.04.15

Los Angeles, CA — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $14,000,000 first mortgage secured by a marina resort and RV park. The loan was originated by Los Angeles-based Shelley Magoffin and Max Sauerman.

The loan was arranged on behalf of a TIC consisting of two privately held real estate investment companies. 

The project is located in a prime coastal Southern California location and the large site allows for a vast array of uses, features and amenities. The property is subject to city and county ground leases. Grandbridge was able to work with the borrower and the lender, one of Grandbridge’s life insurance correspondents, to structure a long-term, fully amortizing loan at a competitive rate along with favorable prepayment flexibility. The nonrecourse loan also provided some interest only at the beginning of the loan term.
