ATLANTA — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently originated and closed a $9,280,000 first mortgage loan secured by Lealand Place Apartments, a 192 unit market rate apartment complex located in Lawrenceville, Georgia.  Funding for the acquisition loan was placed for a local owner operator through Freddie Mac's Capital Markets Execution SM (CME) loan product. Atlanta-based Grandbridge Vice President Alan Tapie arranged the financing. The 10-year fixed rate loan features two years of interest-only followed by a 30-year amortization.

“The transaction structure offers exceptional low interest rate financing for immediate strong cash flow, enabling the client to acquire the asset at a very low cost basis,” explained Tapie.
