Grandbridge Finances $18.0 Million Multifamily Property in Greater Minnesota

Published On: 05.19.15

Minneapolis, Minn. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed an $18,000,000 first mortgage loan secured by a multifamily property in the Greater Minnesota area. Minneapolis-based Brett Olson and Chris Perry originated the refinance transaction.

Funding for the loan was provided by Freddie Mac and featured a 10-year term, 30-year amortization and closed with a fixed interest rate in the low four percent range. The loan required no personal guaranty and allowed the borrower to return a portion of equity to their investors and transition from recourse to a permanent 10-year nonrecourse loan.

“The loan funded on time and met our client’s financing objectives,” Olson said. “The property was 100 percent occupied at closing.”
