Grandbridge Finances $3.8 Million St. Cloud Multifamily Property

Published On: 10.15.13

Minneapolis, Minn.  — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $3,800,000 first mortgage loan secured by a 97-unit multifamily property in St. Cloud, Minn. This refinance transaction was originated by Minneapolis-based Vice President Tony Carlson.  

Funding for the fixed rate loan was provided by a life insurance company and featured a 15-year term, 15-year amortization and closed with an interest rate in the low three percent range.  

The interest rate was locked at application and the loan carried a forward rate lock to facilitate the October closing date.  The low interest rate environment enabled the borrower to significantly reduce the debt service payments while moving to a fully amortizing nonrecourse loan.
