Grandbridge Finances $4.8 Million Minnesota Multifamily Community

Published On: 10.23.14

Minneapolis, Minn. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $4,800,000 first mortgage loan secured by a 75-unit apartment complex in Eden Prairie, Minn. Minneapolis-based Tony Carlson originated the refinance transaction.

Funding for the fixed rate loan was provided by a life insurance company and featured a fixed rate for the 10-year term with a 20-year amortization. The loan required no personal guaranty and closed with an interest rate below four percent. The borrower utilized loan proceeds to retire existing recourse debt.

Grandbridge successfully worked with the borrower and lender to structure the transaction to meet the borrower’s objectives. This enabled the borrower to accomplish all of his refinance goals including fixing the rate for a 10-year term at a low interest rate.

“The loan funded on time and met our repeat client’s timing objectives,” explained Carlson. The garden style community, a mix of very spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, was 100 percent occupied at closing.
