Goetten's GroveMinneapolis, Minn.  —  Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $5,000,000 first mortgage loan secured by Goetten’s Grove Townhomes and Apartments, a 121-unit multifamily property in St. Cloud, Minn. The 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 a fixed interest rate in the mid three percent range.  The interest rate was locked at application and the loan closed in under 60 days.  “The low interest rate environment enabled the borrower to significantly reduce their debt service payments while moving to a fully amortizing 15-year term,” stated Carlson.  The property features an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, and fitness center.
