Grandbridge Finances $5.56 Million Four-property Multifamily Apartment Portfolio in Minneapolis

Published On: 01.16.13

Minneapolis, Minn. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $5,560,000 first mortgage loan secured by a four-property multifamily portfolio.  All four properties are located in Minneapolis, Minn., and include nine buildings totaling 122 units. Minneapolis-based Tony Carlson originated the refinance transaction.
Funding for the fixed rate loans was provided by Riversource Life Insurance Company. The loan featured a variety of characteristics including 10- and 15-year terms and 15- and 20-year amortization schedules. The loans required no personal guaranty and featured fixed interest rates in the low four percent range. Loan proceeds were used to retire existing debt.

Grandbridge successfully worked with the borrower and lender to structure transactions that met the unique funding objectives of each property. This enabled the borrower to accomplish all of his refinance goals in one funding, with one lender. 

“The loans funded on time and met our first-time client’s timing objectives as originally scheduled,” explained Carlson.  The properties, all of which were 100% occupied at closing, feature a variety of unit types and amenities.
