Grandbridge Finances $7.7 Million Multifamily Housing Portfolio with Properties in Buffalo and Sartell, Minn.

Published On: 03.27.13

Minneapolis, Minn. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $7,700,000 first mortgage loan secured by two properties:  Hidden Cove Apartments, an 84-unit apartment complex in Buffalo, Minn., and Meadowlawn Village, a 95-unit apartment and townhome complex in Sartell, Minn. This refinance transaction was originated by Minneapolis-based Tony Carlson.  

Funding for the loan was provided through Fannie Mae’s Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) loan product and featured a 10-year term, 30-year amortization and closed with a fixed interest rate. The loan required no personal guaranty and allowed the borrower to pay off the existing financing.

“Working with Fannie Mae, Grandbridge successfully structured the transaction to meet the borrower’s specific needs while adhering to Fannie Mae's guidelines. This successful working relationship enabled Grandbridge to meet our first-time client’s objectives and fund the loan on time,” explained Carlson.
