This bridge loan on the purchase of an apartment complex did not have the necessary occupancy to get a normal loan, and the client needed to close quickly. The time it took from when the client signed our term sheet to the closing was only a whopping 18 days! NOT business days, actual calendar days! Bridge loans are a great alternative when you need speed and flexibility. Count on us to have the best hard money and bridge loan sources in the country.
This was a purchase of an apartment complex with an occupancy lower than 85% – and thus could not qualify for conventional financing. However, we were able to get the deal done with a bridge loan source that closes quickly. Once this proven operator restores the building to full occupancy, it will be easy to move this loan into a conventional loan. These are the easiest bridge loans for us to do and we can really perform well on these anywhere in the country. Give us a call at 888-959-1648 on your next apartment deal, we can get it done for you!
For ComCapFL, 2019 was the year of the Construction and Bridge Loan. Most of these mortgages were conventional, non-SBA, non-government loans — which confirms that not only are we able to secure multi-million dollar non-recourse loans, but we’re able to do so with an incredibly fast turnaround. For example:
Last week, we closed on a $3.7MM purchase and construction loan at 80% LTV. It was a conventional, non-SBA loan and the rate was 5.5% with no bank points. The tenant, a successful local restaurant, wanted to open their fifth location. We closed the loan in 31 days (from time of signing of the approval until it closed and funded!) This deal was strong; but the speed, execution, and terms were excellent. Not to mention, the borrowers were very pleased.
Now, in the new year, there is still A LOT of money available for construction projects. We have some incredible niches, including the following incredible products:
These loans will have blended rates close to 5% and are available for hotels, self storage, funeral homes, bowling alleys and many other special purpose properties. This is considered a “very hot product” and will often take the Loan to Cost (LTC) up to 85-90%! With a green project, we can do SBA loans — even if you have maxed out your SBA eligibility. Call ComCapFL today to discuss your options.
First Mortgage Bridge Debt Up to 80%-85% for Multi-family in Major Metros (75-80% for other main property types including hotels!) Rates tend to be around the 8.5% mark. THIS IS PRIVATE MONEY, NON-GOVERNMENT DEBT, which means quicker closings. It is the lowest-cost, high-LTC/non-recourse money available and we have it — at ComCapFL.
If you have a signed NNN lease from a credit tenant and need money to build out the space, we can get up to 100% of cost on that project. Of course, we can fund smaller projects as well (although the local banks do a pretty good job on the small stuff already.)

When most lenders say no, we say yes. Over 90% of our closed loans were denied somewhere else BEFORE coming to ComCapFL. When you present us with your loan requirements, we quickly preview the loan and if doable, kick out terms at no cost to anyone. Once you move forward with us, we sink our teeth into the deal and have the tenacity to get that deal done even in today’s crazy market.
A fast closing was essential for a 40 year-old, stabilized government contractor. They called their own bank for a CRE cash-out refinance loan on their office property — a pristine piece of CRE collateral with less than $100K left on the original mortgage balance. After 3 months of “lip service” and wasted time, the bank came back with a “NO.” With 100 employees facing layoffs and over $200MM in new contracts approved and pending, we were able to provide a $500K term loan in less than 1 week… just in time for payroll, saving 100 jobs and a great business. We followed this loan with another $3,470,000 bridge loan from our in-house funds. We closed in under 3 weeks, with no appraisal, just in time to fund the operation’s cash requirements.
*On a personal note, all of us at Commercial Capital Ltd. really like it when we can help save jobs, protect the families and keep perfectly solid businesses from facing extinction – especially when the bank can’t!
