Direct Lender for Commercial Real Estate Bridge Loans

Edgewood Capital’s Bridge Lending Program specializes in tailoring creative financing solutions to the varied, and often complex, needs of its borrowers. Edgewood’s bridge loans are designed to assist property owners in financing commercial real estate assets or borrowers in transition that do not meet conventional underwriting criteria. Edgewood also funds loans that could qualify for traditional financing options, but require a quicker closing (as short as two weeks) and/or a flexible loan structure.

As a direct bridge loan lender, Edgewood originates, holds, and services all of its loans, providing borrowers with high-quality customer service and surety of execution.

Please note: We do NOT offer loans for ground-up construction projects, and we do not lend on single family homes.
