Bridge Loan for Beachfront Luxury Home in Huntington Beach, CA
Center Street Lending, a direct private lending firm based in Orange County, funded a $4MM bridge loan secured by a newly constructed single family residence in Huntington Beach, CA. The property is an oceanfront luxury home on Sunset Beach. This project was originally a ground-up construction loan which we funded at 80% loan-to-cost. Once the build was completed, we refinanced their construction loan internally to give the Borrower a lower rate until the property was sold. The estimated sale price is just under $8MM, so our bridge loan leverage is at sub 50% LTV. The loan includes an interest reserve. We were able to close both loans in less than 10 days with appraisals. This residential property bridge loan was funded in May 2021.
In January 2021, TaliMar Financial funded a $807,000 1st position bridge loan in secured by a condominium in Encinitas, San Diego County, California. The loan was underwritten to 70% of current value (purchase price) with a term of 36 months. We did not require an appraisal. We approved and funded the loan with 7 days with minimal borrower paperwork. The Borrower will refinance our bridge loan with conventional financing. They plan to hold the property as a rental for long term cash flow. The biggest hurdle in this transaction was the HOA was in litigation with an outside 3rd party. Because of the risk associated with the litigation, most lenders were unwilling to fund the purchase loan. After reviewing the borrower credit strength and with a large down payment, TaliMar Financial approved and closed the loan in 5 business days. The Borrower was referred to us by our mortgage broker community after the conventional lender was unable to get the loan approved. Because the mortgage broker and borrower weren’t familiar with the hard money loan process, we worked closely with each party to ensure a smooth transaction. One of the biggest initiatives for TaliMar Financial in 2021 is educating real estate agents and mortgage brokers about the hard money lending approval process. Unlike conventional lenders, hard money lenders rely more heavily on the Borrower equity in the property vs their credit or cash flow. As long as the Borrower can demonstrate the ability to pay and have a clear path to repayment, hard money can be a great option to purchase or refinance a property.
