Equity, Bridge & Mezzanine Financing - 105% LTV

Equity, Bridge & Mezzanine Financing can be structured in transactions that allow for 105% LTV and in some cases Loan to Values as high as 115%.  How is this possible?  With structured finance strategies, commercial real estate investors can leverage multiple forms of financing in the capital stack to achieve their goals.

Most distressed asset purchases made by commercial real estate professionals require money beyond the purchase price of the property.  When arranged properly, structured financed transactions can supply the money needed for down payment, senior debt, interest reserves during repair and money for the cost of repairs.

When one adds the cost of repairs and the interest reserve to the equation the needed LTV can exceed 105% of the purchase price and in some cases can reach up to 115%.  Equity can be used for the down payment, Bridge financing usually supplies the needed funds for the purchase and Mezzanine financing can be put in 2nd or even 3rd lien position to supply the rest of the needed capital to get a deal off the ground.

In many cases structured financing is put together by a capital markets professional hired within a commercial real estate firm that specialized in building and managing commercial real estate and multifamily portfolios.  However, in this capital constricted market, many firms have laid off these valuable professionals.  Today they seek to try and structure these deals themselves and must deal with multiple funders at one time.  it can be exhausting and daunting.
