Bridge Loans for Commercial Real Estate - Acquisition & Rehab to 100% of Cost

Sound to good to be true?  Maybe it is and maybe it isn't, the devil is always in the details.   There are a lot of bridge lenders (... and pretenders ...) touting their bridge loan product with "100% of rehab cost" included.  Many brokers and borrowers are reading into this, thinking that the loan is a 100% LTV, however, closer examination reveals something entirely different.

Bridge loans for commercial real estate acquisition and rehab are coming back into the market at a very rapid pace and that is a good thing.  This 'new' bridge loan product is actually not new at all, and surprise, surprise, it's not a 100% LTV loan.  That notwithstanding, it is a great loan nonetheless.

With LTV ratios that can exceed 100% of current market value in some cases the thing that is important to focus on when chasing a distressed property that will required financing by use of a bridge loan for commercial real estate is the LTC or Loan to Cost percentage.  LTC calculations on bridge loans for commercial real estate can vary widely from lender to lender and from opportunity to opportunity.
