Success! Equity Bridge Capital Closes 55% LTV Investor Bridge Loan in San Francisco

Despite the dilapidated condition of the new property, we were still able to offer the borrower very attractive terms: a 55% LTV purchase loan , 8.5% rate, 2 pts, and a 12 month term.

EQUITY BRIDGE CAPITAL - WE DO LOANS OTHER HARD MONEY LENDERS WON'T DO

 Over the past several years, there has been a flood of private investor capital entering the real estate lending space. Large funds backed by Wall Street have made an especially big splash in both the Northern and Southern California  markets giving borrowers more choices when it comes to alternative, non-bank  sources of capital. But what borrowers need to understand is this - large funds typically can't and won't do certain type of bridge loans that the small, yet well capitalized firms such as Equity Bridge Capital can do. Let me give you some insights and recent examples:  1.   JUNIOR POSITION  2ND AND 3RD LOANS  (and sometimes even 4ths). The large funds I have spoken with, for the most part, either are restricted within their business structure or have a firm policy not to offer secondary financing. This means a borrower who wants to get a bridge loan, but who has an existing favorable low rate bank loan, would need to replace that loan with new 1st Position financing - so not only would they lose their existing loan to a higher rate loan, but the new proposed 1st loan may cost the borrower significantly more money in terms of origination fees due to the larger loan amount being required by the Fund.  This is where Equity Bridge Capital has been able to step in and assist borrowers time and  time again in providing the junior bridge financing option .  Here are three recent examples:  A borrower in San Francisco who needed a quick  $500K bridge loan  to assist them in the operation of their business. They had an existing  1st Position $900,000 bank  loan at  4.25%  and wanted to keep that loan in place. Equity Bridge Capital was able to execute on that request in a matter of days -  after confirming that the LTV was less than 60%,  a  2nd was funded   giving the borrowers the "instant" liquidity they needed and at the same time allowing the borrowers to keep their low rate bank loan in place.   A Bay Area investor borrower had 2 bank loans totaling $2.1M  and came to us requesting a  $300K 3rd  position loan in order to make a deposit on a purchase contract to acquire an investment property in Southern California. The property we were asked to lend on was worth over $5M which put us at approximately at a  50% Loan-to-Value.  Immediately, we took swift action to underwrite, document, and fund the request  resulting in the borrower being to able make their purchase deposit, acquire the property, and keep their existing bank loans.  Lastly, we recently did a $ 2.7M 2nd Position Bridge Loan  for a borrower who had a 1st position bank loan and needed a new 2nd to pay off  maturing 2nd and 3rd position  business loans. The borrower's exit was to sell the property, which at a  45% LTV ,  gave us plenty of comfort and room to make that junior position loan.  2.  CONSTRUCTION/REHAB LOANS  - Ground up construction, rehab and construction completion loans all fall into a category that the majority of the large private money funds will not consider. These loans usually require more time to underwrite, are often complex in nature, and the inherent risk in providing construction financing is far greater than the "vanilla" loans the majority of funds focus on. Combine this with loan requests for junior position construction financing and you will find only a handful of private money lenders in California willing to take on such loans. And again this is where Equity Bridge Capital shines. Here are some examples of recent construction bridge loans we have done:  A  Napa County  home builder needed a  $1.2M construction completion loan.  The borrower had spent a considerable amount  of money on acquiring and entitling the land and had started construction, but then had run out of funds to complete the project. Equity Bridge Capital came to the rescue and provided the Builder with the requisite funds needed not only to complete the project, but to also carry them through the marketing period until the property was sold.    In  San Francisco,  an investor recently requested  $1.1M as a 2nd  to complete a spec rehab project. The 1st was a low interest rate bank loan and of course the borrowers wanted to keep that loan in place. Equity Bridge Capital agreed to provide the requested completion funds by having the borrower put up another property they owned as  additional collateral  to secure the loan. The property when done is estimated to be worth in excess of $4M and the CLTV ( combined loan to value ) using the other property was l ess than 55% .  Finally, we have been making  acquisition and rehab loans  to residential and commercial  spec developers throughout the  Bay Area and Southern California.  Often the purchase money loan requests are highly leveraged loans based on the upside  after repair value.  These borrowers like working with us as we are truly a " one stop shop"  - underwriting and funding both the  purchase and rehab loan  on a project and working closely with the builder borrowers to assist them all along the way - in fact,  it is not unusual for us to get involved in modifying loans as needed where either more time or capital is needed to complete a project.   Feel free to call or email me  anytime regarding a bridge loan you need - be it a  1st, 2nd, or 3rd  position loan. Equity Bridge Capital has  competitive rates, fees, and terms  and we will respond quickly to any request be it  residential or commercial . We do loans from  $200K to $20M+  in  Northern, Central, and Southern California.

Equity Bridge Capital is at the forefront of private money lending in providing a unique product -  1st, 2nd, and 3rd position bridge loans for investors with construction completion projects.  These loans are challenging in that half built projects are often stalled and fraught with complex issues such as inadequate budgets and cost overruns, unplanned for changes in the scope of work, borrower lack of liquidity,  problems with existing lenders ( slow responses to draw requests, maturing notes), changing contractors ,and the ability to get adequate title insurance, for completion loans  -and these are just a few of the things that make construction completion lenders so hard to find and  the loans difficult to underwrite and fund. Yet, Equity Bridge Capital has carved out a niche for itself  - be it a $1.2M 1st Position loan on a 4,000 sq foot spec home in the East Bay , a $900,000 3rd Loan on 5,000 sq ft build in San Mateo, a $750,000  2nd and 3rd Financing Package for a Piedmont Developer, or a $1M loan for a unique Napa project, Equity Bridge Capital is working hard in successfully providing the very best loan products and service for investors and builders throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California.

California Bridge Lending Forecast - Trends & Opportunties in 2017

A new year has arrived - and with it, comes reflection as to trends and opportunities in the world of private money, real estate bridge lending.

2016 was another active year for California hard money lenders and their investor borrowers. Low supply and strong buyer demand continues to drive appetites for buying, building, renovating, and selling residential and commercial property in both urban and suburban markets. And the trend that we have seen over the last several years of new capital sources entering the private lending space continues to expand as Wall Street and Internet firms have jumped in to create large Funds attempting to capture business not only in California, but nationwide as well.

 As a result of this infusion of new capital, firms like Equity Bridge Capital have had to rethink and adjust their business approach. Mainly, it's been all about getting back to basics with great  results : focusing on familiar, local California markets like San Francisco, LA, Orange County, and San Diego to provide great service for customers in those markets, and continuing to provide loan products that the Big Box Funds typically cannot and will not provide   - such as junior bridge loans ( this includes both 2nds & 3rds  ) and construction loans (  for ground up and half-built, completion projects).

What will happen in 2017?  A new administration, interest rate hikes, global and domestic security concerns, and a general, overall feeling that the bull markets ( both real estate and financial) seem logically vulnerable to a correction at some point in time is sure to create angst for some on both sides of a transaction.  Yet,  because of the volume and type of requests we are seeing, all factors seem to indicate that investor borrowers in 2017 will continue to seek leverage to take advantage of this unprecedented cycle and that  private lending resources such as Equity Bridge Capital will continue to stand by,  ready to assist investor borrowers who need bridge financing for their projects.

Equity Bridge Capital is a San Francisco based Private Money, Hard Money Real Estate Lending Company focused on providing bridge loans secured by both residential and commercial property in California. Our niche loan products include 1st, 2nd , and 3rd position loans, ranging from $200,000 - $10,000,000+ for all types of scenarios such as purchases, refinances, and construction projects. We offer competitive, customized terms - depending on the  request. We work with all types of borrowers (good/bad credit, high/low net worth, high/low liquidity) and lend on all types of properties throughout Northern and Southern California - with an emphasis on San Francisco and the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego.

INVESTOR SECRET WEAPON FOR SUCCESS? USING PRIVATE MONEY BRIDGE LOANS

Why do some real estate investors succeed at getting and completing the best deals while others may flounder? The answer is simple  - BY USING A RELIABLE  HARD MONEY / PRIVATE MONEY SOURCE TO MAKE ALL CASH OFFERS and PROVIDE REHAB MONEY TO COMPLETE PROJECTS. The process starts with a phone call - an investor has found a promising property with upside potential TO FIX AND RESELL.  The investor's concern is, because of the lack inventory for such deals, the property may go quickly - and probably with multiple offers. Often, the investor's capital is tied up with other projects and therefore they do not have the liquidity to make an all cash offer and/or fund the construction component of the deal. However with a PRIVATE, HARD MONEY BRIDGE LENDER LIKE EQUITY BRIDGE CAPITAL, their problem MAY BE SOLVED IN FIVE NOT SO EASY, BUT DOABLE STEPS.

HERE'S HOW WE DO IT: 

STEP ONE  - ASKING BASIC QUESTIONS:  What is the address, the asking price, how long has the property been on the market,  how much does the Borrower plan to offer, how much do they plan to put down, how much do they want to borrow, when do they plan to close,  how long do they need the loan for, what is the extent of work being considered and the estimated cost of construction, what is the timeline for completion, and what is the estimated resale value after completion. As to the BORROWER'S FINANCIAL SITUATION we need to know about their: cash in the bank, sources of income, ability to make payments, credit history, and other real estate holdings they may have. As to their LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE WE WANT TO KNOW: how many projects like this have they done, where and how did they turn out - and who is on their team for this one? (  general contractor, architect, subs, realtor, stager, etc )

STEP TWO:  GETTING THE DEAL. Prior to making their offer, the Borrower usually asks us to provide some type of FINANCING LETTER  that they can show to the Seller. In this regard, we can write for the Borrower a conditional Letter of Interest that summarizes the approximate terms and cost of the loan ( loan amount, loan position, collateral being used,  interest rate, origination fees, closing costs, length of term, interest reserve, etc ). subject to our due diligence which will be done once the Borrower's Offer has been accepted. It is not unusual for a Seller's agent to contact me directly to ask about this process.

STEP THREE: BORROWER AND LENDER DUE DILIGENCE: The Offer has been accepted - now what? At this point, both the Borrower and Lender need to do their due diligence.  And it is not uncommon to hear from a borrower that our second "set of eyeballs" looking at the deal often helps them better understand and plan accordingly for some of the risks associated with the project.

STEP FOUR: CLOSING ON THE PURCHASE - Once the due diligence has been completed and we all agree on moving forward,  we produce loan documents, the borrower signs, the loan gets funded, and the purchase and loan closes.

STEP FIVE: CONSTRUCTION LOAN COMPONENT - Once the purchase closes, the Borrower will next need to provide the following:  approved plans and permits from the City or County,  a detailed budget, an agreement with their General Contractor,  a finished value appraisal, and  a builder's insurance policy  Once these items are provided and accepted, we then can fund the construction component for their project.

In summary, the path to success in real estate starts with identifying a buying opportunity and then seizing upon that opportunity. Having the right team in place is fundamental to this process. Equity Bridge Capital has been focused on this niche, successfully helping all types of real estate borrowers,  professionals, and investors pursue rare opportunities in the marketplace. We provide 1st and 2nd Position Bridge Loans - from $200,000 to $10,000,000+ throughout Northern California,  the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California

PRIVATE MONEY CONSTRUCTION COMPLETION LOANS - TOUGH TO DO AND OUR SPECIALTY

It is not uncommon for investor builders in the middle of a construction project to find themselves running short of capital to complete what they started. Banks who provide construction financing do not like to hear that, which in turn can become a real problem for an illiquid sponsor. So what can they do?

This is where Equity Bridge Capital is often asked to help. EBC specializes in providing private money bridge financing for all types of investor borrowers stuck with a complex, half built project. These loans may be 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd position loans and typically are 12-24 months in term, which in turn gives borrowers time to not only complete a tough build, but also to either refinance or sell once the build is finished.

The processing and funding of these loans is not easy. Issues pertaining to mechanics liens, completion budgets,  finishes, plans ,permits, insurance, senior debt, and values ( to name a few ) are all part what makes these loans extremely challenging.  Fortunately for our borrowers, Equity Bridge Capital has a very experienced and diligent team in place to help navigate what often can be a very stressful and difficult process.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any type of bridge loan - and especially those relating to construction. Our loans range from $200,000 - $20,000,000 and we cover all of Northern and Southern California. My contact info is:
