Paramount in the minds of our firm’s Partners is to provide real estate bridge loan investments that generate superior yields for our investors, while commensurately providing superior protection of our investors’ capital. In the structuring of every debt transaction, we strive to provide flexible and creative real estate bridge financing solutions for provide attractive yields for investors and quick access to capital for borrowers with attractive low leveraged commercial and residential real estate assets.
We are highly selective where we deploy capital, and we focus on several characteristics when deploying our firm’s real estate senior secured bridge loan investment capital. We focus on providing our investors with low leveraged senior secured real estate debt investments that have immediate and reliable monthly cash flow. Each investment is always evaluated individually, with the single most important criterion of our diligence being the underlying real estate collateral with strong protective equity from the borrower.
All real estate property given consideration for collateral needs to be what we consider to be a commercial real estate property or a 1-4 unit residential real estate asset with strong underlying fundamentals. We place strong consideration in our due diligence on the real estate asset’s current and/or potential net operating income, the immediate demand for the property given the submarket fundamentals, the type of property, and our investment’s overall leverage exposure. Sponsorship strength has always been an important facet of our diligence, but it is a secondary consideration in due diligence – with the underlying real estate collateral and overall amount of leverage always being the primary criterion of our diligence, underwriting, and investment selection.
