    Commercial Bridge Loan to Value Ratios (LTV)

    Commercial real estate bridge loan lenders may have lower loan to value ratios compared to conventional lenders. Commercial bridge loans for commercial property (retail, office, mixed use, etc.) may be limited to 60-65% of the current value of the property or purchase price. Commercial bridge loans for residential property such as apartment buildings and other multifamily properties may extend up to 70-75% of the current value of the property or purchase price.

    Multifamily bridge lenders are able to provide higher loan to value ratios since there are many more users of residential dwellings compared to retail, office or industrial types of properties. The higher demand for multifamily property results in lower risk for multifamily bridge lenders which allows them to offer a higher loan to value.

    Commercial Bridge Loan Rates

    Commercial bridge loan rates are higher than interest rates available from conventional long-term lenders. This is because of the short-term nature of commercial bridge loans as well the speed of funding that is typically needed in these types of situations. Commercial bridge loan lenders are not performing a deep underwriting process compared to a conventional lender.

    Expect commercial bridge loan rates to be in the range of 8-10%. Commercial bridge lenders may consider various factors such as the needed loan to value, property condition, property location, financial strength of the borrower and borrower’s credit.

    Commercial Bridge Loan Common Uses

    A common use of a commercial bridge loan is to quickly acquire commercial real estate when the buyer doesn’t have time to wait for conventional financing. In many cases, commercial bridge loans can close in days if needed while conventional financing can take months. Once the buyer has secured the property with the commercial real estate bridge loan, they can then start the process of refinancing with a conventional lender.

    Another reason to use commercial bridge financing is that the buyer may need time to make repairs or improvements to the property or decrease the vacancy rate prior to applying for the long-term conventional loan. Once the property has been improved and/or stabilized, refinancing with a traditional lender would be possible.

    Multifamily Bridge Loans

    Multifamily bridge lenders provide financing that allows borrowers to purchase a multifamily property, make repairs and upgrades and then refinance into a long-term loan once the units are leased. Multifamily bridge loans are a short-term financing tool that provide the real estate investor with an opportunity to add significant value to the property prior to refinancing with a traditional lender.
