IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2014) - Talonvest Capital, Inc. successfully negotiated and closed a $15.93 million bridge loan secured by Emerald Lake Corporate Centre in Carlsbad, CA. The partial recourse, 3 year, floating rate loan was provided by a Los Angeles based real estate finance company. The loan effectuated a discounted payoff from the prior bank lender and had an initial advance of 82% against the as-is appraised value; although it allowed for an advance in excess of 94% of the total capitalization costs. In addition, the loan included future funding for interest reserves, tenant improvements, capital expenditures, and leasing commissions. Scott Brusseau, President of Newport National Corporation, commented, "we continue to work with Talonvest on our financings because they deliver results with excellent service and the relationships they maintain are a great differentiator."
Talonvest principals Tom Sherlock and Eric Snyder orchestrated a broad based, competitive market with banks, credit companies, debt funds, and investment managers for this loan; Laura Bogart of Talonvest coordinated a closing less than four weeks after execution of the term sheet. Sherlock noted, "the growing supply of bridge capital is best evidenced by the fact that over forty lenders reviewed this opportunity and many of them wanted to make the loan. Bridge financing options and loan structures should continue to get better for borrowers in 2014."
