Vacant buildings have become a common issue in today's economy and an all too familiar reason for loan declines by traditional banks. Whether it be a multi-unit, a strip mall, apartment complex, or a property with a former big-box store attached, when buildings do not have full occupancy, they are just harder to finance.
Vacant properties can also be linked to higher crime rates such as squatting, theft, and arson. When you are the owner of said buildings you don't want to be stuck in a spot where you watch your property decrease in value and lose money in the process, all because you can't obtain financing needed to get new tenants.
Why not consider a bridge loan?
Unlike a traditional loan, a bridge loan can step in immediately, bridging the gap between vacancies and fully occupied time frames!
AMARILLO, TX - Helvetica Group identified a $2,291,000 single tenant NNN investment property in Amarillo, Texas for a private investor. The tenant was Longhorn Steakhouse which was on a long term, NNN, corporate guaranteed ground lease providing the investor with a stable, low risk return on their investment. The investor recently sold a multifamily property that required substantial hands-on management: he needed to quickly satisfy a 1031 exchange to defer a substantial tax liability. Helvetica was able to search nationwide to locate a suitable replacement property and organize the due diligence and closing within a short period of time. The investor doubled his income and reduced his management time by almost 100%.
Later, Helvetica arranged to refinance the property with a $900,000 cash out bank loan allowing the investor to purchase an additional property and diversify his holdings.
