SAN DIEGO, CA - Helvetica funded a $3,700,000  bridge loan  on an office/flex building in San Diego, California.   
A commercial mortgage broker contacted Helvetica looking for a cash out refinance for his client. The borrower is a
foreign national and has owned the property since it was constructed in 1997. The borrower needed bridge financing to pay off maturing debt, and to finish improvements for a new tenant who recently signed a 5-year NNN lease. Through great coordination by the broker, Helvetica was able to quickly close and pay off the current lender while providing enough cash out to complete improvements. The property will be a candidate for conventional bank financing once the lease is seasoned and the sponsor can show historical operating income.
