Multifamily Bridge Loan – Louisville, Kentucky

One of Lima One Capital’s specialties is multifamily bridge financing in secondary markets with Class B and Class C properties. This multifamily loan in Louisville, Kentucky is a prime example. The property was stable, with 98% occupancy and market-level rates.

The investor was looking for a bridge loan to refinance a 105-unit property across six buildings with 2021’s low interest rates. The investor also wanted a rehab budget that would allow them to continue their project of upgrading interior finishes in about half of the units so that they could increase rents and raise the overall class of the property.
