What Is a Multifamily Bridge Loan and How Is It Structured?

Multifamily bridge loans provide financing for the purchase, renovation, stabilization and refinancing of multifamily real estate. A multifamily bridge loan is a short-term or interim financing option, often used by borrowers when speed and flexibility is required. Multifamily bridge terms can vary depending on the loan type and lender. Wilshire Finance Partners is a direct lender using its capital to fund bridge loans from $500,000 to $10,000,000 secured by multifamily properties nationwide.

Benefits of Multifamily Bridge Loans

While bank and agency-based loans offer permanent financing for some investors, there are many transactions where expedited timeframes are crucial to making the deal happen. Multifamily bridge loans provide fast financing and certainty of execution, especially when a transaction may fall outside of traditional lending parameters. For example, a multifamily investor seeking to acquire an apartment building may find themselves in a situation with multiple bidders and cannot afford to wait for permanent financing if they want to act fast. Bank or agency financing is not as nimble as a private credit bridge lender. Wilshire can quickly expedite these requests and/or tailor the loan to meet the buyer’s needs.
