BIRMINGHAM, Mich., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomfield Capital, a specialty finance firm focused on originating and purchasing commercial real estate loans, has announced the closing of a $3.3 million senior bridge loan on a 240-unit apartment complex located in Houston, TX. The sponsor purchased this asset through a short sale, and Bloomfield structured the senior bridge financing to allow for the acquisition of the property, along with a capital improvement reserve to renovate vacant units.
"This is the type of transaction that Bloomfield is known for: a sub-performing asset in a strong market, purchased by a well-capitalized sponsor in need of a fast closing," stated Jason Jarjosa, a partner at Bloomfield Capital. "We've recently financed over $20 million in apartment renovation purchases in the Houston marketplace. Strong job growth coupled with a limited supply of affordable housing alternatives is driving occupancy and rents on B and C class apartment communities in Houston and throughout Texas."
Bloomfield has been an active lender and equity provider on apartment properties, as well as other asset classes throughout the country.
