BIRMINGHAM, Mich., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomfield Capital, a specialty finance firm focused on originating and purchasing commercial real estate loans, has announced the closing of a $2,500,000 senior bridge loan on an 80-room, nationally branded hotel in the Philadelphia MSA. The sponsor was able to negotiate a discounted payoff with its prior lender on the recently constructed hotel.
"Hospitality assets are the first to fall during an economic downturn, and the first to return when general economic conditions improve," stated Brent Truscott, a Principal at Bloomfield Capital. "Therefore, during initial periods of economic growth, many existing lenders are looking at weaker legacy financials from one to two years prior when conducting valuations on their loan portfolios. This backward-looking valuation analysis can create discounted payoff situations for sponsors whose assets are actually performing quite well today. Bloomfield is always looking for these types of value plays and can quickly help a sponsor capitalize on reducing a legacy debt burden."
Bloomfield has been an active lender in hospitality sector and prefers assets with strong management and improving financial condition.
