Introduction: Bridge & Mezzanine Loans

Expansion of real estate markets requires additional capital, particularly in transitioning markets. When banks, often the traditional source of capital, pull back, the alternative lender plays an important role in the funding and development of primary and transitioning markets. This reality coupled with credit tightening from traditional sources, there is an increased demand for bridge and sub-performing loans. TRC has identified an opportunity in the marketplace to provide an attractive rate of return to investors looking to capitalize on the strong real estate market, while adding diversification to an investment portfolio.

This program is specifically designed for properties that are either stabilized or are in need of minor to moderate renovation or other value-add strategy. Our bridge loan program is often used to finance stabilized properties while TRC underwrites the permanent financing or fund moderate rehabilitation or retenanting where the Borrower required to complete a value add strategy before securing permanent financing through an FHA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac execution.

TRC offers a middle-market bridge lending platform for multifamily partners, investors, and clients who need flexibility for time sensitive and complex transactions. This includes special situations or other circumstances where conventional financing is not readily available.
