Bridge Lending Small Multi-Family – Commercial bridge loans made easy by Gelt Financial

Multifamily, a classification of residential housing where multiple units (typically greater than 4), are within one or more structures within in a complex, has become one of the most sought after real estate asset classes over the last few years. While debt options are abundant for larger and institutional quality properties, debt is frequently unavailable for smaller projects and private investors. Due to the small size, multifamily bridge loans under $5 Million are very hard to come by and even harder to obtain when the property is not stabilized and borrower is not experienced and of the highest quality.

At Gelt Financial, we specialize in small-balance multifamily bridge lending, specifically those under $5 Million. We understand the requirements of the investors throughout the investment lifecycle, starting from the acquisition to the stabilization and because of that, we are able to understand get comfortable with most unique situations.
