Jmbrealty Company - Full Service Company - FROM IDENTIFICATION TO CLOSING!
OPPORTUNITY:Bank repossessed 27,000 sqft office building, 47% occupied with short-term leases, neglected for two years while property went through foreclosure. Bank eager to sell. Acquisition price well below reproduction costs.
Is there potential to create value? Once this opportunity was identified, the next step was to analyze the properties' potential, determine how to put together an acquisition team, raise the equity and secure a loan.
Property was thoroughly analyzed including economics, condition, future potential and market by Jmbrealty Services, Inc and CBC Griffin Associates. Once the analysis was completed and the project deemed feasible, this investment opportunity was presented to equity partners to determine interest. With interest established, a team consisting of investors, property managers, leasing agents, financial services and vendors were brought together to fine tune the details. A purchase offer was presented by the team to the selling bank, negotiated and finally accepted by the bank.
In the meantime, Jmbrealty Services, Inc. commenced its pursuit of developing lender interests; needless to say, it was not an easy task with the current high vacancy and the generally difficult lending environment. While the rest of the details were being attended to, the investors made a decision to go with one of the lender's proposals only to have them pull out at the last minute.
An acquisition extension was then negotiated with the selling bank which gave time to establish a new lender. Thankfully Jmbrealty Services Inc. maintains great relationships with several lenders. The new lender understood the transaction as well as the risks and opportunity. Within two weeks of receiving the loan commitment the appraisal was done (spot on the Jmbrealty's projections!!) and the loan was closed.
This type of transaction is extremely difficult to accomplish; especially with financing involved. Only experienced professionals can make this happen - FROM IDENITY TO COMPLETION. This is where experience and ability to react is an essential ingredient. This is why working with Jmbrealty Services, Inc is your best choice. Give us a call at 612-836-1111 or 612-868-5353.

Featured Transaction:$5,200,000 Permanent Mortgage Financing and TI and Leasing Commission Line of Credit for an office building in Minneapolis, MN. James M. Bifaro, Principal of Jmbrealty Services, Inc. arranged this two-tier financing program to accommodate borrower’s specific and challenging needs.
The Permanent Mortgage Financing was FIXED FOR 10 YEARS with an interest rate of 4.75%, a fixed rate term of 10 years, amortization based on 25 years and a loan amount based o 80% loan to value.
A Floating Rate Line of Credit was established to fund projected TI and Leasing Expense on vacant space. Once the line is extended and the building meets lease up requirements, the Line of Credit will be merged into the Fixed Rate portion of the loan with the same terms as the original loan.
Challenges: Despite an excellent site, this office building was 80% leased and no other lease opportunities insight. The construction loan was maturing and the current large bank construction lender was putting the pressure on to get this loan paid off.
In addition, there were multiple equity partners who refused to sign any form of guarantee. Institutional lender’s underwriting terms were very conservative and did not meet the needs to pay off the existing loan. 25% of the original tenant leases were maturing in three years.
Solution: Jmbr contacted several of its lending sources that it has long established relationships with and developed this financing program that met all of the borrowers needs and overcame the challenges.
Results: There are plenty of Mortgage Bankers out there that can make phone calls to lenders. At Jmbr – we add 35 years of experience in every facet of Commercial Real Estate, tremendous experience proven track record, great lender sources with established relationships.
