Last month Rubicon funded a $540,000 private money loan for the purchase of a small motel in Soda Springs, CA. The property is located along Highway 80, just west of Truckee and Lake Tahoe. The purchase price was $900,000 so this 1st trust deed loan was 60% loan-to-cost and included 2 years of interest payments. The borrower is starting up a new business on this property. It had been shut down for a while. The term of this private mortgage is 5 years.
