Private Money Loan for 2 Gas Stations in Northern California

Last week Rubicon Mortgage Fund closed a private money bridge loan of $875,000 to help an investor acquire a gas station in Citrus Heights, Sacramento. The purchase price of the gas station was $950,000. The borrower owns a gas station in Oakland which was owned free-and-clear. We cross colateralized the Oakland station to give the borrower enough cash for the acquisition in Sacramento. Rubicon now has a 1st trust deed on both properties. We estimate the combined value of the 2 gas stations to be around $2 million which puts our bridge loan at under 50% LTV. The term of this loan is 2 years with a 1-year option to extend.

We feel the value is around $750,000 now so our 1st private mortgage loan is a 40% LTV. The value will probably be around $900,000 once the improvements have been made. This 2-bedroom home is tenant-occupied. Our loan term is 1 year.
