Some of Financial Compound's recent transactions

$16.1 million southern CA rent control apartments..  These are acquire & reposition bridge loans for rent control apartments.  Typically bought with $700 rents and increasing to $1,800 - $2.200 upon renovation after tenants vacate.  Financial Compound was charged with finding a lender to make a 70% LTC loan.  Most lenders in this space require a minimum 1.0 debt coverage ratio on the existing NOI.  That typically translates to a 45% LTC loan on these types of transactions.  Financial Compound combed the market for this repeat client and curated a few institutional lenders happy to roll with us at 70% LTC, 4.25%, 5 year term, interest only, 1/2% lender fee, no prepayment penalty.  5 business day close (our quickest ever!).

$2.1 million Office Building financing, all MTM tenants, minimal DCR.Borrower's business plan was to vacate all tenants, which were at below market rents, and replace with a single tenant long-term NNN lease.  So this deal offered limited cashflow and just a break even debt coverage ratio.  Financial Compound found hard money allowing the borrower to acquire the property as 100% owner with no partners.  Rate 9.5%, 3 years, interest-only, non-recourse, no prepayment penalty 2% lender fee, 13 day close.

$6.1 million in car wash construction takeout loans, Southern CA.  Hard money bride loan until the properties for permanent loans.  65% of cost, 9.00% rate, 3 year term, 2% lender fee.  Non-recourse.  These are ground-up, highly stylized and unique facilities on outparcels in larger centers, on signalized high traffic intersections.  This operator accepts only credit card.  Approximately 40% of the revenue stream is from monthly pre-paid accounts allowing for more predictable underwriting.

Can Trump trump the Trade Balance?
Ramifications of trade with China are already being felt domestically. Is POTUS too late to be the hero?  Stock market analysts seem to think Trump still has time to sprinkle some red, white, and blue pixie dust to fix the problem.  At the time of this writing, both stocks and bonds rallied, so people are optimistic.  With the trade balance in ceasefire mode all parties can take a respite to cool off.  If a tweet from POTUS on twitter can affect the markets, Financial Compound thinks Trump could pull something out of his sleeve and get us out of this mess.
