Mortgage loan refinancing includes a transaction category commonly termed “commercial cash out refinance”. It occurs when the new mortgage advance from the lender exceeds the existing mortgage loan amount + loan settlement costs. The way commercial cash out refinancing works is that the original mortgage is retired and a new mortgage is created, with the difference between old and new now being made available as “cash out” to the property owner. It is, of course, based on loan to value and debt ratios upon approval and generally awards appreciation for long-term holding. Commercial real estate borrowers typically reflected in partnerships, trusts, corporations, LLCs, Delaware Corporations, estates, and even foreign nationals are able to take advantage of this funding vehicle to release trapped equity in their properties and re-employ it for other secured purposes.
A big advantage in cash out refinancing through Clopton Capital is that we place no restrictions on what the released funds are used for. In contrast, bank lenders typically either don’t countenance commercial cash-out refinancing at all or alternatively they impose severe restrictions on the “freed” money applications. When you work cash-out refinancing with us, you can be assured that the funds will be immediately available at closing. There will be no strings attached even if there are issues involved in other loan arrangements such as foreclosures, principal repayment, unfulfilled collateral requirements, or drawing down lines of credit.
A commercial cash out refinance example:
Property value = $4 million
Existing loan balance = $2 million
Refinance loan amount = $3 million (75% LTV)
Proceeds given to owner = $1 million

Commercial Cash Out Refinance dilemmas: some real client case studies resolved by us.
Case Study 1: An estate borrower contacted us looking to refinance a maturing $3 million business loan for a retail trip center investment property in North Carolina. The estate had purchased the property over 10 years prior and it had substantially increased in value. In next to no time we arranged a cash out mortgage based on 75% of the new appraised value, resulting in a $6 million loan upgrade – thus putting over $2 million of cash out proceeds into the owners pocket after settlement costs. We managed to transition the estate into a refinanced loan with non-recourse, 10-year fixed, with a very competitive rate, and a 30-year amortization.
Case Study 2: An LLC borrower referred to us wanted to cash out refinance an office building in Indiana, with the idea of rearranging a long-term fixed-rate deal for loan redemption. Even though tenancy stability was a little uncertain we were able to organize a $2.8 million refinance based on a 15-year amortization and fixed rate of interest with one of our close-relationship insurance companies. The borrower realized almost $1 million in cash out proceeds and a new manageable loan containing a competitive interest rate and redemption terms.
Case Study 3: A partnership entity had purchased a commercial retail center in Wisconsin for all-cash. At the same time, it had entered an acquisition commitment to invest in multifamily apartment buildings with a very short time-line and an all-cash closing. Essentially, the client was relying on us to very quickly recapitalize the retail center to extract a substantial refinance cash-out as the only means of funding the new real estate. We moved into action, finding a trusted lender to advance over $4 million to the partnership based on a 75% LTV non-recourse loan, thus allowing him to acquire additional properties on time.
