Case Studies of Self-Storage Financing and Loans with Clopton Capital
Case Study 1: A partnership came to us to refinance and cash out of two self-storage facilities located in Washington and Portland. None of the partners wanted to guarantee the loans. They were looking for flexibility in prepayment and long-term fixed rates. We were able to structure a 70% LTV, $4 million & $3 million deals for the two properties with a bank partner that gave them flexible prepayment, a low 7-year fixed rate, 30-year amortization, with non-recourse.
Case Study 2: An investor through his LLC wanted to acquire and turnaround a self-storage facility in NC that had been under-performing due to mismanagement by the current owner. He wanted a non-recourse short-term deal that would get him acquisition dollars and rehab money. We structured a $5 million bridge loan with non-recourse, 70% of stabilized value, interest only with a very competitive rate, and it included rehab money for the borrower to execute his plan and implement his turnaround plans.
Case Study 3: A trust was looking to cash out refinance a self-storage facility located in Florida. The borrower was looking for maximum leverage, non-recourse, and maximum cash flow. We structured a $7 million CMBS loan that got the borrower 75% loan to current value, over $3 million cash out proceeds in his pocket, a very competitive 10-year fixed rate, and a 30-year amortization. This deal maximized both his cash proceeds and forward cash flow, all while keeping the deal non-recourse.
Self-storage property leveraging is an all-embracing real estate loan arena that begins with possibly a straightforward purchase transaction but reaches further afield into the world of new construction loans or securing bank mortgage advances for renovations or unfinished buildings. Refinancing for maturing self-storage real estate mortgages or those under pressure from rising variable interest rates is an everyday activity. Most importantly, if you have held your self-storage facility for a long time with resultant appreciation and you want a hard money cash out, this too is considered to be a real possibility.
