When to Use Bridge Financing for Multifamily Real Estate
Question: I own 11 single family rental properties. I just found a 12 unit in Ohio that I would like to purchase. The purchase price is $750,000. It has 6 units occupied and the property needs a new roof and some interior improvements throughout.
