Bridge Capital Lending

In the pursuit of attractive yields for our Client/Investors, Diversified Funding Group, LLC’s primary concern is the preservation of investor capital. We serve the southwestern part of the U.S.; Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. Most of our transactions occur in cities accessible via a one-hour flight from Phoenix. DFG has identified a strong market niche in providing bridge financing for real estate transactions ranging from three months to two years, and mini-perms from three to five years. We are committed to providing a high level of service to investors and borrowers alike and believe that the combination of institutional quality underwriting and risk management together with an entrepreneurial spirit in structuring our loan investments has contributed to our outstanding results.

Our loan amounts range between $1,000,000 and $30,000,000.  Base term is up to 18 months. Loan types are interest only with a traditional LTV, or profit participation with a higher LTV.

Bridge Loans

DFG's short-term loans generally range in duration from 3 months to 2 years.  These loans are funded in time intervals ranging from 10 to 30 days from the delivery of a complete due diligence package by the borrower.  While pricing of these loans are higher than traditional (bank) loans they are underwritten by the same standards as conventional loans and designed for qualified borrowers with immediate funding needs.

Junior Tranche Financing

Loan structure that accommodates higher LTV ratio (75% to 80%) and does not involve profit participation.  Borrowers must have good experience and have excellent credit. This loan structure would include a senior loan participant of up to 60% to 65% of the loan request leaving a shortfall of up to 20%.  DFG may then fund that shortfall in subordinate position to the senior lender while sharing in the same deed of trust. 

Participating Loans

Under certain circumstances DFG (through its funding arm and its public and private capital sources) may fund participating loans in a loan to cost ratio up to 95% of project acquisition costs. The loan will be secured by a senior lien and once the loan is paid back including interest due, the investor/lender will participate in profits according to terms negotiated within a finalized loan agreement. In most cases, preferred return is also paid as interest payable monthly, quarterly or annually.

Non-Traditional Loans
  • Land Banking - Acquisition and development of raw land from home-builder/developer to finished lots.

  • Distressed Debt - Acquisition of non-performing loans from lender portfolios in various stages of entitlement

  • Recapitalization - Restructuring of project debt and equity.

  • Preferred Equity / Joint Ventures
