DEBT

 DEBT- Every situation is different, therefore and thus  the best type of loan will vary.  An experienced advisor can save a  borrower considerable amounts of money by going to the right source.   The quality of the asset and the leverage desired all dictate what might  be available.  For example, Also long term as opposed to an  intermediate term “Bridge” loan is different.  Mezzanine debt can get  the leverage up to a higher amount but is more costly.  Construction  debt also requires a different skill set by the lender and is priced  differently.
