Korth Direct Mortgage Inc. Announces That It Has Closed On a $100,000,000 Warehouse Line of Credit.
Korth Direct Mortgage Inc. ("KDM") a leading middle-money commercial real estate lender, today announced that on March 31, 2022, it has closed on a $100,000,000 warehouse facility with Signature Bank ("Signature").
The agreement provides access to a repurchase facility in an aggregate amount up to $100,000,000 until 3/14/2025, unless the facility is earlier terminated, in order to allow KDM to close first priority lien mortgages on commercial properties. The flexibility this line provides KDM will allow the company to more rapidly identify and close the types of high-quality, investment grade, institutional quality loans that are the hallmark of our lending model. In addition, the warehouse line is expected to open up new opportunities with respect to KDM's MSNs .
"Having the means to access this line to close on multiple high-quality loans and pool them together allows us to provide more predictable closing dates for our borrowers and access to more attractive Mortgage Secured Notes for our investors," said Holly MacDonald-Korth the company's President and CFO.
She continued, "We are eagerly looking forward to the opportunities that working with a partner like Signature will have for our business, as we look to continue in a sustainable way, the tremendous year over year growth of our originations business."
