Bridge Financing

Dominion Commercial Finance offers bridge financing on a variety of property types:

  • Retail shopping centers

  • Mixed-used projects

  • Multi-family commercial

  • Office buildings

  • Hotels

  • Warehouses

Reasons businesses may apply for bridge financing:


  • Need to finance a project while permit approval is obtained?

  • Partner buy-out

  • Avoiding Foreclosure

  • Need to close quickly on a property


When we finance a bridge loan, a repayment strategy is in place, so that the loan is repaid loan either through the sale or refinance of the property. Bridge loans are offered for terms of 6-36 months and often can be refinanced into a long-term loan.

Dominion Commercial Finance Bridge financing is a cheaper alternative to private lending, while being just as fast and with flexible underwriting. Both are non-standard loans acquired due to short-term or uncommon situations. A bridge loan term may be closed, only available for a pre-determined time, or open with no fixed payoff date. There may be a required payoff after a specific date.

Mezzanine Financing

Mezzanine financing fills the gap between an owner’s equity and traditional bank financing, when the maximum loan amount could be capped by requirements of collateral. A mezzanine loan is often employed in buyouts, growth financing and other types of private equity transactions:


  • Encourage extensions with debt paydowns to existing lenders

  • Discounted debt note acquisitions

  • Partner buyouts and owner recapitalizations

  • Capital Expenditure & tenant improvements

Mezzanine financing, also known as mezzanine debt, delivers a substantial contribution to a business’ long-term value creation and therefore results in stable returns during the investment.

By combining the features of debt and equity instruments, mezzanine debt provides borrowers financial flexibility. This type of loan allows a borrower to obtain financing based on its cash flow rather than on traditional requirements of collateral. If the loan is not paid back in time and in full, the financing will convert to an ownership or equity interest in the business.

Our mezzanine property financing solutions are available for companies that can demonstrate a proven track record and has a great reputation for their products and services.

Our specialists are here to help you determine if mezzanine financing is suitable for your needs and how your company can best benefit from our range of capital solutions.

As leading finance providers, we can help you with additional funding when you require quick and seamless solutions.

Dominion Commercial Finance has a complete understanding of all aspects of this type of loan and we will accelerate the process of obtaining mezzanine financing. Contact one of our senior partners today for more information.

This loan has a term of at least five (5) years, unlike bridge loans, which have shorter terms. Typically, the loan amortization period reflects the life of the asset.

Structured Joint Venture Financing

Structured joint venture financing maximizes cash flow potential for the borrower by including the lender as an additional investor in the project. Similar to a partnership, but only for a specific project, a joint venture is a contractual agreement between two or more parties to share in the costs, profits and losses associated with the venture.


A borrower may not initially be searching for a partner in a project, but some recognize the value of a sharing equity in a joint venture over traditional financing. When joining together with additional investors, your business gains a competitive advantage, since it is now able to pursue larger opportunities. An investor should look to partner with a lender who can create value for the project in ways that they can’t. This value can be anything from more effective property management to asset rehabilitation.


Why choose Dominion Commercial Finance for Structured Joint Venture Financing?

Structured joint equity financing requires the sharing of resources, which help companies lower their costs, fuse connections to another company’s technology, boost revenues, increase their customer base or expand product distribution. Dominion’s primary focus is to extend 1116these possibilities while lowering the exposure of risk.

This type of loan can be complicated and is not the right choice for all projects, but some projects make more sense as a joint venture. Contact the senior brokers at Dominion today to discuss your financing needs and learn if a structured joint venture financing is the right choice for your business.

Dominion Commercial Finance can provide the following acquisition financing options to borrowers for the acquisition of commercial properties:


Debt Financing: 

The cheapest method of financing an acquisition bid is debt and it can take many forms. The amount of debt that is available to finance an acquisition change depending on the projected cash flow of the combined company. The financial health of both companies is taken into consideration.

Equity Financing:

Equity carries the most risk because it has no claim to any assets. It is a more expensive form of capital than debt. This type of financing requires a borrower to relinquish some ownership in the combined company.

Stock Swaps:

If a borrower already owns stock in the target company, it is possible to use that stock to purchase all or some shares for the acquisition. This is a common practice among publicly traded companies. A stock swap in private transactions is more difficult because the acquiring stock cannot be quickly sold.

Here at Dominion Commercial Finance, we provide a range of commercial financing solutions for business acquisition needs.
