Mag Mile Capital Secures $1.575 Million Loan for Retail Property in Great Smoky Mountains Community of Highlands, North Carolina

WESTPORT, Conn.July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mag Mile Capital announced that Matt Weilgus, SVP and Head of Originations, successfully closed a loan for $1,575,000 to help a client purchase a former Bank of America branch location in the bustling mountain town of Highlands, NC. The 7,200 sq. ft., two-story building is located in a central community surrounded by lush forest beauty and natural wonders, often frequented by seasonal tourists – making the property an excellent location for a business. Mag Mile Capital is a boutique firm that offers preferred access nationwide to high-leverage, non-recourse, commercial real estate bridge loans and permanent mortgages with cash out for retail, multifamily, self-storage, industrial, hotels, office, and other commercial real estate asset classes.

“This was a rather complicated deal because the building is currently vacant,” said Matt Weilgus. “But after we received a call from Shaun Weinstock – one of the partners in Pine Holdings – we were happy to help assist the financing. The broker held the below-market interest rate for us, even in the face of a rapidly rising interest-rate environment. And we negotiated for the additional tenant improvement reserve needed to fund future expenses for the borrower. It was a good deal overall and everyone is pleased.”
