Mag Mile Capital Completes $7.4 Million Loan for Holiday Inn Express in Thriving Texas College Town of San Marcos

SAN MARCOS, TexasJuly 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mag Mile Capital announced that Mike Taylor , SVP of Originations, finalized a loan for $7,475,000 to refinance a four-story, 106-room Holiday Inn Express in the riverfront town of San Marcos. Well-positioned within the Austin and San Antonio Highway Corridor, the hotel is a popular destination in an idyllic college town that was declared by Forbes Magazine in 2019 as the Best Place to Retire in Texas. 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 hotels, self-storage, multifamily, industrial, retail, office, and other commercial real estate property.

“This loan provided some unique challenges because the sponsor’s previous loan was at a much higher rate and was hindering cash flow,” said Mike Taylor. “And due to the lack of clarity on how to underwrite hotels, along with a sharp increase in demand patterns since COVID-19, common practice let lenders, bond investors and rating agencies rely on 2019 figures. But in the case of our property and the San Marcos market at large, there has been demonstrated sustainable growth. It was crucial we convince the lender that this growth was sustainable to get them to underwrite the higher cash flows. Fortunately, this was possible through research and presentation of the new demand generators for the property.”
