Our Expertise

The first step toward moving your storage facility from groundbreaking to grand opening is often a construction loan. The financing is typically going to be a floating rate mortgage and may require a personal guarantee; it may also have a "mini permanent period" that will take effect at the completion of construction. A construction loan provides 80% to 90% of a project's development costs. These loans are often provided by local banks, but Security Mortgage Group brings national lenders to the table, providing options that may not be available from the local banks. One attractive element that we offer is a fixed rate construction loan with a fixed rate term after closing. This will remove the risk of rising interest rates during the critical construction and lease-up stages of your new facility.

When financing that tricky lease-up period for your storage facility, we understand that the current occupancy may not paint the truest image of the strength and potential of your facility. So, we work with our lenders to demonstrate the facility's maximum value while trying to incorporate near-term lease-up trends. For stabilized facilities, Security Mortgage Group is able to provide some of the lowest interest rate spreads and most competitive rates and terms in the industry.

Our philosophy is to always be available, over-deliver on promises, and make sure we understand the needs of our clients.
