Acquisition and Property Repositioning
  • Acquisition loan financing options can range from simple to complex. We can structure creative solutions for existing projects and opportunistic investments with property level cash flow.
  • Our dedicated team will structure a creative solution to meet your specific needs in challenging turnaround circumstances.
Term Loans
  • Staying competitive in this financial climate may require refinancing debt, updating equipment, or expanding or renovating an existing facility.
  • We offer three-, five-, seven- and ten-year term loans, at the borrowers’ option, of fixed or floating rates on most major property types.
Credit Lines
  • We offer credit lines on a secured project basis to qualified entities.
  • Credit Lines allow you to borrow as much as you need up to your limit while only paying interest on the amount you have used. This allows for ultimate flexibility to decide how often you want to drawdown.

Things we care about

affordable housing

Living in the same city where you work fosters a critically important connection to the community and people you serve. Yet for firefighters, police officers, teachers, nurses and millions of other low- and moderate-income workers in urban areas, it can be a herculean challenge to find safe, affordable housing near where they work.

Last week we did something for the first time in our 94 year history; we entered into an agreement to acquire another bank. I am thrilled to soon officially welcome New Resource Bank into the Amalgamated family.
