Chicago, IL, August 14, 2013 The BSC Group, LLC has arranged debt financing for Storage Pros Management LLC's acquisition of an 8-property self-storage portfolio in Knoxville, Tennessee. The structured financing package includes a first mortgage and a mezzanine loan totaling 85% LTV with an interest-only period.
With the closing of this transaction, The BSC Group has now arranged a total of $48.5MM of debt financing on 20 properties in five separate transactions for Storage Pros in 2013, according to Devin Huber, Principal of The BSC Group, LLC, who was responsible for sourcing and negotiating this financing.

"The capital markets are very liquid at the moment as lenders continue to compete aggressively for quality deals with quality sponsors. This is a market-leading transaction as evidenced by the loan terms. What makes this transaction even more exceptional is it was closed during one of the more volatile pricing periods that the CMBS market has experienced since the launch of CMBS 2.0," added Huber. "It's always a pleasure to work with exceptional clients that are best-in-class operators like Storage Pros."
