Bridge Capital


Jernigan Capital is a self-storage REIT that primarily invests alongside professional developers in new self-storage properties.  Understanding the needs of self-storage entrepreneurs is what Jernigan Capital does best.  We are not only a capital partner but also a trusted provider of industry know-how accumulated during more than 35 years in the self-storage industry.

Our bridge financing provides professional developers with capital to refinance upcoming construction loan maturities and provide distributions to equity partners prior to stabilization of their self-storage projects.  Jernigan Capital will consider providing bridge capital for projects that were constructed and opened for business within the past [4] years and are in one of the top 50 US metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs).
