Red Mortgage Capital completes $19.9M financing for three seniors communities

Bryan, Sandusky & Bucyrus, Ohio—Red Mortgage Capital LLC has provided $19.9 million in permanent financing for three assisted living senior communities in north-central Ohio. The firm utilized FHA Section 232/223(f) mortgage insurances and Ginnie Mae Mortgage Backed Securities to pay off interim financing that related company Red Capital Partners LLC has provided for the acquisition of the three properties by Premier Senior Living LLC.

The loans were funded for The Inn at Fountain Park in Bryan, Ohio; The Inn at Westbrook in Upper Sandusky, Ohio; and The Inn at Orchard Park in Bucyrus, Ohio. The 35-year fully amortizing loans are non-recourse. Though the owner originally sought permanent acquisition financing, when it became apparent that such financing was not available in the required timeframe, Red Capital Partners stepped in to bridge the timing gap with an interim bridge loan.

“As a non-bank financial institutions, we can move quickly on bridge-to-permanent solutions to help clients secure opportunities like this, where we bridge the timing difference until the permanent capital structure can be delivered,” says Christian Mauger, senior managing director of Red Capital Partners LLC.
