Red Mortgage Capital executes HUD refinancing of bridge loan

Miami—RED Mortgage Capital LLC recently completed an $11.4 million HUD-insurance refinancing of a balance sheet bridge loan to complete two acquisitions for Livewell Senior Living in Florida.

As a result of Livewell’s exceptional management over the past few years, it had an opportunity to execute an in-the-money purchase option. Livewell had to have 100 percent confidence in RED’s ability to close on its balance sheet within a narrow time frame. RED not only closed the transaction in under 60 days, it was also able to provide financing for the full amount of the purchase option. RED Mortgage Capital immediately filed a HUD loan application and refinanced the acquisition financing.

Livewell at Courtyard Plaza is a 68-unit Assisted Living facility located in North Miami, Florida with 102 Assisted Living beds and 18 Memory Care beds. Livewell added Limited Mental Health (LMH) licensing to the Courtyard Plaza facility license to allow them to accept residents in need of limited mental health care.

Livewell at Coral Plaza is located in Margate, Fla., which is part of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach Metropolitan Area. It is a 100-unit Assisted Living facility with 120 Assisted Living beds and 20 Memory Care beds.
