Eagle Group Finance supplies $3.1M for assisted living facility buy

Vista del SolLos Angeles—Private money lender Eagle Group Finance has provided a local investor operating as Vista del Sol Propco LLC with a $3.1 million first mortgage loan for the acquisition of Vista del Sol, an assisted living and skilled nursing facility in Culver City.

Eagle was able to fund the non-recourse, interest-only loan within 10 days of application allowing the experienced healthcare operator to quickly seize on the off-market opportunity.  The loan includes an initial term of 12 months, with a one-year extension to provide the borrower the necessary time to complete the lengthy process of obtaining permanent financing through the HUD/FHA Insured program.

“There is a significant shortage of quality nursing care, hospice and assisted living facilities, in West Los Angeles,” said Eagle Group Finance President Brian Good.  “The borrower has proven himself as a skilled operator providing exemplary patient care and is building a significant portfolio to meet that need.”

Built in 1956, Vista del Sol is located at 11620 Washington Boulevard and features a 50-bed Skilled Nursing Facility and eight assisted care resident cottages. Philip Cohen of Mansfield Equities arranged the financing.
