HOWELL, Mich. — Capital One has provided a $13.2 million, fixed-rate HUD loan to refinance an 88-bed skilled nursing facility in Howell, approximately 50 miles northwest of Detroit.
The unnamed facility has earned a five-star rating from Medicare, and was 98.9 percent occupied at the time of refinancing. The name of the facility and borrower were not disclosed.
Joshua Rosen of Capital One originated the loan. The transaction enabled the borrower to replace bank debt with long-term financing and to recoup capital expenditures.
“The substantial additional cash flow that this transaction frees up illustrates the benefits of HUD’s 232/223(f) program,” says Rosen. “The borrowers are benefiting from both a lower rate and an extended amortization period, which in the case of this loan is 35 years.”
