Silver Arch Capital Closes $4.75 Million Loan on Michigan Assisted Living Facility

Proceeds Refinance Existing Mortgage for Belle Oakes Living Center

Hackensack, NJ, October 01, 2015 – Silver Arch Capital Partners has closed a $4.75 million loan for the owners of Belle Oakes Living Center, a 48-unit, 32,000-square-foot assisted living facility on 20 acres in Lake City, MI, announced Jeffrey Wolfer, president and CEO of the Hackensack, NJ-based private lender. The loan will allow the owners of the award-winning Belle Oakes to continue to streamline operations and obtain conventional financing.

“The borrowers needed to refinance an existing mortgage and pay off other debt related to a recent 11-unit expansion of the property,” said Wolfer. “The facility’s operations have been improved and the cost structure has been lowered by the owners, resulting in a property that is currently performing at a high level, generating substantial net income.

“The financing has allowed the borrowers to consolidate their debt and align debt service payments with cash flow,” said Wolfer. “The loan was very attractive because the borrowers have shown they are excellent operators. The assisted living/healthcare industry is in a high growth mode, which should be attractive to conventional takeout lenders.”

Constructed in 2002 and renovated in 2012, Belle Oakes Living Center is situated in Missaukee County, Michigan. “The region’s stabilized housing market and improving economy indicate favorable operating trends going forward,” said Wolfer.
