Regional Capital closes a $4,435,000 Bridge loan on a Skilled Nursing Facility
Floyd County, Georgia –100-bed skilled nursing facility receives Bridge Loan
Rome, Georgia (March 2007) – Regional Capital Group, LLC, a private short term real estate lender and investment company specializing in creative financing solutions, closed a $4,435,000 bridge loan on a 100-bed Skilled Nursing Facility. The facility is located on 6.49 acres consisting of approximately 34,510 SF just outside Atlanta, Georgia. It opened in 1983 and is described as a Williamsburg style with large dining, lounge, office, laundry facilities, chapel, and therapy areas. The subject includes space typically designed for Nursing Home occupancy including, offices, a lobby, activity department, physical therapy room, beauty shop, kitchen and dining areas, laundry, therapy and examination rooms, living rooms and nurses’ stations. There are currently 100 beds and the facility carries an average occupancy of approximately 96.00%.
This facility was built by the current operator and his father, who have owned it since its inception in 1983. He also runs two other successful skilled nursing facilities in Georgia. All three have good cash flow. Over the past five years, this facility posted an average occupancy rate of over 95.00%. The current owner recently took over as the operator of the facility following default on the lease obligation by a former National Operator. During the transition period, the borrower made numerous improvements to the facility and spent a large portion of his personal funds in doing so. RCG’s loan will position the facility to receive permanent financing.
RCG structured a six-month, interest-only bridge loan to assist the facility’s Operator in repositioning this facility for long-term permanent financing. A few of the determining factors which ultimately led to the loans approval included; the experience and history of the Operator, the low loan-to-value, the high and consistent occupancy rate of the facility and the exit strategy.
