Berkeley Point Capital Provides $8.9M HUD Refinancing in Bay City, MI

January 25, 2018

SheffieldBethesda, MD – Berkeley Point Capital recently closed an $8.9 million FHA 232/223(f) loan to refinance Sheffield Bay Assisted Living & Memory Care, a 66-unit seniors housing community in Bay City, MI.

Mickey Rist, of Berkeley Point Capital, led the transaction that had a complicated ownership encumbrance that would deter most lenders from doing a loan. Berkeley Point came up with a creative structure to overcome the obstacle and payoff the existing bank loan on time, with maximum proceeds, at a very low interest rate fixed for 35 years.  “The non-recourse FHA loan fully amortizes over a 35-year term so our client never has to worry about another balloon note coming due and where interest rates could be at that time,” said Mickey Rist.

Built in 1999 and newly redecorated, Sheffield Bay offers residents a spacious private room with mix of 37 assisted living units and 29 secured memory care units, along with home-like common areas for social activities and relaxation.  Personalized assistance with daily needs is provided to each resident by dedicated and well-trained staff.  Other services include gourmet meals, housekeeping, laundry, medication management and transportation.
