NEW YORK, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The proceeds of this $13.50MM, 75% loan-to-value mortgage was used by the borrower, Hughes Equities, LLC, for the repayment of existing floating rate debt, attempting to head off a rise in long term interest rates. The non recourse, mortgage had a 10 year fixed term and a 25 year amortization schedule, with no personal guarantees.
Western Michigan Apartments, a 711 unit portfolio, comprised of 6 residential complexes, is located in Kentwood, Wyoming & Kalamazoo, Michigan. An underwriter from Terrace commented that the properties are in excellent locations in the two largest MSAs in West Michigan; Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo which are both experiencing economic growth in health care, life sciences, and higher education. The Grand Rapids Metropolitan Area, which is anchored by the cities of Grand Rapids and Wyoming, is the fastest growing region in Michigan and the second-fastest-growing region in the upper Midwest. Located in southwest Michigan, the Kalamazoo-Portage MSA is comprised of Kalamazoo and Van Buren counties. Kalamazoo County possesses one of the most diversified manufacturing environments in the state of Michigan, with more than 500 firms representing virtually every aspect of the manufacturing field.
