Built in 1972, the property consists of 24 two-story garden style buildings containing a mixture of one, two and three bedroom units situated on 11.7 acres. The borrower intends to improve performance at the property through active on-site property management and the implementation of a $1 million renovation program. Eagles Pointe is the fifth residential complex acquired by the borrower in the past sixteen months, three of which were funded by Edgewood Capital, and the first in Florida.
Edgewood's note finance and bridge lending program provides the perfect financing solution to borrowers that are seeking to acquire non-performing loans or non-stabilized properties in need of re-tenanting and significant capital improvements. Jonathan Levirne notes that "Edgewood specializes in providing financing for investments that are not available for conventional debt. We offer distinct advantages over our competitors with the ability to provide non-recourse financing and to close within a short two weeks."
