Just how did NorthStar Realty Finance Corp. fund its $875 million acquisition of a 32-property senior living portfolio? They hired Chris Fenton and Jay Healy of Berkadia Seniors Housing and Healthcare to secure $648.2 million of Fannie Mae debt. The 10-year fixed-rate financing features a 4.17% interest rate, a 73.5% loan-to-value and a 30-year amortization. All individual loans were cross collateralized and cross defaulted. The 32 properties are in 12 states with 4,012 independent living units and average occupancy in excess of 90%.
