Harborview Capital Partners, a commercial real estate finance, equity and advisory firm, recently announced a few HUD transactions. First, on behalf of a repeat client, Ephraim Kutner and Jonathan Kutner arranged a $7 million HUD loan for a 96-bed skilled nursing facility in Lake County, Illinois. The non-recourse loan came with a 35-year amortization schedule.

Then, Harborview took advantage of the low-interest rate environment to refinance several previously placed HUD loans for their clients. The Harborview team achieved substantial rate reductions on loans exceeding $53 million for skilled nursing facilities totaling more than 450 beds in Illinois and New Jersey. That reduced annual payments for the borrower, at almost no cost. Sounds like a no-brainer to us. Gershon Yarmush, Chief Credit Officer, led the initiative.
