Bellwether Enterprise Real Estate Capital closed a cash-out refinance for a large active adult community in Placentia, California. Owned and operated by Mesa Management, Emerald Isle features a total of 422 units, with both one- and two-bedroom options ranging in size from 588 to 1,128 square feet. There are also numerous amenities, from a fitness center and clubhouse to a putting green and heated swimming pool/spa. It was built in 2004.
Working through Freddie Mac, Bellwether Enterprise’s Jason Krupoff originated $82.487 million in financing for the property. The 10-year loan includes five years of interest only at an interest rate below 3% and was underwritten at a 60% loan-to-value ratio and 1.45x debt service coverage ratio. That puts the property’s value at nearly $137.5 million, or $325,000 per unit.
