New York, NY — September 29, 2022 — Lument recently closed a Fannie Mae DUS® loan to refinance Eaglecrest Retirement Community, a 102-unit independent and assisted living community in Salina, Kansas. The transaction was led by Lument Managing Directors Bill Wilson, Doug Harper, and Casey Moore.
“We were pleased to secure a loan that covered all of this sponsor’s goals, including refinancing with no prepayment penalty outside of standard yield maintenance,” said Wilson. “This Fannie Mae loan also features a competitive rate and a significant cash-out for the client.”
Jim Klausman, president and CEO of Midwest Health, Inc., which manages Eaglecrest, agreed. “Eaglecrest continues to be a tremendously successful community and our partners at Lument recognized that,” said Klausman. “After reviewing the financial strength of the property, Lument’s team offered us a competitive agreement that made sense for both of us.”
Midwest Health is a family-owned-and-operated network of roughly 80 senior living communities located across Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Illinois.
