Walker & Dunlop Funds $11M Bridge Loan for Supportive Living Facility Acquisition in Illinois

AURORA, Ill. — Walker & Dunlop Inc. has provided $11 million in bridge financing for The Vistas Fox Valley, a 136-bed supportive living facility in Aurora.

The borrower was Cascade Capital Group, which used the funds to acquire the community. Supportive living is an Illinois program to offer assisted living services while still allowing for government reimbursement.

Walker & Dunlop’s bridge lending program utilizes the company’s own balance sheet to offer short-term, non-recourse loans for properties that are being acquired or repositioned. Joshua Rosen and the bridge lending team structured the financing with a nine-month term, full-term interest-only payments and flexible prepayment options. The borrower plans to replace the loan with HUD financing before the end of the year.
