Walker & Dunlop Provides $12.8M Financing for Skilled Nursing Facility in Illinois

AURORA, Ill. — Walker & Dunlop Inc. has provided $12.8 million in bridge financing for The Grove Fox Valley, a 156-bed skilled nursing facility in Aurora, approximately 40 miles west of downtown Chicago.

The debt was structured and provided by Walker & Dunlop’s bridge lending program, which utilizes its balance sheet to offer short-term, nonrecourse loans for properties that are being repositioned as part of a new business strategy.

Led by Joshua Rosen, the Walker & Dunlop team structured the financing to cover 100 percent of the acquisition cost in addition to working capital and capital expenditures for the owner, Cascade Capital Group.

The loan includes a nine-month term, flexible prepayment options and full-term interest-only payments. The plan is to replace the loan with HUD financing in early 2020.
