Anthony DiMarco, also a managing director, secured financing for two separate manufactured home community owners. A loan of $3,250,000 was secured on the 253-site Creekside Estates in Grovetown, Georgia for a repeat client. With 40% park owned homes, Anthony worked with the lender to provide a long-term fixed rate and 30-year amortization. Anthony also secured a loan with a rate under 4.5% for Ridgebrook and Valley Hills Mobile Home Communities totaling 736 sites in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The $6,650,000 non-recourse, long-term fixed rate loan closed in under 40 days.
