HUD 232/223(f) Loans
HUD 232/223(f) Loans HUD-Insured Loans for the Purchase and Refinancing of Senior Housing, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing Projects
Purchase and Refinance Loans for Senior Living Properties
The HUD 232 loan program is an effective way for developers to build or substantially rehabilitate a senior housing, assisted living, or skilled nursing project. However, the traditional HUD 232 loan cannot finance as-is purchases or refinances of properties. That's where HUD 232/223(f) loans can be utilized. Like HUD 232 loans, HUD 232/223(f) loans use HUD 232 LEAN processing, reducing approval times, and are intended for financing facilities with 20+ patients. And, like all HUD multifamily loans, these loans are non-recourse, offer generous leverage allowances, and are assumable with FHA approval.
At Commercial Real Estate Loans, we're committed to helping developers and investors fulfill America's need for safe, high-qualify senior housing. With the demand for senior housing in the U.S. constantly expanding, the industry has a lot of room for growth, and HUD multifamily loans, like the HUD 232 and HUD 232/223(f) loans, are some of most affordable ways to support that growth.
