Investment Summary

This is an opportunity to invest in a series of Notes ("Notes") tied to a senior secured loan on 5,535 SF luxury single family residence in the exclusive American University Park neighborhood of Northwest, Washington, DC. The Sponsor, SGA Companies, purchased the home in January for $1,200,000 in an off-market transaction and plans to spend $265,000 in minor improvements to renovate the property before putting it back on the market.

Key Deal Points

Highly Desirable Affluent Neighborhood

American University Park is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Washington, DC with average home sales price of roughly $800k. Within close proximity to the amenities of Tenleytown and a short commute to downtown DC, the area is extremely desirable for home buyers and families looking for the benefits of the suburbs but the convenience of the city.

Low Basis $/SF

The senior loan has an as-is basis of less than $240/SF while average homes in the area have recently sold for 2x or 3x that value.

Property in Excellent Condition

The home itself is in excellent condition with no significant deferred maintenance and existing top end finishes. The first floor commercial office provided turn-off to buyers not interested in handling the required renovation work on their own.
