PHOENIX, ARIZONA (January 24, 2022) – Alex Quenzler, vice president Northmarq’s Phoenix debt/equity team secured acquisition financing for Lake Livingston RV Park. The 42-site manufactured housing community is located at 739 FM 2457 in Livingston, Texas. The transaction was structured with a 5-year term with a 20-year amortization schedule. Northmarq secured the permanent-fixed loan for the borrower through its relationship with a regional bank. 

The scenic property lies three miles from Lake Livingston. The tree-filled park consists of 8.214 acres with 2.1 acres of adjacent property for expansion. Features include a saltwater pool, fire pit and onsite laundry and shower for guests. 

“NorthMarq continues to see a strong demand in the southeast for both Mobile Home & RV Communities due to their steady cash flow and ability to attract all age groups. Through one of our close lending relationships with a regional bank, we were able to secure a high leveraged, fixed rate product for our client,” said Alex Quenzler.
