Flagship MHC Portfolio

The situation

Preferred correspondent Security Mortgage Group client, Flagship Communities REIT approached our team of MHC specialists for help. Flagship is one of the largest owner/operators of manufactured housing communities in the country with nearly 70 communities covering nearly 12,000 manufactured housing lots. The firm has 60+ years of experience developing and managing MHC throughout Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Arkansas, and Missouri. Flagship was seeking to establish a long-term financing vehicle for the purpose of positioning the firm for future growth, managing debt across Flagship’s entire MHC portfolio, and servicing its long-time financing needs. 

The solution


Andrew Tapley, Senior Managing Director;  Alex Huffman, Managing Director; and Matt Restivo, Senior Director led our team to quote, negotiate, and close a Fannie Mae Credit Facility with Flagship Communities. Partnering with our team, Flagship was able to establish a long-term credit facility that permits a combination of variable- and fixed-rate debt with laddered maturities and flexible post-closing features. These features allow Flagship to manage complex and changing business strategies and achieve its long-term MH goals.

Recently recognized by MHI as 2023 Community Operator of the Year, Flagship Communities REIT is a best in class owner and operator of manufactured housing communities, providing affordable housing across the Midwest.  We are proud to assist them in structuring the Fannie Mae Credit Facility to meet their long-term strategic growth goals."
