On June 27, 2024, real estate investment firm Dornin Investment Group (“DIG”) and Sabal Investment Holdings acquired an approximate $40M non-performing loan (“NPL”) off-market from a publicly traded nationwide bank. The loan is secured by a roughly 700+ bed student housing project in the state of Washington.

DIG has closed nearly $500M in loan purchases across the United States since 2020. DIG most recently closed on a $60M NPL secured by an industrial property in Southern California and sees continued momentum building going into the second half of 2024.

Chris Dornin, President and CEO of Dornin Investment Group remarks, “DIG’s unique understanding of the property, market, loan profile, and transactional expertise helped close this note on a tight schedule before the banks quarter end. Quality assets and sufficient return thresholds enable DIG to close quickly and purchase up to Par of UPB.”

The acquisition represents DIG and Sabal’s 4th note purchase together secured by loans valued at more than $261M and their second loan secured by a student housing project in the state of Washington.

DIG targets first trust deed non-performing loans (NPLs) secured by well-collateralized real estate assets nationwide. Notes secured by collateral at values of 80% LTV or less can be purchased at or near Par UPB. Typical loan sizes range from $5M to $200M, secured by all major property types.

Mark Nicoletti, John Jefferson, and Mallory Gyulay provided legal expertise to DIG. Valerie Rapp of Fidelity National Title lead title and escrow services.
