Charleston, S.C. (September 24, 2021) – Electra Capital, a boutique lender specializing in flexible, short-term multifamily financing solutions, has closed on a $16.9 million bridge loan for the acquisition of Avalon at North Charleston III (formerly Willow Ridge), a 145-unit townhome community in Charleston, South Carolina. Carolina Multifamily Investments, a privately held real estate investment firm based in Chalfont, Pa. acquired the garden-style apartment communities for $22.4 million.

Mike Butler of Carolina MF Investments added, “We are thrilled to have been able to find this deal and transact off market. As we always say, good deals are made not found and this provides a great opportunity for us to take ‘blight and make light’ and create value for our colleagues, partners and most importantly our residents.”
