Bushe, regional loan officer for the LaJolla, CA-based bank, tells that Quail Ridge AssociatesLtd. from Maitland, FL had acquired the complex with a life companyloan that had an 8% fixed-rate interest, but the underlying motivefor the sale was the expiration of tax credits. "The real incentivein the deal was to get those tax credits. When they burned off,they wanted to sell," he says, "and the loan was really encumberingthe cash flow."
