JACKSONVILLE, FL-Think you have problems getting through to the right person at your bank? Try being an apartment investor offering cash for a distressed asset with the ability to close quickly.

That’s the situation Dallas-based Gulfstream Capital Partners faced in its recent $23-million acquisition of the 440-unit Falcon Lake Apartments at 11701 Palm Lake Road in Jacksonville. The closing price, around $52,000 per unit, is roughly half of the $45 million that Falcon Lake’s developer, Boca Raton-based Falcone Group, put in when the 435,700-square-foot complex opened in October 2008.

JPMorgan and Key Bank held a $35-million mortgage on the property, which Gulfstream’s principals had pursued previously in 2009 and was secured by another group.
