Staley Point Capital and Bain Capital Real Estate Purchased Orange County Industrial Property for $21 Million

Staley Point Capital | May 05, 2021

Staley Point Capital ("Staley Point"), a value-add investor focusing on commercial assets in Southern California, and Bain Capital Real Estate, Bain Capital's real estate investing division, announced today the off-market purchase of a 100,000 square-foot industrial property in Brea, California, for approximately $21 million.

"Given the supply barriers to entry and the solid demographics, we hope that this is only the first of many transactions in Orange County," said Eric Staley, Managing Director of Staley Point. "By providing closing assurance on a short timeline, we were able to differentiate ourselves as a buyer."

The property is located at 331 Cliffwood in North Orange County, with easy access to the rest of the county via the 57 freeway. The asset has a clear height of 22 feet, four dock-high positions, and is completely leased for five years.

This is the fourth sale done by Staley Point and Bain Capital Real Estate. It comes on the back of the newly announced acquisition of a 58,000 square-foot industrial property in Santa Fe Springs, as well as the purchasing of Freeway Point, an 83,000 square-foot industrial property, and a land site in the San Fernando Valley.

"This investment represents both our partnership's continued success and our emphasis on investing locally in industrial properties with solid underlying growth fundamentals," said Andrew Terris, Managing Director at Bain Capital Real Estate. "We established North County as an appealing and high-performing submarket, and we look forward to capitalizing on additional prospects in the area that fit with our thematic and value-added investment strategy."

Staley Point Capital and Bain Capital Real Estate have formed a joint venture to reposition and redevelop existing infill industrial sites near dense urban centers, mainly in Southern California.

Staley Point Capital's legal counsel on the deal was Greenberg Traurig, LLP. Pacific Partners advised both the buyer and the seller, while JLL Capital Markets will handle the loan financing.

FirstClose Incorporates Vendor Gateway Within Its Digital Home Equity Solution

FirstClose | February 02, 2023

To help home equity lenders select and integrate their preferred settlement service vendors into FirstCloseTM Equity more efficiently, the company has launched its next-generation Vendor Gateway. FirstClose Equity is a one-of-a-kind home equity origination solution that streamlines operational touchpoints while improving borrowers' overall customer experience. The platform's end-to-end solution comprises a borrower-facing point-of-sale solution that provides consumers with fast online feedback on their home valuation, accessible home equity, loan possibilities, and credit decisions in minutes. Also, lenders may be able to finish the process from application to closing in 7–10 days, while the average in the industry is 45–60 days. This is possible because of automated workflows that include the ordering of settlement services. Lenders and their vendor partners can both significantly benefit from using FirstClose Gateway. One of the many benefits is that it will reduce vendors' time to get their products on the market. It will also make things better for borrowers by giving them consistent data and making sure their orders are filled. Also, it will make contracting and managing vendors easier by letting FirstClose equity lenders connect with their preferred providers under a single agreement, with a single bill and a single point of contact. Ramiro Castro, Chief Product Officer for FirstClose, stated, "We designed the Gateway to give lenders greater control over the home equity process: everything from the customer experience they deliver to their operational and risk management choices." "While our latest release includes a core set of vendors that are accelerating the origination process, our platform is vendor agnostic," Ramiro Castro concluded.

The company aims to help mortgage lenders improve profits while decreasing expenses.

Lower Introduces Mortgage as a Service Platform, Lists Opendoor as First Customer

Lower and Opendoor | January 19, 2023

The financial services company Lower recently announced the launch of its brand new mortgage-as-a-service (MaaS) platform, which makes it simple for consumer brands to provide mortgage solutions to clients. After conducting a successful test of the service, Opendoor, the industry-leading e-commerce platform for residential real estate transactions, has decided to outsource all its mortgage fulfillment to Lower. Setting up an in-house mortgage lending operation has been a time-consuming task for many companies in the past. Lower's MaaS platform allows the consumer finance, banking, and real estate industries to offer a digital-first home financing experience quickly and easily, with white-labeling possibilities. It is possible to integrate it into the customer journey of the partner by using APIs and other no-code methods. Opendoor's early adoption of Lower demonstrates that the service's distinctive combination of human skill and technology has proven successful for the Lower team. Chelsea Wagner, newly appointed as SVP of Partnerships to oversee the new platform, remarks, "Nearly every proptech and fintech company we talk to has some version of home lending on their roadmap. It's a natural value add, but until now there wasn't a solution. Our infrastructure and expertise make us uniquely positioned to accelerate a new mortgage offering.” She further added, "We believe the demand will be high for this product as a new, easily implemented product offering for companies." (Source – Cision PR Newswire) In context to the new platform, Co-Founder and CEO Dan Snyder continued, "We've taken our years of mortgage experience and processes, and allowed any business to offer mortgage to its customers. This is a big step for brands that have captive audiences but not the means or experience to offer such products. It allows companies like Opendoor to stay focused on what they do best, while adding a new product that lives up to their brand promise and expand their reach." (Source – Cision PR Newswire) The MaaS solution enables businesses to immediately offer home finance choices to their customers while increasing their lending presence to more than 93% of the US population.
