MMCC Arranges Acquisition Loan for Sussex County Shopping Center

Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation (MMCC) arranged a $13,300,000 acquisition loan for Vernon Valley Plaza, a grocery-anchored shopping center located at 530 County Road 515 in the Sussex County community of Vernon Township, NJ.  

The loan was secured by Joseph Belgiovine, First VP, Capital Markets based in MMCC’s New Jersey office.  

“Lenders recognize the intrinsic value of a grocery-anchored shopping center,” said Belgiovine. “Despite current market volatility, we secured various financing options for our client to consider, and he ultimately selected an aggressive option which yielded a greater than expected rate of return.”  

The 93,029-square-foot shopping center is anchored by major retailers including ACME Markets and Starbucks. The five-year loan features a fixed interest rate of 5.30%, 30-year amortization and 70% LTV. 

The property traded for $19 million in a deal arranged by Marcus & Millichap’s Alan Cafiero, David Cafiero and John Moroz. The buyer wasn’t disclosed.
