SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - Taylor Capital Group, LLC reports a 4.57 percent third quarter return for the Mountain West Debt Fund, LP. The fund's present returns, which represent an 18.28 percent annualized return, reflect increased demand for new construction in the Western United States.
The Mountain West Debt Fund™ consists of pooled, private capital invested in real estate-secured loans to developers. The fund's clientele consists of proven developers seeking to acquire, build or maintain projects in the West. While U.S. Census Bureau data released last week places year-over-year housing start growth in the West at 56.8 percent, many of the developers supported by the fund are building two times the volume they did in 2011.
"As the available inventory of foreclosures shrinks, homebuilders in the mountain west are seeing increasing demand for new construction, particularly in Utah and Nevada," notes Mark Taylor, principal and managing director of Taylor Capital Group. "Our local real estate acumen and ability to move beyond cookie-cutter approaches to underwriting provides developers with a decisive advantage in meeting this uptick in demand."
