It was a big week for two companies last week – the acquisition of the shopping center adjacent to Walmart on Clinton Highway was a great sale and a great purchase for the companies involved. DFG-Knoxville LLC sold this center to Northwest Crossing LLC for $12.25 million. Northwest Crossing also had the largest loan of the week for this purchase, borrowing $9.8 million from Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union.
The total for the 227 property transfers this week was $69.48 million.
With the lower interest rates that are in place right now, I know that more and more loans will be recorded in the next few weeks. Last week we recorded 412 loans totaling $99.2 million. The next highest loan after the Northwest Crossing transaction was a $2 million refinance by Knox Trailers Inc. and R&S Properties Partnership for two properties located at 2600 and 2607 Middlebrook Pike. This was financed through Regions Bank.
We have had many questions concerning the operation of our office. I fully understand the responsibilities that this office carries concerning the economy and am dedicated to keeping it in operation while ensuring the safety of the staff.
