Principle Valuation provides valuations that allow healthcare and seniors housing entities to obtain financing for acquisition, new construction, expansion and renovation, and refinancing. Valuations provide support for conventional, FNMA/FMAC, and HUD 232/242 financing. Principle Valuation provided expertise to the Department of Housing and Urban Development during the development of the Lean process for insuring FHA financing.
