Barry Swatsenbarg and Rich Deptula of Friedman represented the seller in this transaction. MHProNews contacted Friedman to determine the new and previous owners as well as the selling price and possible intent of the buyer, but the query went unanswered. However, a website search revealed First Holding Management Company LLC of Bloomfield, Michigan as the property owner, likely the seller in this transaction. First Holding also owns Key Heights MHC, a 286-home site community in Lowell, Michigan. ##
