George Smith Partners placed $16,300,000 in cash out refinancing for a recently stabilized for-rent SFR development. The financing includes seven years of interest only, which will maximize cash flow for an asset located in one of the fastest growing markets in the United States. The Project is a key asset for the Sponsorship group which operates over 2,500 units throughout the mountain states and securing a low rate, higher leverage, take-out loan was an essential part of the long-term strategy of the company. GSP utilized our relationships to close the transaction in three weeks from a signed application.
During the COVID-19 era we have seen significant changes to underwriting standards in comparison to 2019. These new requirements presented an underwriting challenge for the recently stabilized project as collections were increasing throughout 2020. GSP was able to demonstrate the Sponsors overall portfolio performance and three months stabilized occupancy to achieve maximum proceeds.

George Smith Partners secured senior permanent financing for a stabilized multifamily property in Los Angeles, CA. The non-recourse debt totaling $12,300,000 was utilized to refinance existing debt and return equity to the Ownership. The loan was structured with a 10-year term and interest only payments for the full duration. The loan was collateralized by a Class-A 34-Unit multifamily building, the Subject was 94% leased at closing and located in a highly desirable West Los Angeles neighborhood.
GSP selected a lender that was able to refinance the Sponsor’s existing debt, cover prepayment penalties and return a significant amount of equity to the Borrower, while simultaneously locking in interest only payments for the next ten years at a very desirable rate. GSP worked with the Lender to minimize debt service reserves while addressing Lender concerns for potential COVID related shortfalls; cash-out proceeds were secured on the loan despite several COVID related delinquencies.
