George Smith Partners successfully placed $27,350,000 ($337,655/unit) in a cash-out, uncrossed (two loans) refinance of two multifamily properties totaling 81 units in Los Angeles communities, Los Feliz and Burbank, during the COVID-19 pandemic. While in application with accretive terms in February 2020 prior to California’s “stay-at-home” order, the Lender subsequently paused all new loan originations, including its in-process pipeline, mid-way through this transaction. Despite the economic uncertainty during the transaction, as well as the Lender halting all in-process and new loan originations, GSP leveraged the Firm’s collective production and relationship with the Lender to close the loans during the COVID-19 pandemic with loan terms as originally structured. GSP worked diligently to ensure the final economic loan terms matched the agreed-upon LOI terms, including an additional advance to be funded after the eviction moratorium is lifted. Both properties had undergone extensive renovations and upgrades since acquisition and have maintained 95% occupancy throughout 2020 despite COVID-19 regulations in California allowing tenants to defer rent payments.
