Transaction Description:

George Smith Partners secured $9,882,000 in proceeds for the refinance of a newly stabilized 32-unit property in the Palms neighborhood of Los Angeles. The loan is fixed at a rate of 3.49% for 10 years, with 6 years of interest-only payments. The loan is non-recourse and has no payment reserves.

Several challenges were encountered when discussing the transaction with capital providers. The Property had just reached stabilization, so GSP had to find a lender that would include the income from newly signed leases without requiring several months of operating history. The Sponsor desired to lock their low rate for 10 years. This eliminated bank financing as an option because banks price up for longer term loans. Some CMBS lenders offered very competitive rates, but the Sponsor wanted an easy and low-cost closing process. As a result, Agency financing was the best option for a 10-year fixed rate loan with partial term on interest-only payments. While in application, extensive data from comparable properties was used to support proforma expenses and maintain underwritten cash flow. The loan closed in about 60 days.
