Arbor Funds $2.7M Freddie Mac SBL Deal in Chicago, IL

UNIONDALE, NY (August 8, 2018) – Arbor Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:ABR), a real estate investment trust and national direct lender specializing in loan origination and servicing for multifamily, seniors housing, healthcare, and other diverse commercial real estate assets, recently funded a Freddie Mac Small Balance Loan in Chicago, IL.

The property, a 50-unit multifamily building located at 4831-39 N. Kimball Ave., received $2.7M in refinance funding through the deal. The loan provides a 10-year fixed term, a 60% Loan-to-Value Ratio, and a 1.50 Debt-Service Coverage Ratio.

Sam Gold of Arbor’s Chicago office originated the loan. “It’s always exciting to work with a first-time agency borrower, in part for the opportunity to build a long-term relationship,” said Gold. “This loan was a cash-out refinance deal customized to address the specific needs of the borrower. It was a door-to-door transaction and it moved quickly – only 45 days.”

Built in 1921, the property is located in Chicago’s Northwest Side. It is in close vicinity to the Ravenswood Manor Historic District and River Park, and just 4 miles away from Wrigley Field.
