$19.3M First-Mortgage Bridge Loan
'08 & '18
Experienced multifamily owner-operators were seeking financing to acquire and reposition a multifamily community in Sherman, TX. The property was built in two phases, and the borrower was looking to renovate 112 units in the phase 1 portion of the property in order to improve their quality and capture higher rents. The phase 2 units were also achieving below-market rents, and the borrowers’ goal was to raise rents for those units to increase property cash flow. Borrowers also planned to bring in a new, experienced property manager.
Arbor was tasked with evaluating the borrowers’ business plan to ensure it would adequately increase property value and generate additional cash flow. The clients are repeat Arbor borrowers and large owner-operators who are local to the property, which assured Arbor that the repositioning could be successfully completed on time and on budget, resulting in increased rental income.
