On the heels of a strong 2023, the single-family rental (SFR) sector is positioned to expand even more in 2024. Build-to-rent (BTR) starts ticked up in the third quarter to reach 7.8%, another record high. With occupancy rates stable and lease renewal rent growth above historical averages, SFR has healthy fundamentals that will continue to support growth amid headwinds, Arbor’s Single-Family Rental Investment Trends Report Q1 2024, developed in partnership with Chandan Economics, shows.
Success Story: Large Multifamily Acquisition

$32.3M Freddie Mac Conventional Fixed-Rate Loan
An experienced value-add multifamily owner was looking for financing to acquire a large multifamily property in Virginia Beach, Va. The property is unique in that it’s located near a naval base, and as a result, it has a concentration of tenants in the military. The situation was more complex due to the deal’s borrower structure, which included multiple investors. As the borrower had a previous business relationship with Arbor and the sales broker, the borrower felt comfortable with Arbor’s ability to not only guide them to the right financing for their needs but also provide them with the certainty of execution to deliver.
As a result of Arbor’s strong internal collaboration between its underwriting and originations departments, as well as its strong partnership with Freddie Mac, the deal was able to be financed with competitive terms and on time.
Arbor was able to execute a 10-year, $32.3 million fixed-rate loan under the Freddie Mac Conventional loan program. Despite the complexity of the deal, Arbor was able to secure the best financing possible for the borrower’s business goals while providing the borrower with peace of mind that the transaction would successfully close.
