Credit Facility Allows Borrowers to Manage Debt Across Entire Multifamily Portfolio
PGIM Real Estate recently arranged a $106.763 million Fannie Mae credit facility on behalf of a nationwide owner and operator of affordable housing communities for a nine-property multifamily/affordable housing portfolio located across Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. The properties encompassing more than 1,200 affordable units are located in five different urban centers, all with strong demand for affordable housing.
The 30-year fixed-rate loan will be used to repay existing debt and provide cash-out that will be used to fund additional property acquisitions. The sponsor hopes to acquire enough properties to add $100 million or more of new debt to the facility in the next three to five years.
“For relatively little cost, the sponsor will have funds to improve the properties, provide better conditions for their residents and expand their portfolio,” said Kenji Tamaoki, executive director of agency originations at PGIM Real Estate who originated the loan on the firm’s behalf.
Fannie Mae’s credit facility is geared toward giving borrowers the flexibility to manage debt across an entire multifamily portfolio to help achieve long-term goals, allowing a combination of variable- and fixed-rate debt with laddered maturities and flexible post-closing features.
