Lument Arranges Agency Financing on Brooklyn Portfolio
Lument recently arranged three agency transactions totaling $18.5 million for multifamily communities in Brooklyn. Working with an experienced sponsor, Lument closed a $3-million Freddie Mac Small Balance Loan for 900 E. 18th St., a $6-million Fannie Mae conventional loan for 1436-1438 Ocean Ave. and a $9.5-million Fannie Mae conventional loan for 991-993 President St.
Kristian Molloy, VP in Lument’s New York office, led the transaction.
“We were able to take advantage of the ample benefits provided by an agency refinance to consolidate the sponsor’s existing debt with a permanent debt structure that was substantially more attractive,” said Molloy. “The new loans feature lower interest rates fixed near historic lows, competitive partial term interest-only periods, and cash-out proceeds for the borrower.”
All three loans feature 10-year terms and 30-year amortizations. Two of the loans feature interest-only periods.
Ephraim Chambre of Chambre & Company worked as the broker on the transactions.
