The Madison Group (TMG), a leading source of multi-family
financing nationwide, arranged the $1,207,000 loan for the purchase of an
apartment complex in Lebanon, Ill. The borrower’s
goals were to purchase the buildings with a non-recourse loan, low costs and a
low interest rate. TMG secured the financing with a 10-year fixed rate of 4.12%
and a 30-year amortization.
The apartment complex consists of three very well built and maintained
8-unit luxury townhome buildings, for a total of 24 rental units. The two-story
buildings, built in 2009, are considered garden/low-rise units built on a 1.59
The property is in the Greater St. Louis, Mo. area, which features
30 colleges and universities and has a population of approximately 2.9 million. The Scott Air Force base is also nearby.
Currently the apartments are 100% occupied and combined with
low expenses, make the net operating income very good. All of the rental units have stainless steel
appliances, granite countertops, upgraded flooring and in-unit washers and
Among the challenges to securing financing for the borrower,
the historical information was not consistent, as the seller had purchased the
units in 2015 as a foreclosure. At that
time, the seller had to evict several tenants and remodel most of the units
delaying lease up. The units also had a tenant mix of students and military making
the property more difficult to finance. The rents stabilized in July 2016.
“We were able to use the annualized trailing three years’ income
and expenses to get the loan proceeds that
made this loan work at the purchase price agreed upon by the buyer,” said
Angela Kesselman, TMG’s associate director of finance. “We found a Freddie Mac loan that gave us the
proceeds, rate and non-recourse loan the borrower desired.
received a great rate in a time of rising interest rates as the lender locked
the rate at an earlier period. The buyer
really was able to get everything he wanted.
I think it will perform well for him moving forward,” Kesselman said.
