Near full occupancy

Located in Moriches, N.Y., Pine Hills South is a 700-unit gated community providing easy access to the Hamptons and Long Island attractions by means of Sunrise Highway and the Long Island Expressway. Both upstairs and downstairs units are offered, each with its own patio or terrace. Amenities include an on-site fitness center, multiple pools, a playground, pond and tennis court.

Pine Hills South is 98 percent occupied.

Built in 2007 and located in Medford, N.Y., just a mile north of the Long Island Expressway, Medford Pond features 200 units, ranging from one-bedroom to two-bed, two-bath apartment homes, many including an attached garage. Among the amenities are on-site community center featuring game and social areas, a billiard table, card tables and full kitchen. Medford Pond is also 98 percent occupied.

The sponsors are exceptionally experienced, with more than five decades in the business. Their track record with Freddie Mac, along with our relationship with the agency, made this a smooth process,” Appel said.

Added Schwartz, “Our relationship with Freddie Mac is essential as owners of well-maintained, vintage multifamily stock seek to either sell or refinance their assets.

This product type is becoming more coveted as the cycle progresses, and we anticipate seeing more agency activity.”
