After it recently purchased an Orlando, Fla., property for $45.5 million, Michigan-based McKinley Properties has worked with Berkadia on the sale of five properties totaling 639 units across Central and North Florida. According to Volusia County records, GoldOller Real Estate Investments acquired the 119-unit Sun Pointe for $9 million and the 96-unit Sun Pointe Lake for $10 million, both located in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Per Alachua County recorded documents, the company also purchased the 322-unit Windmeadows in Gainesville, Fla., for $39.5 million. Benchmark Real Estate Group bought the 60-unit Sailpointe in Pasadena, Fla., for $11.6 million and the 42-unit Ela Mar Apartments in North Redington Beach, Fla., for $6.1 million, according to Pinellas County public recorder.

GSE financing

Berkadia worked with GoldOller Real Estate Investments to originate two 10-year Freddie Mac loans—$30.4 million for Windmeadows and $7 million for Sun Pointe. The new owner of Sun Pointe Lake assumed the existing $6.5 million Fannie Mae financing and worked with Berkadia for a supplementary $917,000 Fannie Mae loan, both set to mature in 2027. Benchmark Group took on the existing $9.8 million CMBS, Fannie Mae-issued financing for Sailpointe and took out a $4.1 million loan to finance the acquisition of El Mar Apartments.   

Senior Managing Director Cole Whitaker and Director Mary Beale of Berkadia’s Orlando office, Senior Director Jason Stanton of Berkadia’s Tampa office and Director Greg Rainey of Berkadia’s Jacksonville office, represented the seller. Whitaker worked on behalf of the seller in another Florida transaction last October, when the 260-unit Carriage Hills traded for $22 million. Senior Managing Director Robert Falese of Berkadia’s Philadelphia office arranged the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae loans.

“As Florida’s population continues to grow with about 1,000 people each day and is home to the nation’s third largest workforce, the sale of this portfolio indicates strong interest in multifamily investment in secondary markets due to a variety of positive factors drawing new residents to the state,” said Whitaker, in a prepared statement.
