NorthMarq arranges $11.5M for Iowa asset

Council Bluffs, Iowa—NorthMarq Capital’s Omaha office has arranged first mortgage financing of $11.5 million for Valley View Apartments, a 258-unit market-rate asset located in Council Bluffs. Financing was based on a 20-year term and a 20-year amortization schedule. NorthMarq arranged financing for the borrower through its relationship with a correspondent life company lender. Jason Kinnison, senior vice president at the firm’s Omaha office, arranged the transaction.

“The borrower was able to lock in this excellent 20-year fully amortizing loan five months in advance of their existing loan opening to prepayment without penalty,” Kinnison says.

Johnson Capital locks $17.2M loan with no balloon from life insurance company

Olathe, Kan.—Johnson Capital announced that Thomas Cohen, principal, and John Schorgl, vice president, of the firm’s Kansas City office, have arranged a $17.2 million loan for a 227-unit multifamily property in Olathe, KanSomerset Oaks.

The property is the Somerset Oaks Apartments, located at 813 S. Mur-Len Road, which was developed by the borrowers in 1999. The community is in excellent condition and unit amenities include: 9-foot ceilings with crown molding, built-in desk and bookshelves, direct access garages, dishwashers, fireplaces, private balconies/patios and spacious walk-in closets. Community amenities include 24-hour fitness center, business center with wireless Internet, clubhouse and a swimming pool with waterfall and wading pool.

The loan was placed with a life insurance company on a 25-year fully amortizing basis. Proceeds of the loan were used to refinance existing debt.

Commenting on this transaction, Cohen says, “Rates started to rise as we got in position to rate lock. Fortunately, the life insurance company maintained both their spread and proceeds. The borrower received an excellent rate with no balloon. We certainly can’t duplicate that rate in today’s market.”
