Deutsche Bank refis FHA, mez debt with $28.5M Freddie Mac loan

Baton Rouge, La.—Deutsche Bank Berkshire Mortgage (DBBM) recently provided a $28.5 million Freddie Mac Capital Markets Execution (CME) loan for the refinance of Evergreen at Coursey Place Apartments, a 352-unit multifamily community in Baton Rouge, La. The property was constructed in 2003 and acquired by the borrower in 2008.

DBBM rate locked the transaction with an all-in 10-year note of 5.07 percent, and provided a two-year interest only period followed by 30-year amortization. Previously the property debt consisted of both a Federal Housing Authority (FHA) 221(d)(4) loan and a mezzanine loan.

“DBBM was pleased to provide the borrower a cost-efficient solution,” says Steve Wendel, Co-Head of DBBM. “The market appetite for Freddie Mac loans remains strong, and we are dedicated to providing the experience and leadership needed to enhance loan transactions for our borrowers.”
