NorthMarq finalizes $26M in acquisition financing

Phoenix–James DuMars, senior vice president/managing director of NorthMarq Capital’s Phoenix based regional office arranged acquisition financing of $26 million for Broadstone Twin Fields, a 314-unit multifamily property located at 2505 E. Williams Field Road in Gilbert, Ariz.

The transaction featured a low loan-to-value of 55 percent with a purchase price of $47.1 million. NorthMarq arranged financing for the borrower through its affiliate AmeriSphere Multifamily Finance, a Fannie Mae DUS lender.

“This was a highly sought after Class “A” asset,” says DuMars. “The repeat sponsor had a vast array of financing options but in the end elected the certainty of execution and competitive terms of a low-leverage Fannie Mae loan. It’s hard to compete with Fannie Mae on low leverage loans.”
