Mortgage Equicap obtains high cash-out, 75% LTV loan from balance sheet lender

New York–Daniel Hilpert, managing director of Mortgage Equicap, says the company has arranged an $8,500,000, seven-year fixed-rate mortgage for two apartment buildings in Queens, N.Y.

The challenge was that the owner wanted a 75 percent LTV mortgage giving him at least $5 million of cash-out proceeds after paying off a $3.5 million existing mortgage. The owner also wanted to lock a seven-year fixed-rate below 5.00 percent (at the time of the closing, the seven-year treasury yield had climbed to 2.85 percent).

Mortgage Equicap arranged a 4.875 percent fixed-rate, non-recourse mortgage with a 30-year amortization schedule. “We closed the loan with a regional balance sheet lender within 45 days. “The lender was very knowledgeable of the local market and underwrote the asset thoroughly to get to a 75 percent LTV despite the high cash-out and below-market interest rate”, says Hilpert.

Lubbock, Texas—Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services has brokered the sale of a 229-unit student housing property across the street from Texas Tech University. The seven-story property, ULofts Lubbock, sits on 2.8 acres and has 334 bedrooms.
