Walker & Dunlop closes $152M loan portfolio within 48 days

Bethesda, Md.—Walker & Dunlop Inc. announced the closing of a $152.94 million, eight property, loan portfolio with a long-time repeat borrower based in Arizona. The properties are located in Texas, Oklahoma and Arizona. Vice President Alex Inman led the Walker & Dunlop team and closed the transactions within 48 days of the borrower signing the applications.

The borrower financed the portfolio via Freddie Mac’s Capital Markets Execution (CME) program and utilized the seven-year, floating-rate Capped ARM product. Seven of the eight deals in the portfolio are structured with one year of interest only and a 30-ear amortization thereafter. The eighth deal is structured with a 30-year amortization. The average loan-to-value and debt-service-coverage ratio of the portfolio is 77 percent and 1.28, respectively. Additionally, the borrower recouped a significant amount of equity at closing and the new loans provide a more favorable prepayment structure. The initial blended start rate of the pool is 2.39 percent.
