JLL closes First Freddie Mac Affordable Housing Mezzanine Loan

JLL closes $9.1M financing package for acquisition of 120-unit Teal Pointe apartment community

October 31, 2018

VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct. 31, 2018 – JLL Multifamily Capital Markets experts have arranged a $9.128 million fixed-rate senior and mezzanine loan financing package through Freddie Mac’s Targeted Affordable Housing (TAH) Preservation program for the Teal Pointe Apartments in Vancouver, Washington. The financing includes a $1.082 million mezzanine loan, the very first transaction funded through Freddie Mac’s new Targeted Affordable Mezzanine Loan program.

Managing Director Tim Leonhard and Senior Vice President Mary Davis of JLL arranged the financing on behalf of the borrower.

“The property is in good physical condition with strong curb appeal in a popular submarket where high tech companies are driving strong population growth and AMI increases,” said Leonhard. “We were able to structure the financing to take advantage of Freddie Mac’s new Mezz program which gives borrowers the ability to acquire multifamily communities and to compete with conventional owners while keeping those properties affordable,” he added. “Without the additional leverage, is this case we exceeded 85 percent LTV, and very attractive economics of the Freddie Mac Mezz loan it is highly likely that this asset would have been sold to a conventional buyer.”

Built in 1985 and fully renovated in 2003, Teal Pointe consists of eight two-story apartment buildings, a single-story clubhouse and leasing office and two detached garage buildings. Community amenities include a fitness center, pool, spa and a dog park. Teal Pointe is consistently 98% or better occupied.
