BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CWCapital, a subsidiary of CW Financial Services and a full-service, national lender to the multifamily and healthcare real estate industries, today announced that it has provided $10 million for the refinance of Marbella Villa Apartments, a 106-unit multifamily property located in Chino, CA.
The 10-year fixed rate loan was financed through CWCapital’s Agency Lending Group and was originated by William Battaglia, Vice President in CWCapital’s Irvine, CA office. The loan was executed through the Fannie Mae DUS program and provided a lower rate and cash-out to the borrower. Although located in a pre-review market, the subject property and the sub-market in general have demonstrated consistent performance during the recent economic downturn.
Marbella Villa Apartments consists of six buildings on 4.72 acres and was constructed in 1988. The property has exhibited strong historical occupancy levels (over 95%) and offers a fitness center, swimming pool, spa, barbecue amenities, laundry facilities and security. Marbella Villa is located in a mixed-use area close to Highways 60 and 71 and is in the westerly portion of San Bernardino County, 8 miles from Orange County.
CWCapital worked closely with Fannie Mae to evaluate the characteristics of the property’s submarket and differentiate between the submarket and the regional market which has been significantly impacted by the economic downturn. This allowed CWCapital to provide more competitive LTV and DCR parameters than would normally have been attainable.
Bryan Frazier, Managing Director for CWCapital’s Western Region platform stated, “We are very pleased to complete this transaction and are even more pleased at the ability to offer the borrower a “cash-out” option in a pre-corrective market. This is highly unusual in the current economic environment and we were pleased to work closely with the borrower and Fannie Mae in executing such favorable loan terms. To complete a deal of this nature and to be able to execute it efficiently in this environment was very exciting, and something we hope to do more of.”
“This was an incredibly successful transaction for the borrower in the face of a very challenging market,” stated William Battaglia. “The borrower, Fannie Mae and CWCapital’s closing and underwriting teams all came together to mitigate potential issues and execute quickly – exceeding the borrower’s expectations.”
