The LA Deal Sheet

The Los Angeles office of NorthMarq Capital has arranged $251.54M in financing for a multifamily portfolio across Orange and Los Angeles counties.

The financing, done on behalf of owner Advanced Real Estate Services, was for the refinance of seven apartment communities and acquisition of the Stadium House apartment community. The eight apartment communities totaled 1,261 units, NorthMarq officials said in a news release.

The transaction was structured with 10-year, interest-only loans with an average interest rate of 4.2%. NorthMarq arranged financing for Advanced Real Estate Services through its relationship with Fannie Mae.

“The loans were all separate with no cross-collateralization,” said NorthMarq’s Executive Vice President and Managing Director Michael T. Elmore, who arranged the financing. “The seven refinance assets provided significant cash-out for future acquisitions by the sponsor. Stadium House was a purchase money loan for 60% of the acquisition cost.”

Elmore said Advanced and NorthMarq have completed nearly $2B in loans over the past 20 years.

  • The Parsons, a 60-unit property at 2000 Parsons St. in Costa Mesa.
