Hunt Real Estate Capital Provides $27 Million Fannie Mae Loan to Refinance a Newly-Built Multifamily Community in Hialeah, FL

NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Hunt Real Estate Capital, a division of ORIX Real Estate Capital, announced that it has provided a $27 million Fannie Mae DUS® Conventional Multifamily loan to refinance construction debt for Las Vistas at Amelia, a 174-unit apartment community in Miami-Dade county.

Built in 2020, Las Vistas at Amelia is a workforce housing community designed to attract young professionals. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments feature a modern design with ceramic tile flooring throughout, granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and state-of-the-art hurricane impact windows.

Located in Hialeah, Florida, the property quickly leased up post-construction, demonstrating its strong appeal to the community.

“Las Vistas at Amelia is a high-quality workforce housing community that plays an important role in the city of Hialeah by providing safe, first-rate housing for its residents,” said Marc Suarez, director with Hunt.

The $27 million loan features a low, fixed interest rate, 15-year term, and 10 years of interest only, followed by a 30-year amortization schedule. In addition to paying off construction debt, the loan provides substantial proceeds to the sponsors.

“Refinancing construction debt with agency financing within a year of the new build is a noteworthy feat,” Suarez concluded. “Fannie Mae multifamily financing can be impressively efficient and an optimal permanent debt solution.”
