NorthMarq Capital arranges financing for Aeon’s acquisition of The Provinces

MINNEAPOLIS (June 22, 2018) – NorthMarq Capital’s Mike Padilla, in collaboration with the company’s Freddie Mac team, arranged the financing of The Provinces, a 118-unit apartment property in Little Canada that will preserve the affordability of the apartment homes. Nonprofit investor Aeon and the NOAH Impact Fund of Greater Minnesota Housing Fund (GMHF) acquired the property from Dominium. The acquisition also received grant funding from the Ramsey County Housing and Redevelopment Authority.

NOAH—naturally occurring affordable housing—has been disappearing as investors acquire older properties and remodel or demolish them, raising rents and forcing existing tenants to leave. Aeon, a nonprofit developer, owner and manager of affordable homes has purchased 1,447 NOAH apartment homes in recent years to preserve their affordability.

“NorthMarq Capital appreciates the opportunity to work with Aeon and Freddie Mac, in preserving affordable housing in our market,” said Padilla, vice president in NorthMarq’s Minneapolis production office.

“We are grateful for the strong relationships we have with our local multifamily housing partners,” said Blake Hopkins, vice president of Housing Development at Aeon.

The purchase is Aeon’s second partnership with GMHF with funding provided by its recently formed NOAH Impact Fund. This is a $25 million equity fund established to preserve NOAH properties in Minnesota.

The Twin Cities is in the middle of an apartment construction boom, but just 10 percent of new units will be available for low-income renters, according to the 2017 report “State of the State’s Housing Report, Twin Cities Region,” released by the Minnesota Housing Partnership (MHP).

The property preserves affordability of 118 apartment homes in Little Canada.

Borrowers Push for More Interest-Only Loans

A resurgence of interest-only loans is a bit reminiscent of the frothy lending market that existed pre-recession. But while the rise in interest-only loans is another sign that lenders are relaxing their tight grip, underwriting on commercial real estate loans remains markedly more prudent than compared to 2006 and early 2007.

Today’s interest-only (IO) loans are still a far cry from the deals available at the previous peak of the market, when borrowers could secure 10-year IO on loans with an 80 percent loan-to-value (LTV) ratio.

“It is not as aggressive as it was, but there is some interest-only financing that is readily available,” says Dan Trebil, senior vice president and managing director with debt and equity provider NorthMarq Capital in Minneapolis. Borrowers are typically only finding IO between one to five years at the most on full-leverage loans that are at 75 percent LTV rather than the 80 percent leverage that was attainable in the past cycle, Trebil notes.
