NorthMarq negotiates $21 million refinance of workforce housing in Houston, Texas

HOUSTON,TEXAS (October 12, 2021) – Warren Hitchcock, senior vice president/senior director of NorthMarq’s Houston office, completed the $21 million refinance of the Vista apartments. The 300+-unit garden-style multifamily property (constructed in 1980 and renovated in 2019) is located in North Houston, Texas. The transaction was structured with a 10-year term, initial Interest Only period followed by a 30-year amortization schedule. NorthMarq arranged the cash out permanent-fixed loan at a 3.75 percent interest rate for a Houston-based borrower through its correspondent lending relationship with a national balance sheet lender.

“This lender was uniquely able to provide a full cash-out above and beyond the owner’s cost basis at a very high leverage for the sponsor thanks to NorthMarq’s correspondent relationship with the lender,” said Hitchcock.  Northmarq Services and Originates exclusively for this lender across the country.
