Chicago, IL – March 30, 2016 – American Street Capital (“ASC”) on behalf of their strategic partner The LIHTC Group announced today that it has arranged $1.2 million in financing for a 36-unit multi-family property in Ft. Myers, FL. The transaction closed in March, 2016.

ASC worked exclusively on behalf of their client to secure a cash-out/refinance loan for a recently renovated and repositioned multi-family property. The client required high leverage, non-recourse, and an assumable structure. ASC successfully met the request with a very competitive 10-year term that included an initial two years of interest only payments. The loan was funded through the Freddie Mac Small Balance Program (“SBL”) that featured 80% LTV, non-recourse obligation, assumption capabilities, step-down pre-payment, and a 30-year amortization schedule.

The loan was originated by Alexander F. Rek, Director of Operations of ASC, for the client of Jonathan P. Richards, Senior Vice President of The LIHTC Group.
