M&T Realty Capital Corporation Provides $74.1 Million in Financing for Manufactured Housing Community Portfolio
M&T Realty Capital Corporation announced today that it has closed $74,100,000 in Fannie Mae loans for the refinance of eleven manufactured housing communities located in upstate New York, retiring the credit facility led by M&T Bank that financed the initial acquisition of the properties.
The 2,391-unit portfolio is owned and operated by Horizon Land Company and Federal Capital Partners® via a joint venture arrangement. All of the properties in the portfolio are secured with 10-year, 3.38% floating-rate loans. The loans are structured with five years of interest-only payments, followed by 30-year amortizations.
The transaction was led by Managing Director Carole Stafford of M&T Realty Capital Corporation’s Baltimore office, in collaboration with Senior Commercial Real Estate Relationship Manager Jeffrey Prather of M&T Bank’s Washington, DC office.
“We are very pleased to have been able to provide financing for this portfolio,” Carole Stafford, Vice President and Managing Director, M&T Realty Capital Corporation stated. “Horizon and Federal Capital Partners are leaders in owning and operating MHC housing in the eastern US, which offers a more affordable solution for many renters in the markets they serve.”
“For more than 10 years, Horizon has been committed to creating and maintaining affordable, clean, and desirable manufactured housing neighborhoods located in generally high cost of living locations,” said Drew Odabashian, CIO of Horizon Land Co. “The financing provided by M&T ensures that we will be able to provide economical housing options for thousands of people in upstate New York for many years to come. Our portfolio of nearly 10,000 pads across 52 different properties located in many of the eastern U.S. markets reflects our strong investment in the business.”
