New York, NY — November 30, 2018Hunt Real Estate Capital, a leader in financing commercial real estate throughout the United States, announced today it provided Agency loans of approximately $22.5 million to finance the acquisition of two multifamily properties located in Arizona.

Owners The Barone Group and their strategic partners backed both deals. Duke Stone at Churchill Capital Company represented the owners on both transactions.
The properties are located within seven miles of each other and include:

  • Canyon Woods Apartments – Phoenix, AZ: The property was built in 1984 and features 224 apartment units. The property is situated on approximately seven acres and consists of 12, two-story frame buildings. It is well maintained and features a quiet, family-friendly environment. Hunt Real Estate Capital provided a Freddie Mac loan facility featuring a 12-year term with 6-years of interest-only.

    Upon acquisition, the borrower plans to implement a value-add capital improvements plan totaling just over $2 million to complete a variety of interior and exterior upgrades to improve property operations and better compete within the local market. Property amenities include a swimming pool, spa, picnic/playground area and laundry facility.

  • Shadow Rose Apartments – Glendale, AZ. The property was built in 1985 and features 148 apartment units.

It is in great physical condition and provides workforce housing for the local community. Hunt Real Estate Capital provided a Fannie Mae loan facility featuring a 12-year term with 9-years of interest-only.

    In addition to the Green Improvements the borrower plans implement a value-add capital improvements plan totaling just over $1.5 million to modernize unit interiors and common area amenities. The community features a swimming pool, spa, playground, laundry facility, and clubhouse.
