Electra Capital, a boutique lender specializing in flexible, short-term multifamily financing solutions, has originated more than $115 million in the last 90 days on several value-add and ground-up multifamily properties located in major U.S. Sunbelt metros, including Dallas-Fort Worth.
“While the capital markets are trying to make sense of the Fed and the potential of value corrections in the multifamily marketplace, Electra Capital is prudently evaluating and closing high-quality transactions requiring senior debt and/or subordinate debt (mezzanine and preferred equity) for savvy sponsors that are active in the Sunbelt territories,” said Electra Capital CEO Sam Greenblatt. “Despite the volatility in the capital markets, multifamily fundamentals remain strong in several Sunbelt cities. We’re particularly optimistic about the in-migration and job growth trends in Orlando, Austin, San Antonio, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, which will support sustainable demand and rent growth for the foreseeable future.”
Electra Capital’s recent transactions in Texas include:
A $21.45 million preferred equity investment on a four-property, 952-unit apartment portfolio located in Dallas. The sponsor – a three-time repeat client – plans to make significant improvements to the common areas, as well as upgrading the individual units, and adding in-unit washers and driers.
An $18.6 million mezzanine loan for the Ashland Green Portfolio, a three-property, 936-unit portfolio in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. The sponsor’s business plan includes making significant improvements to the common areas, as well as upgrading the individual units, including adding in-unit washers and driers.
