NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a leading national commercial real estate finance company, has provided a $71,340,000 Freddie Mac Optigo? loan to refinance a 197-unit multifamily property in Santa Rosa, California. The transaction was originated by Greystone?s Matt Miller on behalf of Gallaher Companies.

The $71.3 million Freddie Mac fixed rate, non-recourse loan carries a seven-year term with a 30-year amortization and four years of interest-only payments. The financing enables the borrower to exit the construction loan on the property, which it built in 2021, in an area hard hit by recent wildfires and a dearth of rental housing.

Sendero Townhomes offers three-bedroom townhomes and studio apartments with a community pool and sundeck, fitness center, clubhouse with billiards room, and on-site parking. The pet-friendly property is located off Highway 12 and near Highway 101, offering easy access to outdoor recreation centers, bike trails and downtown Santa Rosa.

?We are thrilled that we were able to help our client secure financing to provide much-needed multifamily housing in the Santa Rosa area, which is facing a shortage of housing following wildfires over the last few years,? said Mr. Miller. ?At Greystone, we know that there is no greater show of appreciation than when a client entrusts us with multiple properties in their portfolio. We are grateful we could have some part in helping our long-term client realize their vision for this property.?

?My past experience working with Greystone has always been second-to-none ? their professionalism, lending platform, and client service are what keep me coming back,? said Mr. William P. Gallaher, founder of Gallaher Companies. ?Greystone understood exactly what was needed for this property and their ability to bring the transaction to a quick close was, once again, exceptional.?

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
