BETHESDA, Md., April 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Walker & Dunlop, Inc. announced today that it brokered the sale and arranged acquisition financing for NOAH Apartments, a 224-unit multifamily property in San Antonio, Texas.
Walker & Dunlop’s Ryan Epstein, Forrest Bass, and Matt Pohl represented the buyer and the seller in the disposition. Financing experts Tom Toland and Matt Newton arranged attractive acquisition bridge financing on behalf of the buyer, Pegasus Real Estate, and their equity partners, Thackeray Partners. The financing features a five-year term, full-term interest only payments, an attractive low rate, and a fully funded value-add plan for the borrower to make property improvements.
“NOAH is a well-located, institutional quality asset in arguably the best suburban neighborhood in San Antonio, Alamo Heights,” Jonas Levy, Managing Partner of Pegasus, stated. “The attractive going-in yield at the property coupled with favorable financing and rent growth trends made the acquisition particularly desirable for Pegasus and our investors. The property fits well with our strategy of identifying unique, high-quality assets in desirable locations.”
Pegasus’ Managing Partner, Justin Laub, added, “Prior ownership proved out the demand for high quality updated interior renovations and we think the property is well-positioned for continued further growth. The acquisition marks Pegasus’ third property in San Antonio and its tenth acquisition in Texas. We are thrilled to add another high-quality property to our portfolio and further expand our presence in the San Antonio market. Once again, Walker & Dunlop did an exceptional job making the acquisition and debt financing a smooth process.”
“This transaction demonstrates the increasing demand for multifamily assets in the rapidly growing San Antonio market. The area’s fundamentals are incredibly strong, and Pegasus will continue to add value to the property via interior and exterior renovations,” said Walker & Dunlop’s Tom Toland, Senior Director of Multifamily Finance. “Walker & Dunlop’s ability to work closely with both the buyer and seller allowed for a streamlined transaction.”
