HORSHAM, PA – Berkadia Commercial Mortgage LLC (Berkadia) recently originated $28.75 million in financing through Fannie Mae’s DUS platform to support the acquisition of a Class “A” apartment community in North Wales, Pa. Located approximately 30 miles north of downtown Philadelphia, the property includes more than 250 units and a top tier amenity package.

Senior Vice President Jim Badolato led the Berkadia team that secured the 10-year, adjustable-rate loan. The low-leverage loan, which closed at the end of September, featured a sub-2 percent going-in interest rate, payable on an interest-only basis.

“Recently, we've seen a spike in demand for floating rate executions given the volatility with fixed-rate indices,” said Badolato. “Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have ARM programs that offer compelling going-in rates. More importantly, these programs offer the prepayment and conversion flexibility that many of our clients need to execute their business plans.”
