Hunt Real Estate Capital financed three multifamily assets – two properties in Chicago and one scattered-site portfolio in Lakewood, Ohio. All three deals were brought to the firm by American Street Capital, a correspondent broker based in Chicago. The total Hunt Real Estate Capital financing is $4.37 million. The properties include 7200 S. Bennett Avenue, 7421 S. Yates Boulevard, 1681-1685 Lincoln Avenue and 13468 Clifton Boulevard.
7200 S. Bennett Avenue
Hunt Real Estate Capital provided a $1.6 million non-recourse mortgage to refinance 7200 S. Bennett Avenue, a four-story walk-up apartment building with a total of 28 residential units that was built in 1922. Located in the Southside Neighborhood of Chicago, the property is 92.9% occupied. The borrower is a seasoned real estate professional with nearly a decade of experience investing in commercial real estate. The borrower purchased the property as a distressed asset from a private equity group in March 2016 and has since invested approximately $215,000 toward unit renovations, mechanical systems upgrades, and exterior maintenance. The transaction is a 7/13 Hybrid ARM with a loan term of 20 years. Repayment will be based on interest-only for 24 months followed by a 30-year amortization schedule thereafter.

Hunt Real Estate Capital provided a $1.11 million loan facility to refinance another property for the same sponsor. Also located in Chicago, 7421 S. Yates Boulevard was acquired as a distressed asset in the same portfolio as 7200 S. Bennett Avenue. The property is a 1964-built three-story walk-up apartment building with 24 residential units. Since the acquisition, the borrower has invested approximately $175,000 in unit renovations, mechanical systems upgrades, and exterior maintenance. The transaction is a 7/13 Hybrid ARM with a loan term of 20 years. Repayment will be based on interest-only for 24 months followed by a 30-year amortization schedule thereafter. 7421 S.
