Freddie Mac Small Balance Loan Product Fills Unique Financing Needs of Four-Building, Townhome Complex
Charleston, SC – December 9, 2020 – CPC Mortgage Company, LLC, a subsidiary of the Community Preservation Corporation (CPC), announced the closing of a $2.3 million Freddie Mac Optigo Small Balance Loan (SBL) to acquire a 32-unit, townhome complex in Charleston, South Carolina. The four-building property is located at 1 Rice Drive.
“Here in Charleston and in cities large and small across South Carolina, small multifamily rental properties are the backbone of our communities,” said John Cannon, President of CPC Mortgage Company. “During these extraordinary times, small multifamily owners are still facing the same, if not more challenging issues of finding stable, reliable financing options. From finding the best product to providing first-class technical assistance, we’re focused on creating a partnership and ensuring that our borrowers know they’re more than just a loan number.”
“Small, multifamily building owners face a unique set of challenges when finding suitable financing options,” said Matthew Meskill, Vice President, Mortgage Originator, of CPC Mortgage Company who originated the loan. “Using the Freddie Mac Small Balance Loan, we are able to fulfill the capital needs of our borrowers, and provide them with the terms and flexibility that match their properties’ needs.”
Located in the West Ashley neighborhood of Charleston, the property was originally built in 1975 and features 32 two-bedroom units across its four buildings. Each unit includes a patio, washer/dryer hookups, and private exterior entry door, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, built-in microwave, garbage disposal, and carpeting. Capital improvements expected as a result of the loan include new countertops, sinks and fixtures, the addition of a dog park, updated painting and landscaping, and upgrades to the 56-spot parking lot.
