Berkadia Arranges $26M Refinancing for Two Multifamily Communities outside of Tampa

Berkadia announces it has arranged the refinancing of two properties in Florida: Gables at Honore in Sarasota, Fla., and Lodge at Woodlake in Lakeland, Fla. Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg, Managing Director Matt Robbins of Berkadia South Florida secured the financing for both properties on behalf of the owner Insula Companies, a boutique real estate investment company based in Sarasota, Florida.

A bank provided the $8.15 million, five-year, fixed-rate loan with three years of interest only for Gables at Honore, and Freddie Mac provided the $18 million, seven-year, fixed-rate loan, with five years of interest only for Lodge at Woodlake. 

“Insula’s continued capital improvement investment coupled with Central Florida’s strong rent growth, allowed them to refinance both properties with an attractive fixed rate debt,” said Robbins.
