Opportunities Extend Further into Borough as Strong Demand for Brooklyn Multifamily Continues to Attract investors and Lenders

March 12, 2014 – New York – Hybrid Capital, a New York-based full-service commercial mortgage and advisory firm, arranged $8.5 million in permanent financing for two attached four-story residential buildings in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. The announcement was made by Bobby Bakhchi, CEO of Hybrid Capital.

Constructed in 1917, the 100% occupied buildings contain 80 residential units. According to Mr. Bakhchi, “The property was financed approximately two years ago, however the owner wanted to capitalize on the opportunity to refinance at the current lower interest rates. We positioned the property as having long-term upside potential through capital improvements to the stabilized units as they become vacant, to bring the rents up to market rates. Opportunities are extending further out into Brooklyn as strong demand for multifamily continues to attract interest from investors and capital sources.” The 12-year loan was arranged at 3.6% on behalf of a private owner.

Over the past three years, Hybrid Capital has arranged financing for transactions valued in excess of $1.5 billion.
