TAMPA (October 24, 2012) – Lee Weaver, senior vice president and senior director of NorthMarq’s Tampa Regional office, arranged first mortgage refinancing of $6 million for Villa San Marco, a 50-unit 200-bed off-campus student housing property located at 2400 W. Tharpe Street in Tallahassee near Florida State University. Financing was based on a 10-year term and a 30-year amortization schedule and was arranged for the borrower, by NorthMarq through its seller-servicer relationship with Freddie Mac.
“This is the third Freddie Mac deal we’ve placed for this sponsor group,” said Weaver. “Freddie Mac’s familiarity with the market and the sponsor was the key to a smooth closing.”
