Berkadia announces it has arranged the $43.2 million sale and $34.6 million financing of Allister Place, a 384-unit multifamily asset located in Tampa, Florida. Senior Managing Director Cole Whitaker of the Orlando office and Managing Director Jason Stanton of the Tampa office brokered the sale on behalf Aspen Square, the seller. Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg and Associate Director Matt Robbins of Berkadia’s South Florida office arranged the financing on behalf of the buyer, a joint venture between The Michaelson Group, a real estate investment firm based in Jacksonville, and GMF Capital, a real estate investment firm based in New York City.

The South Florida team arranged a 10-year, fixed-rate Freddie Mac loan with 5 years of interest only payments followed by a 30-year amortization and an aggressive fixed rate.

“Strong annual net migration coupled with greater housing demand in the area has made Tampa one of America’s fastest growing cities,” said Sinberg. “The region’s economy has consistently grown over the past two years, and still continues to flourish as the area has added about 30,000 jobs to the market.”

Tampa has been listed as one of the top 10 places to invest in real estate in the U.S. for the first time in 40 years according to Pricewaterhouse Cooper and the Urban Land Institute.
