NewPoint Real Estate Capital arranged approximately $158 million to refinance four Bard Investment Company apartment properties, including Villagio in Tempe, AZ

NewPoint Provides $158M Refi on Phoenix-Area Portfolio 

NewPoint Real Estate Capital LLC has provided $157,920,000 in Freddie Mac loans on behalf of Bard Investment Company for the refinancing of a four-property multifamily portfolio in the Phoenix area. The conventional garden-style apartment complexes include the 472-unit Villagio in Tempe, the 200-unit Chandler Meadows in Chandler and the 222-unit Stonegate and 201-unit Fiesta Village, both located in Mesa. 

The four 10-year Freddie Mac loans were originated by NewPoint executive managing director Jay Blasberg and managing director Jarett Blasberg. 

“Our client was able to pull out a substantial amount of built-up equity while locking in 10-year interest only payments at historically low interest rates within a few days of application,” said Jay Blasberg. “Bard Investment Company has been adding value to the assets over time through unit renovations and common area upgrades. They are outstanding operators, and the properties were in sterling condition.”
