Laredo, Tex. (July 21, 2020) – Berkadia announces it has arranged the sale and financing of Lago del Mar Apartments, a 260-unit garden-style apartment community located in Laredo, Texas. Senior Managing Director Ryan Epstein of Berkadia’s Houston office, along with Managing Director Mike Miller, Senior Director Will Caruth and Director Cody Courtney of Berkadia’s San Antonio office, represented the seller, a Chicago-based real estate investment management firm.
Senior Managing Director Cutt Ableson of Berkadia’s Houston office procured financing for the buyer, Haley Real Estate Group, through Fannie Mae.
“Lago del Mar is a vintage apartment complex in an excellent location that was primed for a value-add execution,” said Epstein. “Located in the economic epicenter of the Rio Grande Valley, the city of Laredo continues to benefit from economic drivers including steady growth in shale oil and gas production, infrastructure construction, and growth in logistics and warehousing, all of which brings more business to town each year.”
Added Miller, “In addition, the property benefited from limited competition, with no comparable multifamily properties currently in lease-up, under construction or proposed within five miles.”
Built in 2000/2003 and located at 7550 Country Club Drive, Lago del Mar Apartments offers a range of one-, two- , and three-bedroom floor plans averaging 776 square feet. Units feature walk-in closets, nine-foot ceilings, patios or balconies, and a full-sized washer/dryer. Community amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, clubhouse, fitness center, dog park, playground and controlled-access gate. The property is ideally located within seven miles of downtown Laredo, two miles of Texas A&M University, and just four miles from Laredo International Airport.
