“When you work with a mortgage banker for 15 years they become as much a part of your team as your architects, engineers and contractors. Sims has consistently delivered positive results and have closed deals that otherwise would have never happened. Their knowledge of each HUD program is unsurpassed, and it is very obvious that every HUD office they have worked with has the utmost confidence and respect for their team. With the respect from the different offices, they are able to reach out to the higher levels of HUD to solve problems. We look forward to working with Sims for many years to come, and we strongly recommend them to any company interested in completing a HUD loan.”

Partnered Right: 

  • Vintage Realty Company purchased the development rights for Elan at Terra Bella, a proposed 178-unit market-rate project in a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND). Given Vintage’s preference for long-term, fixed-rate financing, they turned to SMF to obtain HUD-insured construction and permanent financing.

Structured Right:

  • SMF worked with HUD and Vintage to provide additional risk mitigation during the loan underwriting and closing process that enabled HUD to approve the deal and to get to closing before the financing commitment deadline expired.

Executed Right: 

  • The timeframe from submission of the mortgage insurance application to closing was slightly under 7 months. The loan covered 85% of the Project’s replacement cost, excluding working capital and stabilization costs.

Financed Right: 

  • SMF has closed 23 HUD-insured loans, totaling close to $350 million, for Vintage since 2002.
