by Haisten Willis

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Love Funding, a provider of FHA multifamily, affordable and healthcare financing, has secured a $14.1 million loan for the refinancing of Huntington Meadows Apartment Homes, a 200-unit affordable apartment community in Austin. Love Funding’s Laura Saull-Smith secured the financing through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 223(f) loan insurance program for the purchase or refinancing of existing multifamily rental housing. Using the program enabled the ownership group to lock in a fixed interest rate for a 35-year term, fund a replacement reserve and free up more than $1 million for repairs and upgrades. Decker Lane Partners LP purchased the property in 2015. It was originally built in 1998 as Gardens at Decker Lane, which drew on funding support from low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs). Decker Lane Partners and its management company, AmeriSouth Realty, took over the property in 2011.
