“April’s financing activity was primarily due to boards continuing to borrow to funds for capital improvement projects or refinance existing debt, a trend we expect to continue in the coming months,” stated Mr. Howe. “We attribute this ongoing activity to the team’s ability to provide creative financing packages—loans more traditional banks often shy away from—to meet the varying needs of New York area housing cooperatives.”
