Fannie Mae Apartment Loans - Small Balance
Fannie Mae is one of the nation’s leading secondary market sources of capital for apartment building financing. Fannie Mae provides mortgage capital for conventional, affordable housing, cooperatives, senior housing, student housing, manufactured housing communities and mobile home parks nationwide. Fannie Mae's apartment loan program offers many distinct advantages over traditional bank programs, including long-term fixed rates up to 30 years, high LTV ratios up to 80%, and nonrecourse financing (no personal guarantee to the principals). Fannie Mae offers first lien permanent financing for the acquisition or refinance (including cash-out) of multifamily properties nationwide.
