Freddie Mac Apartment Loan Program - Small Balance

Freddie Mac is another nationwide source of mortgage capital for apartment building financing. The Freddie Mac small balance apartment loan program offers many unique and beneficial features for apartment purchases and refinances, with a minimum loan size of $1,000,000. The loan application process is simple and streamlined. As an example, tax returns for the borrower and the property are not required. Loans typically close in 45 days and the program has much lower costs than other government or agency programs. Loans are non-recourse, which means that the borrower is not required to guarantee payments personally. Prepayment penalties are flexible, ranging from yield maintenance to soft stepdown. Perhaps the best feature is that Freddie Mac offers a free rate hold for 45 days from application. If rates change during the processing period, the loan rate is automatically held from the date of application.
