Freddie Mac Multifamily Loan

Does your multifamily property need some modest renovations? If so, a Freddie Mac Value Add Multifamily Loans could be the perfect solution for you. This program offers borrowers short-term and cost-effective financing for light property upgrades and renovations. Borrowers receive competitive pricing and lower overall closing costs. Both interest-only and uncapped floating-rate loans are available.
