Freddie to Buy, Securitize MF Loans, GSEs Start 1Q Strong

Freddie Mac Multifamily now will purchase from its Targeted Affordable Housing lender network multifamily tax-exempt loans, and aggregate and securitize them into a new series called M-Deals, the GSE announced last week. The move is in concert with the firmís launch of a new initiative Ė the Direct Purchase of Tax-Exempt Loans Ė to help keep rental housing affordable for lower income families and increase cost-effective financing for tax-exempt multifamily properties. Freddie explained these are tax-exempt loans issued by a city, county or state housing finance entity for apartments that have affordable rents for lower income individuals.

With originations expected to drop in 2018, will your shop turn to non-QM/non-prime mortgage products as a way to bolster volumes?

Yes, definitely. We’re planning a launch.


No. It’s still difficult compliance/regulatory-wise.


Maybe. It’s under consideration.


Not now. But things could change as 2018 progresses.
