Arbor Recognized as a Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHA Top Multifamily Lender
Arbor has originated billions of dollars in multifamily loans over the last three decades through our long-term partnerships with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), consistently outperforming quarterly projections. Known industrywide as a top multifamily lender, Arbor has the unique ability to maximize investment portfolios with the type of personal touch not seen anywhere else.
Top Fannie Mae DUS Multifamily Lender
Arbor’s Fannie Mae DUS® Standard loans provide competitive, tiered pricing for the acquisition or refinancing of multifamily projects nationwide, including recently completed projects. Arbor has been named a Top 10 DUS® Lender for 16 consecutive years, most recently in 2022. We’ve also been a Top 5 DUS® Producers for Small Loans lender for more than a decade, most recently earning this recognition in 2022.
Top Fannie Mae Multifamily Lender
Arbor is an experienced Fannie Mae partner with expertise in a wide range of loan products, including Green Financing, Student Housing, and Seniors Housing. As a two-time Fannie Mae Top 5 Green Financing Lender, our suite of Green Financing solutions includes options for acquisition, refinance, and supplemental financing. We were also named a Top 5 Student Housing Lender and a Top 5 Seniors Housing Lender in 2017. Arbor’s DUS® Student Housing loan product provides attractive terms and competitive prices for purchasing or refinancing properties that specifically cater to a student tenant base that may or may not be readily convertible to conventional multifamily housing.
Fannie Mae Technology Leader
Arbor was awarded Fannie Mae’s prestigious Excellence in Technology Award in 2022. As a top Fannie Mae multifamily lender and a longtime partner, Arbor was an early adopter of the DUS Gateway® API, which enables Arbor’s internal systems to communicate data directly into Fannie Mae systems.
Top Freddie Mac Multifamily Lender
As a five-time Top Small Balance Loan Lender, including in 2022, Arbor’s Freddie Mac Small Balance Loan program streamlines the entire loan process for multifamily acquisition and refinancing loans ranging from $1 million to $7.5 million. Small Balance loans have highly competitive interest rates, provide the ability to borrow up to 80% of the property’s value, and offer the option to make interest-only payments for part of or the entire term of the loan. As a top multifamily lender, Arbor was instrumental in developing the program that debuted in 2014 and was one of Freddie Mac’s first Small Balance Loan lenders.
Top FHA Lender
Arbor has been recognized in the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Top 20 Firm Commitments by Lender ranking four years in a row, most recently in 2022. Arbor is licensed to administer HUD’s FHA mortgage insurance programs for long-term, non-recourse financing for market-rate and affordable apartments and cooperatives, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and seniors housing.
HUD-Approved MAP Lender
As an approved FHA Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Lender, Arbor provides access to flexible FHA multifamily loan programs on an expedited basis and financing for acquisitions, refinancing, moderate rehabilitation, substantial rehabilitation, or new construction. Arbor has closed more than 250 FHA loans and counting, another reason we continue to earn top multifamily lender recognition from our lending partners.
HUD-Approved LIHTC Lender
The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program gives state and local LIHTC-allocating agencies the equivalent of approximately $9 billion in annual budget authority to issue tax credits for the acquisition, rehabilitation, or new construction of rental housing targeted to lower-income households. Arbor is an approved LIHTC lender. With HUD’s removal of the LIHTC loan cap, our experienced team is ready to help you pursue larger deals that will help bring more affordable housing to communities across the country.
