Apartment Developers Rediscover FHA Multifamily Mortgages

FHA multifamily mortgages are being rediscovered in California as the state continues to be one of the most vibrant rental housing markets in the nation. Class A multifamily housing in desirable communities always has been a popular alternative for many middle-income individuals and families priced out of the ownership market.

The cutbacks or outright shutdowns of multifamily construction lending by commercial banks, insurance companies, FNMA and FHLMC have blocked the flow of capital for development and refinance of multifamily housing. California multifamily developers have been forced to sit on their hands during a time of historically low interest rates when their contribution to the nation’s economic recovery could be significant.

Historically, FHA multifamily mortgages have played little role as a conduit for multifamily mortgages in California. Statutory mortgage limits that worked fine in Texas and the Southeast simply didn’t cover the high cost of land in desirable California markets.

But recently, HUD has made significant changes to its programs to help open up capital access to high cost markets. HUD has also waived Davis-Bacon prevailing wage requirements for previously completed multifamily projects which have been unable to refinance existing construction loans.

It is time for California multifamily developers to reacquaint themselves with FHA multifamily mortgages, construction perm loan and refinance programs.
