Fannie Mae multifamily loans are critical to the functioning of US capital markets, providing continuous liquidity and a reliable source of mortgage capital. In 1988, Fannie Mae created the DUS Program as a backstop for multifamily mortgage markets, in reaction to extreme fluctuations and liquidity of capital markets. Today, Fannie Mae multifamily loans provide an essentially uninterruptible source of capital to the multifamily industry.
In developing the DUS multifamily loan program, Fannie Mae created an underwriting and processing license with private loan originators. Loan originators retain top end risk on the loans in exchange for the opportunity to underwrite and close Fannie Mae multifamily mortgages without pre-approval by Fannie Mae. As a result, Fannie Mae built a network of apartment lenders who originate, process, underwrite, commit and close Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage loans.Since its creation in 1988, Fannie Mae DUS multifamily loans have delivered more than $300 billion in liquidity to mortgage markets, providing multifamily financing to more than 6.3 million apartment units. It is now the largest single source of apartment financing in America. Fannie Mae DUS multifamily loans provide industry low interest rates, flexible loan terms and certainty of execution for apartment loans with a $3 million minimum loan amount.
