Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 10:15am

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today announced that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac each have $35 billion multifamily lending caps for 2019. Those figures are unchanged from 2018 and are based on FHFA’s projections of the size of the 2019 multifamily originations market. The FHFA will review its estimates of the multifamily loan origination market each quarter and will adjust caps if necessary, although it will not reduce the caps.
