Tuesday, November 21, 2017 - 11:00am

The Federal Housing Finance Agency today announced that the 2018 multifamily lending caps for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be $35 billion apiece. The caps are both down from $36.5 in 2017 and are based on projections of the overall size of the 2018 multifamily originations market. The FHFA will review its estimates on a quarterly basis and adjust them if necessary, although it will not further reduce the caps.
