Strong relationships create impressive results

 
We originate multifamily loans principally for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). We choose the organization to approach based on your specific needs so we can provide you the ideal solution with the lowest cost of financing.

As the first fully approved Delegated Underwriter and Servicer (DUS® ), Wells Fargo Multifamily Capital can originate, underwrite, close, and deliver multifamily mortgages without Fannie Mae’s prior review. As a DUS lender, we are able to act quickly and be flexible in structuring transactions.

Freddie Mac

Wells Fargo Multifamily Capital is an approved Freddie Mac Program Plus® Seller/Servicer, which allows us to underwrite a potential loan transaction and submit documentation to Freddie Mac for approval.
Freddie Mac then re-underwrites the loan and issues a commitment to purchase the loan from Wells Fargo Multifamily Capital while we remain the servicer for the life of the loan.

FHA-insured mortgages

The FHA provides mortgage insurance to approved lenders, such as Wells Fargo, to make loans to borrowers for multifamily and healthcare properties. These loans facilitate long-term, fixed-rate, fully amortizing financing, and allow financing through the issuance of tax-exempt bonds and Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities (GNMA-MBS).
Borrowers benefit from low interest rates and high-leverage debt, saving you money and providing hard-to-obtain capital. Our originators and underwriters have more than 30 years of experience working with HUD and the FHA.
We offer multifamily and specialty financing, as outlined in the National Housing Act:
