You've Helped Us Reach New Heights
January 17, 2018
2017 was outstanding – for the third consecutive year, our partnership with our extraordinary Seller/Servicers, Investors and Borrowers propelled Freddie Mac to the position of the nation’s largest financier of multifamily properties.
Last year, we surpassed $73 billion in loan purchase and guarantee volume — a new record for Freddie Mac Multifamily. Our multifamily securitization volume also rose to new heights at $68 billion, leveraging a unique business model that transfers the majority of risk away from taxpayers.
We set volume records in several of our business lines and offerings as well. But our success in 2017 encompassed more than numbers: The strength of our innovative products, our expertise in underwriting and the unparalleled demand for our world-class securities brought liquidity and affordability to every corner of the multifamily market. Along the way, we gained efficiencies and rolled out a number of new lending and investment offerings to serve additional market needs.
None of this would have been possible without you, our customers. You partnered with us every step of the way to meet the demands of a changing industry. And I believe that the close collaboration between you and the dedicated, talented team at Freddie Mac Multifamily remains a principal factor driving our mutual success.
On behalf of the Freddie Mac Multifamily management team, thank you for another great year. We look forward to our continued partnership in 2018 and beyond.
All the best wishes for the new year,
EVP of Multifamily Business
