Fannie Mae Near-Stabilization Execution Financing

Nearly Stabilized Apartment Building and Multifamily Development Execution Financing Insured by Fannie Mae

For investors looking for a source of low-rate, non-recourse permanent financing to get a recently built or renovated multifamily property through the lease-up period, Fannie Mae’s Near-Stabilization Execution Loan might be just the right solution. Designed for newly constructed or recently renovated properties that are expected to achieve stabilized occupancy within 120 days, Near-Stabilization Execution Loans are an effective loan option for investors with properties that are currently being financed with a short-term construction or renovation loan, and want to switch to a permanent financing option.

Fannie Mae Near-Stabilization Execution Loans loans offer a maximum LTV of up to 75%, fixed and variable-rate terms between 5 and 12 years, and amortizations of between 5 and 30 years. Like many other Fannie Mae multifamily products, these loans offer competitive interest rates and are non-recourse. Additionally, Near-Stabilization Execution Loans are fully assumable (with lender approval and a 1% fee) and are available for both affordable and market-rate properties.
