HUD FHA Apartment/Multifamily Loans/Financing

HUD loans with the lowest 30 to 40 year fixed rates in America, our apartment loans are by far the most attractive multifamily financing in the U.S.

With the lowest 30 to 40 year fixed rates in America, our HUD Apartment loans are by far the most attractive multifamily financing available in the US.

Apartment Loan Store has been a specialist in funding HUD Multifamily Apartment Loans since 1999 lending in all 50 states.   

Created as a cabinet level agency in 1965, HUD is an acronym for US Department of Housing and Urban Development. HUD’s purpose is to create more quality housing in the US. It is a misunderstanding by many that HUD only supports financing on low income or affordable housing projects – although HUD certainly encourages the development of affordable projects. More HUD apartment loans are done today on market rent apartment buildings than affordable rent complexes. 

Why are HUD Multifamily loan interest rates so low? HUD issues mortgage insurance on these loans which allows them to be pooled and sold as Gennie Mae (GNMA) bonds on Wall Street. These bonds carry the full faith and credit guaranty of the United States Government, which makes them very attractive to low risk investors both nationally and internationally.
