Multifamily Housing

Accessing capital—when you need it—at the most favorable rates. Reducing debt service payments or converting short-term debt into a long-term, fully amortizing loan. In the multifamily housing industry, these are critical to overall operations. That’s why clients turn to SMF to meet their financing needs—for construction, renovations, expansion, acquisitions, or refinancing.

With collectively over 100 years of experience with HUD programs, SMF understands every aspect of HUD-insured loan programs and underwriting requirements. Plus our relationship with HJ Sims gives us an inside track to non-HUD solutions.

As an originator, processor, underwriter, and funder of loans for housing projects, we take a hands-on approach with every client. Our technical expertise ensures a nimble, efficient process where promises are kept, expectations are managed, decisions are optimized, and even the most complicated deals are done right, on time.



Map Programs for Multifamily Housing

Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) loans for multifamily projects offer great terms:  80% – 90% loan-to-value, 1.11 to 1.17 debt service coverage, non-recourse provisions and up to 40-year, fully amortizing terms.  With more than 100 years of collective hands-on experience with HUD, the SMF team understands every aspect of the MAP loan programs and underwriting requirements. Whether you are looking to recapitalize, construct, rehabilitate, refinance, purchase, expand, or renovate, we can help you find the MAP program to make it happen.

MAP, or Multifamily Accelerated Processing, is a streamlined method and set of national standards for approved lenders to prepare, process, and submit loan applications for HUD multifamily financing. To be approved for MAP, all underwriters employed by a lender must attend a specialized HUD training session.
