Fannie Mae Reports Billions in Manufactured Home Community Deals, Details Others Lack

January 25th, 2019 Comments off



In a release to the Daily Business News on MHProNews, Fannie Mae (OTCQB: FNMA) said that they have “provided more than $65 billion in financing to support the multifamily market in 2018 with its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program. Fannie Mae continued to serve as a key source of liquidity by attracting a diverse investor base to purchase our DUS Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS), while building a profitable and sustainable book of business.”


For more than 30 years, the DUS platform has brought stability to the multifamily market. Our innovative thinking is driving the industry forward and our commitment to serving our customers remains our top priority,” said Jeffery Hayward, Executive Vice President of Multifamily, Fannie Mae. “Our lender partnerships are also propelling Fannie Mae to be part of a global movement to transform rental housing to be healthier for residents and to help reduce energy and water consumption at the properties we finance.”

The Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE) of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have both been given some latitude by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)) for using certain qualifying loans on manufactured home communities as credits toward their Duty to Serve (DTS) requirements. Right or wrong, that use of DTS has been far more robust than it has toward single family manufactured home loans.

Fannie Mae was recognized in 2018 as the largest issuer of Green Bonds in the world, with more than $20 billion in Green MBS backed by either green certified properties or properties targeting a reduction in energy or water consumption. Fannie Mae increased its Green Financing portfolio to over $50 billion in 2018, driven by $20 billion in Green Financing. In 2018, Fannie Mae made LIHTC equity investment commitments towards meeting FHFA’s $500 million volume cap by deploying equity to rural and other underserved housing markets throughout the United States. Additionally, Fannie Mae led the affordable market with overall production of $7.4 billion, an increase of 9% from 2017,” stated their release to MHProNews.

Multifamily had another outstanding year in 2018, thanks to our lenders,” said Rob Levin, Senior Vice President for Multifamily Customer Engagement, Fannie Mae. “Together, we supported all market segments, bringing liquidity to the market, while building a balanced portfolio that reflects our strategy with strong credit quality and mission-rich business.”

The following list are the top 10 DUS Lenders produced the highest business volumes in 2018. Also listing that follows also includes the Top 5 Lender rankings for highest volumes in 2018 for Multifamily Affordable Housing, Small Loans, Green Financing, Seniors Housing, Structured Transactions, Manufactured Housing Communities, and Student Housing:

Listed below are 2018 production highlights for individual business categories, which are included in the total multifamily production number.

  • Affordable Housing – $7.4 billion comprised of $6.0 billion in Multifamily Affordable Housing (for rent-restricted properties and properties receiving other federal and state subsidies), an increase of 10 percent from $5.4 billion in 2017; and $1.4 billion for properties with rent restrictions between 60 percent and 80 percent AMI, in line with $1.4 billion in 2017
  • Small Loans* – $2.2 billion
  • Green Financing – $20.1 billion (properties with Green Building Certifications or loans targeting a 25 percent reduction or more in energy or water consumption)
  • Student Housing – $2.7 billion
  • Structured Transactions – $9.5 billion
  • Seniors Housing – $2.3 billion
  • Manufactured Housing Communities – $2.9 billion, an increase of 56 percent from $1.9 billion in 2017


*Small Loans are defined as loans of $3 million or less nationwide and $5 million or less in high-cost markets, and typically finance multifamily properties with five to 50 units.

**Due to rounding, amounts reported may not add up to overall totals.

The above is insightful on several levels.  First, note that more than one of those manufactured home community DUS lenders has ties to Berkshire Hathaway.

Next, is that this is arguably part of the give-take mechanism that Arlington, VA based Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) has used to get some of their community members in the National Community Council (NCC) to swallow and ignore the single-family chattel lending that the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) has stressed should be at the core of DTS by the GSEs.




It also brings back into focus what some in manufactured housing call the “sell-out” or “betrayal” of the industry’s independent producers of manufactured homes. How so?  Consider this from Fannie Mae’s own site, which stresses their ‘support’ for manufactured housing as:

  1. A) The Multifamily Manufactured Housing Communities Market . …
  2. B) Develop an enhanced manufactured housing loanproduct for quality manufactured (homes)…

It must not be forgotten that MHI leaders held closed door meetings with Fannie and Freddie, to which none of the parties have released the meeting minutes, that ultimately resulted in the “new class of homes” program that has emerged…

…and so far has landed with a thud.  While Fannie and Freddie are both mum on specifics, the new HUD Code manufactured home shipments data is all the proof that is needed.  That data, combined with anecdotal information from various sources have made it clear that little has occurred from the new class of homes, other than noise from MHI, their allies, and Omaha-Knoxville puppet masters.

Fannie Mae Funds $5M Refi of Napa Olympia MHC in Calif.

April 1st, 2016 Comments off

mfg homes  nbcsandiego creditCapital One Multifamily informs MHProNews that it arranged a $5.0 million Fannie Mae 30-year term fixed-rate loan to refinance the Napa Olympia Mobile Lodge in American Canyon, Calif. Marking their 11th Fannie Mae transaction with Capital One, the owners acquired the property in 2005 with a ground lease in place.

The lessor agreed to extend the lease from seven years to 32.5 years, thereby allowing the owners to obtain new long-term debt on Napa Olympia, but then imposed a hard deadline on completing the transaction. Damon Reed, Capital One’s Director of MHC Finance, originated the transaction and he and his staff managed to get the loan approved within 35 days of application.

The funds will allow Napa to retire higher-interest rate debt, complete upgrades to the community and add equity to the partnership. The all-age 201-home site MHC, located 75 miles northwest of San Francisco, was built in 1968 and features a swimming pool, spa and RV storage. ##

Calif__sierra_mobile_home_park_santa_clarita__mhphoa__creditA press release from Capital One reveals it has arranged a $3.27 million Fannie Mae adjustable-rate loan for the purchase of Sierra Mobile Home Park in Santa Clarita, California. The seniors-only community has 74 home sites and features a clubhouse, pool and laundry room.

Senior Vice President Chad Thomas Hagwood, the head of Capital One Multifamily’s Southeast office in Birmingham, Ala. originated the transaction. The seven-year loan has a three-year interest only period with amortization on a 30-year schedule.

Sierra Mobile Home Park was built in 1956 and has been in the hands of the same owner for 50 years. The borrower intends to increase occupancy and adjust rates to market levels as it aims to increase its net operating income (NOI).

Separately, MHProNews has learned from MHPHOA that Kort & Scott Financial Group (KSFG) purchased Sierra in Oct. 2015, managed by Sierra Corporate Management, and that site rents are $650/mth. In a phone call, Capital One would neither confirm nor deny that KSFG is the current owner.

MHPHOA (Mobile Home Park Home Owners Allegiance) is a grass roots organization that advocates on behalf of residents of manufactured home communities. ##

Capital One Closes $150 Million in Deals in 45 Days

July 31st, 2015 Comments off

capital_one__their_ceditCapital One informs MHProNews that during the past 45 days it has completed 17 transactions for manufactured housing community investors providing over $150 million in funding. Led by Senior Vice Presidents Chad Thomas Hagwood and Damon Reed, the properties were located in Arizona, California, Colorado and Oregon, indicating the wide each of Capital One, and involved transactions with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and CMBS lenders.

In one instance Reed has assisted the financing of one borrowers asset four times in 18 years. “My practice is to present borrowers with a range of options, along with the rationale for those options, so they can make a decision that reflects their goals,” Reed explained. “Repeat borrowers are fundamental to achieving this level of volume.

Hagwood states their experience tells them which lender best meets the needs of each specific borrower. “We can offer an informed opinion, based on the hundreds of deals we’ve closed, whether Fannie is likely to grant a waiver for a specific issue,” Hagwood said. “This sort of experience-based knowledge streamlines the process and cements the best deal for the customer. Our customers know that when we issue a loan application, the deal is going to close.

Reed adds: “Our borrowers trust us,” Reed said. “Even in situations where their deposit has become nonrefundable, they are confident that our team will get the deals approved.” ##
