FANNIE MAE  – Small Loan Program  –

$1,000,000 to $5,0000 (up to $6 million in large US  cities)

This Fannie Mae Small Loan Program has less documentation requirements, lower closing costs, slightly higher interest rates than the Fannie Mae standard loan program.  Fannie normally requires the principal(s) to have a minimum of 10 units of duplexes or more for three years, or 4 to 5 similar multifamily properties in ownership and/or management.  Additionally, Fannie would like to see post closing liquidity not less than the sum of nine months principal and interest of the new loan, plus a net worth equal to or greater than the loan amount.  If all of the principals reside more than 100 miles from the property Fannie may reduce the maximum loan to value by 5%.  In conclusion, if you are a little short of these levels please call to discuss the possibility to obtaining an exception.
