About Us

As the leader in multifamily finance, we combine innovative solutions with expert risk management. Most of the units we fund are affordable for moderate- to low-income renters. And the vast majority of risk is transferred to private investors.

It's all part of our continuous quest to champion a better housing finance system – one that's good for the industry, investors and America's taxpayers.

Our Mission

Our Mission is our Passion

We are on a mission to expand affordable rental housing for all Americans, while building a better multifamily finance system.

It's what drives us. It's what we do.

What’s the difference between Multifamily and Single-Family business?

The Freddie Mac Multifamily business is similar to the Single-Family business. Both buy and securitize mortgages originated by a network of approved lenders; we do not lend money directly to borrowers. By selling mortgage loans to us, lenders receive money that they can use to make loans to additional borrowers.
