Small Balance Loans with Catherine Evans and Meg McElgunn

Small multifamily properties are an important part of the affordable rental market. They are often owned by individuals or smaller entities, and are operated differently than the larger multifamily properties that many of us think of when we hear the words "multifamily" or "apartment." In this episode, Steve and Corey talk with Meg McElgunn, senior director of SBL Production, and Catherine Evans, vice president of SBL Underwriting. Together, they take an in-depth look at some of the unique characteristics of small multifamily properties through the lens of the Freddie Mac Multifamily Small Balance Loan program.
