For over 30 years, Fannie Mae Multifamily has been a reliable source of mortgage capital for the secondary mortgage market, primarily through our Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) model, the premier financing platform in the multifamily market. Our DUS MBS, backed by a single asset, transforms a mortgage loan into a more liquid asset, which increases available funds in the financial system.
Creating a DUS MBS begins with a multifamily loan made by one of our DUS lenders to a multifamily borrower — generally for-profit corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, real estate investment trusts, and individuals who invest in real estate for cash flow and equity returns — to finance the purchase or refinance of a multifamily property (property types include conventional multifamily, cooperative housing, dedicated student housing, manufactured housing, and seniors housing).
DUS MBS may be backed by a fixed-rate multifamily loan or an adjustable-rate multifamily loan. When a DUS MBS is issued, we guarantee to make timely payments of principal and interest on the MBS.
Multifamily MBS may be placed into Megas®, REMICs, or other structured transactions.
DUS Disclose® is a comprehensive source for Fannie Mae Multifamily resources, including disclosures, legal documents, data files, and options to search for MBS, Megas, and REMICs.
