In a fluctuating economy, securing financing for large-scale multifamily projects is becoming increasingly challenging. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) supports the development of multifamily communities through FHA mortgage insurance programs. These types of loans are backed by the federal government, providing more stability and lower risk of default. Below, we’re chatting about the highlights of HUD financing and why a developer should consider pursuing it.
