ASK MIKE MONDAYS - Michael, what is your opinion of FHA APARTMENT loans?

A timely question; Michael and his team are currently assuming a FHA loan. FHA is a federally guaranteed program under the government’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). FHA Loans can be used for the purchase/refinance as well as the construction/ substantial rehabilitation of multifamily or healthcare properties. Loans are non-recourse (except standard carve-outs) and rates are very competitive with 35-40 year fixed terms and amortizations. FHA are available nationwide and are available for any market (primary, secondary, tertiary). Michael describes some of the benefits and challenges with FHA financing of large apartment buildings.
