As a long-time Freddie Mac Seller/Servicer, CPC offers a range of competitively priced, reliable mortgage products for the acquisition and refinancing of multifamily properties. This includes Freddie Mac’s conventional financing with loans ranging from $5 million to $100 million with 5- to 10-year terms, and the Small Balance Loan (SBL) product which helps to close the gap in the market for flexible financing for small buildings by offering loans from $1 million to $7.5 million with flexible terms, prepayment options, competitive low rates, and streamlined pricing, underwriting, closing, and funding process.

The SBL product can be used for the acquisition and refinancing of properties with five or more units that may have tax abatements and Section 8 housing choice vouchers, senior housing without services, extended-use agreements for properties that are no longer in the investor compliance period for Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, and properties with space for commercial use.
