Fannie Mae Finances Record Volume of Nearly $4 Billion in Multifamily Seniors Housing through Third Quarter of 2017

Washington, D.C. – November 7th, 2017 (PRNewswire) Fannie Mae (OTC Bulletin Board: FNMA) provided nearly $4 billion in financing to support the Seniors Housing market through the third quarter of 2017 – the highest volume in the history of its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program. The unique DUS risk-sharing platform has provided pricing transparency and risk alignment to borrowers, lenders, and investors for nearly 30 years.

“Fannie Mae is committed to Seniors Housing which serves a critical need for our country’s aging population,” said Roosevelt Davis, Director of Multifamily Seniors Housing, Fannie Mae. “Because these transactions are complex, we work closely with our approved DUS lenders who are experienced in financing Seniors Housing, and we target our financing to strong sponsors and operators in this market sector.”

Fannie Mae’s leadership in the Seniors Housing market spans more than two decades and has long been recognized in the multifamily industry, with a book of business of $13.4 billion through the third quarter of 2017. The company finances Senior Housing properties across the spectrum of acuity – Independent Living, Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s/ Dementia Care, or any combination of the three. Fannie Mae also finances Continuing Care Retirement Communities and some facilities with Skilled Nursing.

“For the last decade, Fannie Mae has worked side by side with Capital Senior Living to help us achieve our strategic goals,” said Larry Cohen, Chief Executive Officer, Capital Senior Living. “The outstanding team at Fannie Mae has in-depth knowledge of the seniors housing industry, a track record of reliable execution and goes above and beyond to address our needs whether through acquisition financing, portfolio refinancing or supplemental loans.”

Fannie Mae’s significant increase in Seniors Housing business in 2017 is attributed primarily to the company’s unique Credit Facility product. “Our Credit Facilities are flexible, powerful financing tools that allow borrowers to manage debt across their Seniors Housing Portfolios,” said Phyllis Klein, Multifamily Vice President for Production, Fannie Mae. “Borrowers value the ability to combine variable- and fixed-rate debt, and to buy and sell assets on their schedule through our Credit Facilities.”

Homeownership is a Shared Value across Party Lines

– The national homeownership rate is at its highest level since 2014, and a full percentage point above the historical low set in the second quarter of 2016

– Nationally, about two-thirds of both Republicans and Democrats agree that owning a home is necessary to live the American Dream

– Seventy-three percent of Republicans and Democrats believe that owning a home increases a person’s standing in the local community

– At least 90 percent of Republicans and Democrats are confident they can afford to stay in their homes as long as they want

Seattle, WA – November 10th, 2017 (PRNewswire) Homeownership is an American value that transcends political parties, according to the Zillow® Housing Aspirations Report™(i). The biannual survey found that 68.7 percent of Republicans and 65.1 percent of Democrats see owning a home as essential to living the American Dream.

About two-thirds of self-identified Republicans and Democrats agreed that homeownership is key to a higher social status, and close to three-quarters of respondents who identified with either party also believe that being a homeowner increases standing in the local community.

Many issues have a distinct political divide, but the majority of Republicans and Democrats agree on the value of owning a home. National homeownership rates are returning from a historical low point following the housing crisis, a signal that the recession did not fundamentally harm overall sentiment toward homeownership. Millennials, who delayed homeownership but are finally buying homes, are the generation most likely to say homeownership is part of the American Dream, regardless of political affiliation.

“In a time of political division, these survey results remind us of something most Americans share – the sense that owning a home is a big part of living the American Dream,” said Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Svenja Gudell. “Home ownership — and its ability to create wealth, stability, and community – doesn’t depend on political affiliation. As we debate the national and local politics surrounding affordability and tax reform, it’s worthwhile to pause and remember a value most of us can agree on.”

The survey showed Americans across the country agree that buying a home is part of the American Dream and a good financial decision in markets that are regularly setting record-high prices and those that have yet to recover from the housing crash.

Los Angeles is one of the least affordable housing markets in the country, and nearly half of the survey respondents expect they will have to wait at least three years to buy a home. However, Los Angeles residents are more likely than residents of other large metropolitan areas to say that owning a home is necessary to live the American Dream, with 72 percent of respondents agreeing with the statement.

In Las Vegas, home values are still 23.3 percent below the peak values set during the housing bubble(ii), and 15.9 percent of homeowners are underwater on their mortgages(iii). Despite this, 67 percent of respondents agree that homeownership is essential to the American Dream.

The survey also revealed that even amidst rapidly rising home values, most Americans feel confident that they will be able to stay in their current homes as long as they would like, but residents of the most expensive metros are less certain they will eventually be able to buy their own home. Ninety-one percent of Republicans and 89.6 percent of Democrats report feeling confident that they will be able to afford to stay where they live now, but at least 40 percent of respondents in West Coast markets don’t plan on buying a home for at least five years, if they ever do.

Republicans and Democrats alike tend to think that homeownership offers advantages beyond financial benefits. The vast majority of respondents to the survey view owning a home as better for raising a family, making ties within the community, and overall quality of life, regardless of their local housing market.

The Zillow Housing Aspirations Report is a semi-annual survey sponsored by Zillow and conducted by IPSOS. It asks 10,000 renters and homeowners in 20 metros across the country about their views on homeownership and their personal housing expectations for the future.
