Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 29, 2013
Commercial Loan Direct, a business division of CLD Capital and one of the top five online originators of commercial and apartment loans in the country, has increased its overall FHA apartment loan production by taking the product nationwide.
FHA operates under HUD, which is the largest mortgage insurer in the United States. HUD administers the FHA mortgage loan programs offering long-term, non-recourse financing for multifamily, affordable apartments and cooperatives, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, seniors housing, critical access hospitals and manufactured housing communities. As a correspondent for the FHA Multifamily Accelerated Processing ("MAP") program, Commercial Loan Direct provides access to the flexibility of the HUD FHA loan programs on an expedited basis.
As other capital sources have decreased considerably, borrowers are turning to agency lending for new originations and refinancing of their apartment projects. The primary benefit of FHA is that it is a source of financing that is always available despite the volatility of the market. Commercial Loan Direct has prepared an overview of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) FHA apartment mortgage insurance programs to help familiarize FHA loan applicants with these programs by visiting CLD's website.
