CMBS Loans vs. Agency Loans for Multifamily Financing

When it comes to getting financing for a multifamily property, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac multifamily loans, also known as agency loans, are some of the most popular options on the market. When compared with CMBS financing, these agency loans have a variety of similarities and differences. Both agency and CMBS are typically non-recourse and fully assumable, and offer highly competitive interest rates. However, agency loans usually offer even lower rates than CMBS, with rates starting at 3.75-3.9%.
