Freddie Mac Prices First Offering of Certificates Backed by Single-Family Rentals

New Security Expands Support for Affordable Rental Housing

MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/07/17 -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today expanded its support for affordable housing with a new series of credit risk transfer securities backed predominantly by single-family rental (SFR) properties that are overwhelmingly affordable for low-income and working families.

SR Certificates are backed by mortgages secured primarily by single-family rental housing properties (SFR Loans). In this inaugural offering, the company expects to issue approximately $161 million in SR01 certificates, which includes 59 loans originated primarily by CoreVest American Finance Lender LLC. The SR Certificates are expected to settle on or about December 18, 2017.

"We are pleased to announce another securitization capability that will bring liquidity, stability and affordability to a market that is fragmented but vital to the nation's housing landscape," said Robert Koontz, vice president of Multifamily Capital Markets. "Consistent with our multifamily mission, this inaugural transaction is an important step in ensuring an ample supply of affordable rental housing."

Of the 2,355 properties included in this transaction, 94% are affordable to families earning less than 100% of area median income (AMI). In addition, 71% are affordable to low-income families earning less than 80% AMI and more than 12% affordable to families earning 50% of AMI or less. The loans were not underwritten by Freddie Mac at the time of origination but meet the company's current underwriting standards.

"Today, Freddie Mac Multifamily has taken another important step to increase the availability of affordable rental housing in communities across the country," said David D. Leopold, vice president of targeted affordable sales & investments at Freddie Mac Multifamily. "Single-family rentals provide an important alternative for the millions of families looking for options beyond rental apartments who may not have the means to -- or choose not to -- purchase a home. We are using our multifamily financing capability to help meet this critical need and ensure that as families grow, their homes can grow with them."
