Fannie, Freddie May Pare Multifamily Market Share

Atlanta—CPE/MHN interviews Faron Thompson, managing director of Jones Lang LaSalle, during the Mortgage Bankers Association’s Commercial Real Estate Finance/Multifamily Housing Convention & Expo 2012.

In a wide-ranging interview, Thompson notes that Fannie and Freddie may reduce their market share down to closer to 50 percent of the multifamily lending space. Life companies will further increase their level of activity this year, notes Thompson. Thompson explains why he feels confident impending Fannie and Freddie reforms will not likely affect the multifamily markets for three to four more years.
