Freddie Mac Green Advantage and Green Rebate Products
Freddie Mac is offering rebates and underwriting for green property assessments and building improvements. They are offering both better pricing and 75% more funds for properties that commit to reducing energy and water usage by 15%.
Fannie Mae Multifamily Green Financing
Fannie Mae offers 10 basis points (0.1%) reduction in their all-in interest rate. Over the life of a 10-year $10 million loan, that could result in a savings of $95,000 or more in interest. Their preferential pricing is available on new and existing multifamily properties that either meet a green certification or commit to reducing energy or water usage by 20%.
Property Assessed Clean Energy Financing (PACE)*
By financing energy and water improvements as a public good, PACE is able to write the repayment of the loan in the property valuation where it is paid back along-side the property taxes. This method extends the life of the loan and attaches its value to the property so that it is passed on in the case of a sale. This often means loans are cash flow positive from day one.
*PACE financing is only available in certain jurisdictions. Contact MaGrann Associates for more information.
