Multifamily Hubs’ FY 12 Initial Endorsements
The FY 12 Multifamily Initial Endorsements Site provides detailed counts, maps, and graphs on MF Hubs’ production, but key highlights are provided below.
After exploding in FY 10 and continuing upwards in FY 11, in FY 12 Multifamily Hubs’ production
remained strong and set new records. In FY 12, Multifamily‘s 17 Hubs initially endorsed 1340 FHA &
Risk Sharing loans -- 8% more than the 1238 apartment / coop loans Hubs closed in FY 11. The 1340 is
the largest number of loans closed since FY 03 and 04. These 1340 loans provided 197,278 rental units
and totaled $13.1 billion, the highest dollar volume Hubs have ever closed in one fiscal year. As discussed later in these notes, the 8% increase was fueled by large increases in FHA’s 223f production
and by increases in Fannie and Freddie risk sharing with FHA.

FHA Volume Trends: After increasing tremendously in FY 10 and FY 11, Hubs’ FHA apt/
coop closings continued to climb. In FY 12, Hubs closed the highest number of loans, units and
$$ ever closed in one fiscal year for FHA apartment/ coop programs. The 17 Hubs closed 1,247
loans (with 185,461 units and $12.3 billion). The 1247 loan count exceeded FY 11’s closings (1,143)
by 9% and is more than triple the number of FHA apartment/coop loans Hubs closed in FY 08.
Even more impressive, the 1247 apt/ coop loan count exceeds the total loan closings for health
care, risk sharing & apartments combined in each of FY 05 thru FY 09.
