FHA-HUD APARTMENT LOAN
The FHA HUD 221(D)(4) program is the best product in terms of pricing and terms for apartment construction loans. It is a hybrid product where the permanent and construction loan are rate locked at the same time. This helps developers determine future interest rate cost and prevents the potential of interest rate creep which can be detrimental to the future earnings of a project.
With a 40 Year fixed rate loan and a 2 Year construction period, the FHA 221(D4) program is tough to beat.
