Fannie Mae’s green lending program has been extremely popular—and because the business falls outside of Fannie’s lending caps, there is plenty of opportunity. However, this year, the business has fallen over the same time last year. However, the benefits continue to make the program a popular option for borrowers. Aaron Beck, a VP in NorthMarq Capital’s San Diego office, recently secured a $17 million refinance loan through the program for a 280-unit apartment property in Las Vegas.
