SAN DIEGO—Strong fundamentals, coupled with a supply/demand imbalance and rising interest rates, paint a rosy picture of the apartment sector for lenders, speakers at the MBA CREF/Multifamily conference here told attendees Tuesday. The panel “Mortgage Banking & Multifamily Finance” tackled the changes that could impact multifamily finance and the role of the mortgage-banking industry.

Michele Evans, SVP and multifamily COO of Fannie Mae, said the agency did $67 billion in business, including $6.8 billion in affordable housing, $5.5 billion in seniors housing and $27.6 billion in green products. The latter has really taken off, landlords and tenants noting impactful energy and water savings in green buildings.
