Financing Options





Walker & Dunlop maintains a large network of relationships with major money center banks to provide construction, bridge and permanent financing for properties nationwide.


Walker & Dunlop’s proprietary bridge loan program offers short-term non-recourse loans to borrowers seeking to acquire or reposition multifamily, student, manufactured or seniors housing properties that do not currently qualify for permanent financing. Financing is available from $5 million up to $200+ million and can be structured with funding built in for planned capital expenditures. Once your property is ready for permanent financing, we can facilitate a seamless transition to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, life company or CMBS financing.
