Walker & Dunlop is the #2 FHA lender in the country and the #1 overall FHA construction lender

FHA is an important source of stable capital during countercyclical times. It also provides critical mission lending to increase housing affordability.

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). From high-leverage, non-recourse, and fully amortizing loans to construction-permanent single closing transactions, HUD programs provide a stable lending platform and certainty of execution with the explicit guarantee of the federal government.

With over $9.8 billion in our loan portfolio, Walker & Dunlop is a leader for FHA lending.

Our FHA experts will work with you to lock in lower, fixed rates, and extended cash flows for the full range of project types – market rate, affordable, mixed income, healthcare, seniors housing (including Alzheimer’s and assisted/independent living facilities), and beyond.

“The team at Walker & Dunlop were extremely professional and efficient in their execution of the processing and closing of our loans. I was impressed by the way they were able to look ahead, anticipate potential challenges, and make adjustments before issues actually came up. The team saved us time and money and we look forward to working with them again on our next transaction.”
