The Small Balance Loan (SBL) origination initiative was first announced in October 2014, and expands the company's continuing effort to better serve less populated markets and provide additional liquidity to smaller apartment properties. Loans in the program generally range from $1 million to $5 million and have five or more units. Freddie Mac has a specialty network of Seller/Servicers and SBL lenders with extensive experience in this market who source loans across the country. Freddie Mac purchases and aggregates loans by seller and will then securitize each seller's deals when pool sizes are generally more than $100 million.
