New Details on Multifamily SOFR ARMs

Today Fannie Mae released additional details about our Multifamily Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) ARM products. This comes as a follow-up to our July 31 announcement.

Beginning September 1, 2020, Fannie Mae will begin quoting, and on October 1, 2020 accept delivery of, Multifamily SOFR ARMs. Fannie Mae’s ARM 7-6, Hybrid ARM, Structured ARM (SARM), and a new ARM 5-5 will all be indexed to the 30-day Average SOFR published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Additional details can be found here.

As a reminder, under FHFA guidance, Fannie Mae will no longer acquire Multifamily ARM loans indexed to LIBOR by the end of 2020.
