Listen to the Housing Wire podcast featuring Simone Beaty, director of single-family affordable lending at Freddie Mac, as she discusses our affordable housing solutions, impact of COVID-19 on underserved communities and how we're supporting shared equity programs to address the increasing demand for affordable homeownership.

Given the increasing demand for affordable housing in high-cost areas and the impact of COVID-19 on underserved communities, Freddie Mac is focused on providing solutions to clients that meet these needs. In this podcast, Simone Beaty, addresses:

  • Shared equity homeownership programs that provide housing opportunities with long-term affordability for low- or moderate-income homebuyers.
  • Our partnership with NextJob®, a national re-employment solutions company, to help servicers assist eligible homeowners with Home Possible® and HFA Advantage® mortgages in specific high-needs areas who experience employment challenges
  • Green initiatives like GreenCHOICE Mortgages® that facilitate the financing of energy efficient home improvements and energy efficient homes
  • Renovation mortgage options like the CHOICERenovation® mortgage offering that help finance home improvements
