On July 28, 2023, Condo Project Advisor was enhanced with a new status for Project Assessment Requests (PARs) within Condo Project Advisor® called “Project Certified” that gives you greater insight into project eligibility.

“Project Certified” Status

Project Certified status means that you'll have minimal project underwriting. You may need less project documentation on condo loans that receive a Project Certified PAR finding because there will be fewer project underwriting requirements to ensure compliance with the Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide (Guide) prior to selling the loan to Freddie Mac. This may save you time and your borrower money.

Project Certified Submission (PCS)

Starting December 8, 2023, on certain PAR submissions, Condo Project Advisor may indicate that a condo project is eligible for a Project Certified review. You are not required to review the project prior to requesting a PCS review. Freddie Mac will do the project review free of charge when the Seller provides the required documentation. If the condo project receives a Project Certified status through a PCS, then the same flexibilities and provisions applicable to projects with a Project Certified status PAR finding will apply to that project.
