Housing

Strong foundation. Proven commitment
and results.

Raymond James has a commitment to affordable housing that dates back nearly seven decades. The Raymond James National Housing Group was the firm’s first specialty group within its Public Finance department, and is now one of the largest and longest standing municipal housing groups in the country. We have structured more than 1,500 mortgage revenue bond issues totaling more than $50 billion, and in 2018, we once again ranked as a Top 10 national underwriter for affordable housing bond issues.* In addition, Raymond James is recognized as one of the most innovative firms in the affordable housing industry, creating market timely products, such as our TBA-based “Turnkey” program, a first of its kind program created for housing finance agencies (HFAs) which has supported over $15 billion of single family loan reservations since this pioneering program was first launched in 2012.

Our Approach

The National Housing Group’s 18 housing professionals, located in 10 cities around the country, work closely with HFAs and affordable housing providers across the U.S., helping bring to market the most effective single family and multifamily financing structures based on then existing market conditions. By working to cultivate collaborative, productive, lasting partnerships with HFAs and developers, Raymond James has become one of the leading single family and multifamily housing finance platforms in the nation.
