Housing

Expert solutions for better housing.

The Raymond James National Housing Group is dedicated solely to providing financial solutions to providers of single-family affordable housing programs and multi-family housing developments.

Housing transactions are inherently complex because of the accompanying analytical processes. Our analysts – some of the most skilled in the industry – develop proprietary models to achieve the type of analysis necessary to meet the issuer’s financing goals. Since 1988, we have structured more than 1,500 single-family mortgage revenue bond issues totaling more than $50 billion. In the past five years, we have utilized a broad range of enhanced and unenhanced multi-family housing bonds in managing more than 100 issues totaling more than $4.5 billion.

In 2016, Raymond James once again ranked as a Top 10 national underwriter for affordable housing issues, serving as senior or sole manager on 17 single-family and multi-family issues with a total par amount of $343 million.*
