For the second year in a row, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. has reported securitizing a record level of apartment loans.

During all of 2017, the issuance of multifamily securities by the McLean, Virginia-based secondary mortgage lender amounted to $68 billion.

Last year’s multifamily issuance, which turned out to be an all-time record for Freddie Mac, was up from $51.2 billion in 2016 — also a record at the time.
