Minnesota Housing is hiring! We are looking for an underwriter with Multifamily lending experience in order to facilitate the preservation of affordable multifamily housing across the state. The Preservation Underwriter will be responsible for application review, technical assistance, and underwriting multifamily projects per Agency standards.

The Preservation Underwriter will apply the Agency underwriting standards to assess financial feasibility and strength. Once selected for funding, the Preservation Underwriter will review and approve the due diligence report, as well as continue to assess financial feasibility as a project moves to closing. In addition to reviewing applications and underwriting loans for the POHP and RRDL programs, this position is also responsible for reviewing and underwriting a small number of Requests for Action (RFAs)/loan servicing requests.

  • Generate and test multiple assumptions, trends, and financing scenarios to review financial feasibility with the goal of maximizing available resources and/or assessing Agency risk
