Walker & Dunlop Launches New Lending Platform
Walker & Dunlop, Inc. announced the launch of a new digital lending platform powered by machine learning to dramatically grow its small balance multifamily lending business.

"Multifamily investors want a faster and more transparent borrowing experience, That's why we asked our data scientists and engineers to automate loan sizing and pricing. We created a more efficient process for investors to review financing options, tailor them to their projects' needs, and monitor the loan process with dramatically more transparency – all through our custom-built technology."

- Walker & Dunlop Senior Vice President and Chief Production Officer Alison Williams.

Walker & Dunlop's small balance technology platform brings the following advantages:
  • Streamlined lending experience that automatically generates quotes in minutes utilizing predictive algorithms and property cash flows
  • Interest rate and property value calculations using proprietary data on real-time rents, expenses, and sales comparables
  • Greater transparency of loan terms from quote to close

Walker & Dunlop will continue to accelerate the growth of its small multifamily loan platform by automating underwriting processes, expanding its brand as the premier multifamily lender in the U.S., and combining its best-in-class people with best-in-class technology to deliver the best financing experience to our clients.
