The ratings are based on information provided by the issuer as of June 1, 2014. Fitch does not expect to rate the following classes of FREMF 2014-K38: the $182,978,938 interest-only class X3, or the $93,040,938 class D. Fitch does not expect to rate the $182,978,938 class X3 of the Structured Pass-Through Certificates, Series K-038.

The certificates represent the beneficial interests in a pool of 105 commercial mortgages secured by 105 properties. The Freddie Mac Structured Pass-Through Certificates, Series K-038 (Freddie Mac SPC K-038) represents a pass-through interest in the corresponding class of securities issued by FREMF 2014-K38. Each Freddie Mac SPC K-038 security has the same designation as its underlying FREMF 2014-K38 class. All loans were originated by various seller/servicers according to the guidelines of the Freddie Mac Capital Markets Execution (CME) product. The certificates follow a sequential-pay structure.

Fitch reviewed a comprehensive sample of the transaction's collateral, including site inspections on 68.6% of the properties by balance and cash flow analysis of 76.0% of the pool.

The transaction has a Fitch stressed debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) of 1.15x, a Fitch stressed loan-to value (LTV) of 99.7%, and a Fitch debt yield of 8.49%. Fitch's aggregate net cash flow represents a variance of 7.0% to issuer cash flows.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Fitch Leverage: The Fitch Ratings stressed LTV ratio is 99.7% and is below the average of 2013 Fitch-rated, 10-year, K-Series Freddie Mac deals, which averaged 112.8%. The Fitch stressed DSCR, at 1.15x, is above the average of 1.12x for the 2013 Fitch-rated, 10-year, K-series Freddie Mac deals.

Partial-Interest and Interest-Only Loans: Eight loans representing 8.7% of the pool are full-term interest only, and 39 loans representing 49.8% of the pool have partial-term interest-only components. Based on the loans' scheduled maturity balance, the pool is expected to amortize 14.34% during the term.

Credit Opinion Loan: The second largest loan in the pool (4.8%) has a Fitch credit opinion rating of 'BBB-sf' on a stand-alone basis. The loan is secured by Knickerbocker Plaza, a 578-unit high-rise apartment complex located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, within the New York MSA.

Loan Concentration: The top 10 loans constitute 33.3% of the pool, which is slightly lower than that of recent Freddie Mac transactions. The top loan in the pool, Villages at Preserve Crossing, constitutes 6.1% of the pool. The second largest loan is 4.8% of the pool.

Property-Type Concentration: Of the pool, 100% is backed by multifamily properties. Three loans (4.7%) are classified as student housing and one loan (0.09%) is classified as independent living.

Strong Origination Practices: All loans were originated by various sellers/originators according to Freddie Mac CME product guidelines and adhere to the originator best practices identified by Fitch. Freddie Mac multifamily loans had an average delinquency rate of 0.09% as of fourth-quarter 2013, compared with 6.48% on Fitch-rated CMBS multifamily loans as of the same period. Based on these program attributes, Fitch applies a programmatic credit to Freddie Mac transactions.

Collateral Quality: Of the pool, 38.9%, including five of the largest 10 loans, received property quality grades of 'B+' or better. Higher property quality grades result in a lower probability of loss in Fitch's multiborrower conduit model.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Fitch performed two model-based break-even analyses to determine the level of cash flow and value deterioration the pool could withstand prior to $1 of loss being experienced by the 'BBB+sf' and 'AAAsf' rated classes. Fitch found that the FREMF 2014-K38 pool could withstand a 43.8% decline in value (based on appraised values at issuance) and an approximately 22.1% decrease to the most recent actual cash flow prior to experiencing $1 of loss to the 'BBB+sf' rated class. Additionally, Fitch found that the pool could withstand a 48.2% decline in value and an approximately 28.2% decrease in the most recent actual cash flow prior to experiencing $1 of loss to any 'AAAsf' rated class.

Key Rating Drivers and Rating Sensitivities are further described in the presale report.

The Master Servicer is Keybank National Association, rated 'CMS1+' by Fitch. The Special Servicer is Wells Fargo, National Association rated 'CSS2-', by Fitch.
