August 10, 2017Fannie Mae Announces Fourth Sale of Reperforming Loans
WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) today began marketing its fourth sale of reperforming loans as part of the company’s ongoing effort to reduce the size of its retained mortgage portfolio.
The pool of approximately 11,000 loans, approximately $2.5 billion in unpaid principal balance, is available for purchase by qualified bidders. This sale of reperforming loans is being marketed in collaboration with Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. Bids are due on September 6, 2017.
Reperforming loans are mortgages that were previously delinquent, but are performing again because payments on the mortgages have become current with or without the use of a loan modification. The terms of Fannie Mae's reperforming loan sale require the buyer to offer loss mitigation options designed to be sustainable to any borrower who may re-default within five years following the reperforming loan sale. In addition, buyers must report on loss mitigation outcomes. Any reporting requirements cease once a loan has been current for six consecutive months after the closing of the reperforming loan sale.
