"We are offering these non-performing loans and this community impact pool to diverse investors in an attempt to expand the opportunities available to borrowers who are significantly delinquent on their mortgages to avoid foreclosure," said Joy Cianci, Fannie Mae's Senior Vice President for Single-Family, Special and Distressed Assets.
Bids are due on the four larger pools on March 7th and on the Community Impact Pool on March 21st.
Among other elements, terms of Fannie Mae's non-performing loan transactions require the buyer of the non-performing loans to pursue loss mitigation options that are sustainable for borrowers. In the event a foreclosure cannot be prevented, the owner of the loan must market the property to owner-occupants and non-profits exclusively before offering it to investors, similar to Fannie Mae's FirstLook® program.
Interested bidders are invited to register for future announcements, training and other information at http://www.fanniemae.com/portal/funding-the-market/npl/index.html. Fannie Mae will also post information about specific pools available for purchase on that page.
