WASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fannie Mae (OTC Bulletin Board: FNMA) today announced that The Community Loan Fund of New Jersey, Inc., an affiliate of New Jersey Community Capital, a non-profit community development financial institution, is the winning bidder on the housing agency's fifth Community Impact Pool of non-performing loans. The transaction is expected to close on November 22, 2016, and includes 120 loans secured by properties located in the Miami, Florida area with an unpaid principal balance (UPB) of approximately $20.3 million.
In collaboration with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and The Williams Capital Group, L.P., Fannie Mae began marketing this Community Impact Pool to potential bidders on August 10, 2016.
The loan pool awarded in this most recent transaction includes:
- 120 loans with an aggregate unpaid principal balance of $20,280,326.61; with an average loan size of $169,003; with a weighted average note rate of 5.23%; with a weighted average delinquency of 42 months; with a weighted average broker's price opinion loan-to-value ratio of 111%.
The cover bid price for this Community Impact Pool is 56.6% of UPB (52.4% of Broker Price Opinion - BPO).
On April 14, 2016, the Federal Housing Finance Agency announced additional enhancements to its requirements for sales of non-performing loans by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that build on requirements originally announced in March 2015. The additional requirements, which apply to this Fannie Mae non-performing loan sale, encourage sustainable modifications that have the potential to give more borrowers the opportunity for home retention by requiring evaluation of borrowers with underwater loans for modifications that may include principal and/or arrearage forgiveness; forbidding "walking away" from vacant homes; and establishing more specific proprietary loan modification standards.
