Whole Loan Sales
Non-performing Loan Sales
Fannie Mae's sales of non-performing loans, which are part of the Federal Housing Finance Agency's 2015 Conservatorship Scorecard, are intended to reduce the number of seriously-delinquent loans that Fannie Mae owns, to help stabilize neighborhoods and to help meet the portfolio reduction targets required under the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement with the United States Treasury.
On March 2, 2015, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced guidelines for these sales to encourage broad buyer participation and provide safeguards for borrowers. These guidelines require the buyers of non-performing loans to offer loan modifications to borrowers and provide foreclosure alternatives whenever possible. If foreclosure cannot be prevented, property sales to owner-occupants and non-profit agencies must be prioritized.
Fannie Mae will work to sell these loans to investors, nonprofits and public sector organizations. The company anticipates bringing pools of loans to the market on a regular basis. Fannie Mae intends to offer a mix of both larger and smaller pools that may be more attractive to nonprofits, smaller investors and minority- and women-owned businesses.
Reperforming Loan Sales
On October 11, 2016, Fannie Mae began marketing its first sale of reperforming loans as part of the company's ongoing effort to reduce the size of its retained mortgage portfolio as indicated above. Reperforming loans are mortgage loans that were previously delinquent, but are performing again because payments on the mortgage loan have become current with or without the use of a loan modification plan.
