FHFA Keeps REO Pilot Program Moving Forward

In February, the Federal Housing Finance Agency started a pilot program to solicit bids from qualified investors to buy 2,500 single-family Fannie Mae foreclosed homes. The sale pools were offered in geographically concentrated areas around the country. Investors were thoroughly vetted in a rigorous evaluation process on several factors, including financial strength, asset management experience, property management experience and experience in that geographic area. The winning bidders have been chosen and transactions are slated to close in the third quarter. Qualified bidder interest was high. “FHFA undertook this initiative to help stabilize communities and home values in areas hard-hit by the foreclosure crisis,” said Edward J. DeMarco, Acting Director of FHFA. “As conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, we believe this pilot program will assist us in achieving our objectives and help to maximize the benefit to taxpayers. We are pleased with the response from the market and look forward to closing transactions in the near future.”
