16:10 EDTFMCCFreddie Mac further reduces seriously delinquent loans from portfolio
Freddie Mac announced it sold via auction 3,577 deeply delinquent non-performing loans from its mortgage investment portfolio on July 28th, with an aggregate unpaid principal balance of $591M. The transaction is expected to settle in September, 2015 and the sale is part of Freddie Mac's Standard Pool Offerings. These loans have been delinquent for approximately three years, on average. Given the deep delinquency status of the loans, the borrowers have likely been evaluated previously for or are already in various stages of loss mitigation, including modification or other alternatives to foreclosure, or are in foreclosure. Mortgages that were previously modified and subsequently became delinquent comprise approximately 28% of the aggregate pool balance.
