MountainView Servicing Group is overseeing the sale of a Fannie Mae mortgage-servicing right portfolio with a total unpaid principal balance of $759,526,511, which features a weighted average original FICO of 725 and 61% HARP servicing.

National Asset Direct Inc., a purchaser of distressed residential assets and loans, said Wednesday afternoon that it had completed the purchase of a portfolio of approximately $34 million of seasoned sub-performing and non-performing first lien residential mortgages from an undisclosed top-tier bank.
