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.

Freddie Mac sold its largest ever portfolio of seriously delinquent loans from its portfolio back in March, getting rod of 5,398 deeply delinquent non-performing loans.

At the beginning of March, the Federal Housing Finance Agency stated the new requirements for sales of NPLs by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to make sure the loans go to capable mortgage servicers.
