Fannie Mae announced Fortress and Goldman Sachs (GS) as the winning bidders for its third non-performing loan sale of approximately 7,000 loans totaling $1.24 billion in unpaid principal balance, divided among three pools.
The sale was first announced back in October in order to reduce the number of severely delinquent loans Fannie holds and provide borrowers with additional options to avoid foreclosure.
“The non-performing loans included in this sale are severely delinquent and despite our ongoing efforts to offer loss mitigation on these loans, they remain non-performing,” said Joy Cianci, Fannie Mae’s senior vice president for credit portfolio management.
“We are offering non-performing loan sales to investors and their servicers who can help borrowers avoid foreclosure wherever possible by applying a wider range of loss mitigation options than we have available,” added Cianci.
Fortress (New Residential Investment Corp.) won the first and third pools and Goldman Sachs won the second pool, with the transactions expected to close Dec. 17, 2015.
Credit Suisse Securities, JPMorgan Securities, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and the Williams Capital Group L.P. marketed the sale of the non-performing loans.
