Worth the Wait! Fannie & Freddie HAFA Programs

Now we are getting somewhere.  Forgive me if I step on some toes, but even a high ranking official of the Treasury publically admitted, "We blew it, and started at the wrong end."  However, a few trillion dollars later, the Feds actually placed it's incredible weight (pun intended)  behind something that actually helps the man on the street!
As reported June 2nd, 2010 in Distressed Property Institute by cdpe :

"Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac just announced the introduction of their own HAFA programs. They’re both scheduled to be implemented by August 1, 2010, and the programs are very similar to HAFA in that they simplify and streamline the use of short sales and deed-in-lieu (DIL) options and use similar forms and timelines. In addition, like HAFA, the program expires December 31, 2012. However, some of the major differences offered by the new Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac HAFA programs include, but are not limited to:

- Both institutions will pay the servicer a $2,200 incentive fee for successful short sales
- Both institutions will pay the servicer a $1,500 incentive fee for all successful DILs
- The Deed for Lease (D4L) is available for borrowers who request and are approved to remain in the property following a successful DIL.

AND, there is no charge to the Seller but all costs will be borne by the institution!

Specific details on these programs can be found by visiting the following links: eFannieMae.com and Freddie Mac Bulletin".

There are so many benefits built into this program that I encourage you to set up a no obligation meeting.  And, pass this Blog on to your friends and family members who may themselves be facing these difficult times without knowing there ARE OPTIONS! 

They may be late to the dance, so what's a few trillion between friends, but I for one am glad to see that we can SAVE FAMILIES FROM FORECLOSURE!
