Sacramento Short Sale Agent Reports GSE’s to participate in HAFA. This will rewrite the Short Sale Definition. Since it’s first roll-out in April, HAFA has already made a significant impact on short sale processing for the small number of homeowners actually able to qualify for the HAFA Government Program. The biggest question from all involved including homeowners, servicers, agents etc. was “why aren’t the GSE’s (Government Sponsored Entities) involved with HAFA?” Well now, The GSE’s have their own HAFA Government Program.
You see, When the Treasury’s Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program rolled out in early April, officials explained that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans (over 70% of the Nations Mortgages) were not eligible – an interesting omission considering Fannie and Freddie are fully operated by our government and under full government control. These entities are supposed to be the pillars of strength supporting the administrations response to out housing crisis, yet they weren’t even participating in the latest and greatest government anti foreclosure program.
When asked about how that could be, both GSE’s stated they would be rolling out their own HAFA guidelines soon. Well they have done so finally and it looks as if the short sale definition is finally going to change! …the deadline to implement is just around the corner.
Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac encouraged their servicers to begin implementing the new HAFA procedures “immediately.”But by August 1, 2010, all Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac servicers must have incorporated HAFA into their operations and so soon, nearly all mortgages will be offering HAFA solutions to eligible borrowers. The program is effective through December 31, 2012.

Just like the original HAFA program, Fannie and Freddie’ HAFA program will pay financial incentives to both servicers and borrowers who make use of a short sale or a deed-in-lieu to avoid a foreclosure on a HAMP-eligible loan. Servicers will receive $2,200 for every HAFA short sale and $1,500 for every HAFA deed-in-lieu completed. Borrowers are entitled to an incentive of a $3,000 HAFA payment to assist with relocation expenses.
