“We are committed to reducing Fannie Mae’s holdings of [NPLs] in a responsible way,” says Joy Cianci, senior vice president of credit portfolio management for Fannie Mae, in a release. “We continue to work with struggling homeowners to prevent foreclosures whenever we can. This sale of seriously delinquent loans can create additional opportunities for borrowers to avoid foreclosure while reducing the impact of these loans for Fannie Mae and the taxpayers.”
