Reperforming loans are defined as mortgages that are no longer in delinquency because payments on the mortgages have become current, with or without loan modification. The GSE’s reperforming loan sales require the buyer to offer loss mitigation options designed to be sustainable to any borrower who may re-default within five years following the reperforming loan sale. Bids for Fannie Mae’s fourth reperforming loan sales are due on September 6. For more information, click here .
