As of November 2009, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac implemented more than 405,000 trial and permanent loan modifications under the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), according to a third quarter Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) report. The agency also refinanced 4 million loans. The report details the actions each enterprise has taken to prevent foreclosures and help homeowners remain in their homes.

  • Fannie and Freddie had implemented 405,700 HAMP active trial and permanent loan modifications.

  • Foreclosure starts on loans owned or guaranteed by the GSEs declined 15 percent in the third quarter.

  • Loan modifications, excluding HAMP trial loan modifications, increased 14 percent compared with the second quarter.

  • Nearly half of loan modifications completed in the third quarter, excluding HAMP trial modifications, resulted in borrowers’ payments decreasing by more than 20 percent.

  • Short sales and deeds in lieu increased by 39 percent during the third quarter.

  • Loans 60 or more days delinquent increased nearly 20 percent during the third quarter to 1.6 million.
