    NPL Market & The Distressed Residential Mortgage Summit - Andrews, CEO DBI

    in Finance

    According to a recent article in HousingWire, the recent push by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to offload pools of non-performing loans sales will increase the depth of the distressed residential mortgage market, which could have positive implications for banks seeking to sell their own non-performing loans.

    Fitch analysts believe that residential mortgage NPLs are far less of a threat to the GSEs and banks than they were five years ago, but note that 90-plus day past-due loans are still elevated relative to historical averages and relative to their contributions to total NPL levels.

    Analysts believe this implies that both the GSEs and the banks remain motivated sellers of NPLs.

    According to Fitch’s data, FDIC-insured banks held a total of approximately $61 billion in 90-plus days past due one-to-four family mortgages at the end of 2014 compared to Fannie and Freddie who held about $86 billion of 90-plus day delinquent loans.

    These conditions make a robust NPL market a real possibility for the balance 2015 and beyond.

    Joining me today to discuss Distressed Mortgage Trading is Peter Andrews, Founder & CEO of Dreambuilder Investments, a private investment firm specializing in the acquisition, management and liquidation of defaulted residential mortgages. 

    Peter is responsible for management of the firm’s trading activities and the continuous design and development of Dreambuilder’s proprietary, asset management platform.

    Peter is also Chairman of the upcoming Distressed Resdiential Mortgage Summit to be held in New York on Sept 30th through October 1st.

    Capital Raise For The Distressed NPL & RE Investor - Shetty, Tremony Capital

    in Finance

    According to a recent article published by Bloomberg, Oaktree Capital has raised $7 billion for a distressed debt fund as it prepares for the economic recovery to falter.

    For most investors, a capital raise the size of OakTree is simply out of the question.  However, there are still many opportunities in the NPL and distressed real estate space for middle lower market investors especially as FHA, FNMA and Freddie increase their NPL sales creating secondary markets for smaller investors.  Many middle and lower market funds are in active capital raise mode as we head into the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year.

    Joining the broadcast to discuss the capital raise process is Bina Shetty, Head of Strategic Advisory at Tremony Capital.

    Bina Shetty joined Tremony Capital, as the Head of Strategic Advisory with a mission to expand Tremony’s third-party strategic advisory capabilities for lower middle market financial institutions and real estate focused businesses. Prior to joining Tremony, Bina was a Managing Director at Milestone Advisors, a boutique investment bank that exclusively focused on middle markets financial services clients across the depository institution, distressed real estate, specialty finance and financial technology sectors.

    HUD Single Family Loan Sale Non Profit Webinar - Part II – Panel Discussion

    in Finance

    HUD has announced the latest sale in the Distressed Asset Stabilization Program (DASP) consisting of one offering date with National Pools and Neighborhood Stabilization Outcome (NSO) Pools offered on November 18, 2015.  HUD's NSO offerings will include one pool for which only non-profit bidders or units of local government are eligible to bid.

    HUD announced significant changes in DASP back in April in order to achieve better outcomes for borrowers. Under the new rules, loan servicers are required to delay foreclosure on a home for a year and evaluate all borrowers facing foreclosure for participation in the government's HAMP or a similar loss mitigation program.

    The improvements to the NSO sales portion of DASP include giving non-profits a first look at vacant properties, allowing purchasers to re-sell notes to non-profits, and offering a pool of loans for non-profits only.

    On October 21, 2015, HUD produced a webinar that was geared towards non-profits outlining the process of obtaining bidder approval, reporting requirements and required outcomes.  The webinar featured Neighborhood Stabilization Capital Management, an investment firm dedicated to working with HUD to promote the DASP program and non-profit inclusion.
