Fannie, Freddie Foreclosure Prevention Tops 2.9 Million
WASHINGTON (10/8/13)--The more than 2.9 million foreclosure prevention actions taken since 2008 have helped 2.4 million borrowers stay in their homes, with 1.4 million of those borrowers receiving permanent loan modifications, the Federal Housing Finance Agency reported on Monday.

Foreclosure prevention actions addressed in the report include repayment plans, forbearance plans, charge-offs-in-lieu and loan modifications.

These and other details are contained in the agency's Foreclosure Prevention Report for the second quarter of 2013.

  • Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completed more than 247,000 foreclosure prevention actions in the first half of 2013, with 117,000 of these coming in the second quarter;

  • More than 29,000 short sales and deeds-in-lieu were completed in the second quarter;
