Buying a home from Fannie Mae

About Fannie Mae Homes:

Fannie Mae works with all of its partners to help homeowners prevent and avoid foreclosure; however, sometimes it is unavoidable. When foreclosures occur on mortgages in which Fannie Mae is the investor, it works to sell properties in a timely manner in order to minimize the impact on the community.

What kinds of properties are available in the Fannie Mae HomePath database?

Fannie Mae’s HomePath database includes only properties that are owned by Fannie Mae. There is a wide selection of homes, including single-family homes, condominiums, and town houses—located in a variety of neighborhoods. The number, types and the sales prices of the homes that are offered for sale may vary substantially. Many of these homes are relatively new; however, older homes are offered in some areas. Some homes may require repairs.  If you are thinking of buying a Fannie Mae owned home, you should carefully research the property and neighborhood, and the financing products available to you.
