Freedie and Mae owes more than 2,000 Foreclosed Homes in the Bay Area
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have turn out to be a significant residential owners in the Bay Area’s toughest Foreclosure hit neighborhoods, many thanks to the mortgage disaster.
Based on information supplied by local bay area experts, the two government controlled loan organizations now own over 2,230 foreclosed properties in the Bay Area, value believed to be around $500 million. Numerous homes covered in junk, are blighted, unkept lawns, junk cars, damaged paint and shattered windows.
In between the two, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, own the majority of California home mortgages in excess of over 60% and compared with most of the biggest banking institutions — will not agree to lower the balances on mortgages for debtors who owes far more on their houses than they are worth.
The East Bay of the Bay Area CA accounted for almost 60 percent of all of the homes possessed by the disorganized Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Most of these homes are in hard hit cities such as Oakland (371), the bankrupted city of Vallejo (160), San Jose (137), and Richmond (110).
