From a wholesale investor's standpoint, what are the chances of Fannie Mae selling at a wholesale price?

Asked by barbara, Chicago, IL Mon Mar 25, 2013

I notice that many of their properties are listed extremely high.

The ones I have been showing are extremely low and getting multiple bids. These are getting fewer and fewer as the many buyers are keeping the inventory moving. Some of their homes seem to be based on last years low prices and some on next years increased prices.

Fannie Mae is not a wholesaler so I wouldn't except wholesale pricing from them. Their prices are often higher this year as they offer very generous and easy financing terms.

Your best bet for value investing at this point is the short sale route. Takes more time than a REO but can give you the better equity positions than the Fannie homes can. Many of my investor clients are looking at this avenue since Fannie and Freddie are really pushing for owner occupants.

Do you have the ability to purchase 30,50, 100 homes at once? IF so, you should contact Fannie Mae directly and see if they would entertain such an offer.

Tina is absolutely correct. Fannie Mae is not a wholesaler. At any time if Fannie Mae has foreclosed on a home they will have a broker determine the BPO price (Brokers Price Opinion). The broker will take several factors into consideration when helping Fannie Mea set the price on each individual property.
