Freddie Mac can be described as one of the biggest organizations acting as buyers of house mortgages. This organization was founded in 1970 by Congress for supporting the rental housing. Currently Freddie Mac works as a rule on the secondary mortgage markets in the form of GSE (government sponsored enterprise).

Freddie Mac turns mortgages into its own foreclosure: it gets the mortgages, as a second step Freddie Mac pools them together and at the end it issues debt securities.

The Congress created Freddie Mac in order to reach certain goals, for instance:

- to regulate the money supply to provide the ability of financial bodies to provide loans;
- to regulate the level of price on housing markets;
- to preserve stable situation on mortgage market.

In order to reach the aims mentioned this organization operates with Freddie Mac foreclosure homes. Pay your attention on fact that Freddie Mac doesnt keep direct contact with its clients but purchases all loans on secondary market.

Freddie Mac became a leading organization in three main branches:

- giving a single family credit guarantees;
- financing multifamily credits;
- making investments, operating with Freddie Mac foreclosed homes and securitizing of mortgages.

Today Freddie Mac became the biggest company acting on the mortgage markets in the USA.

Find REO or short sale agent

To buy a REO house, the foreclosure which belongs to bank, one needs to choose the particular house he is interested in. This is the main reason to create detailed lists of REO homes available. As a rule dealing with foreclosure allows buyers to get a house, paying for it less, then normal market price.

But it happens, that prices in such kind of lists are too high or too low or maybe exactly right. If you buy real estate on foreclosure market for the first time, it is highly recommended to find a professional agent. Agents have priceless experience of dealing with REO and knowledge, which will help you to benefit from this operation. The agent should work having your interest as the highest priority.

How To Find A Professional REO agent? Try to find an agent who is busy, not one who has three or four client per year. If an agent is busy with plenty of deals it shows that he probably has a wide range of connections with sellers and buyers of REO property.
