Cash, Servicing-Retained Execution

Increase your profitability while maintaining your servicing asset

Freddie Mac's cash, servicing-retained execution provides you with a highly competitive secondary marketing solution that supports your borrower relationship strategies. This cash execution helps you increase your profitability for fixed-rate mortgages, while maintaining your servicing asset. When you sell loans for cash, you get the benefits of a securities execution without the additional considerations of a swap, and you receive top securities-market prices for your loans.

You can sell one loan at a time through a best efforts contract, or many loans through a large mandatory contract based on your individual business needs. In addition, you can sell both premium and discount mortgages as long as their note rates are at or below our posted maximum eligible coupon. You will receive premium prices for your premium mortgages and you can sell the entire mortgage yield (less your servicing spread) since there is no par cap.
