Cash, Servicing-Released Execution

Maximize the value of your servicing asset and have more cash available to fund more mortgages

Freddie Mac's cash, servicing-released execution offers you the option to sell one, a few, or many loans for cash and release your servicing to improve your liquid assets and fund more mortgages. When mortgage servicing is not your core capability, this competitive cash execution, available for eligible Sellers, allows you to maximize your servicing-released premiums for a variety of mortgage products and financing structures and is available only to Sellers that Freddie Mac has approved to use this execution. You can select either a mandatory or best efforts servicing-released commitment option based on your individual business or borrowers' needs. With the servicing-released execution, you sell your mortgage asset and servicing asset in one transaction, and receive an all-in cash price that includes the servicing-released premium. Find out how to get started selling loans for cash, servicing-released.
