Workout Prospector®

Analyze and Structure Foreclosure Alternatives with Confidence

Workout Prospector® helps you confidently analyze and structure foreclosure alternatives for your Freddie Mac loans so that you can reduce costs and often help borrowers become long-term homeowners. By entering a Freddie Mac loan number and other data, Workout Prospector will help you evaluate eligible borrowers for a modification under the Home Affordable Modification program (HAMP). If a borrower is ineligible for a HAMP modification, Workout Prospector helps you determine if another foreclosure alternative, such as a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, is feasible.

Key Features

  • Available online so you can access data from our database to help you structure foreclosure alternatives
  • Import/export capability lets users employ a batch process to transmit data with notification in a matter of minutes

Servicer Benefits

Workout Prospector can:

  • Expedite the analysis and delivery of HAMP modifications and other workouts
  • Help reduce credit losses from defaulted mortgages
  • Provide automatic property valuations
  • Import/export information in a batch process to transmit data on more than one potential workout at a time. You receive notification in a matter of minutes about the success of your transmission, and know whether any data was incorrect or missing.
  • Enable you, your outsourcing companies, and mortgage insurers to monitor and review all of your Freddie Mac-owned and non-Freddie Mac-owned mortgages in potential or actual workout status through online reports.
  • Allow Servicers’ authorized third-party service providers to access the application when conducting servicing activities on Freddie Mac-owned mortgages. We've introduced Guide Exhibit 86A, Workout Prospector User Agreement – Authorized Third Party, which Servicers and their service providers must complete when granting access to Workout Prospector to an authorized third party.

Borrower Benefits

Like our commitment to making affordable mortgage credit available in all communities, Freddie Mac is committed to helping borrowers sustain homeownership and avoid preventable losses. One of the ways we deliver on that commitment is by developing tools that enable Servicers to work effectively with borrowers who are behind on their mortgage payments. Workout Prospector helps you choose the most feasible foreclosure alternatives, which in turn helps more borrowers retain their homes and avoid foreclosure.
