In an article on USA Today - "Fannie Mae gets tough on "Strategic" mortgage defaults" - the following caught my eye:
Starting in October, Fannie Mae says, strategic defaulters will be disqualified for new Fannie Mae-backed loans for seven years after their foreclosures. Fannie also says it will go to court where it can to recoup outstanding mortgage debt from borrowers who strategically default.
Interesting, particularly given Fannie Mae's new policy of declining to postpone Trustee Sales when the Short Sale contract on the Borrower's property is secured less than 30 days prior to the Trustee Sale.
A mixed message from Fannie Mae - whouda thunkit? Don't do a Strategic Default - because we'll penalize you if you do - but - if you do the responsible thing and attempt a Short Sale - we'll foreclose anyway!
The moral of the story - don't wait until it's too late!
