Podcast: How Loss Share Agreements Impact Distressed Asset Deal Flow

BankProspector screenshot of a typical bank's REO reportThis is the second in a 3-part podcast interview series with John McCaffrey an SVP and Managing Director with REDC (Auction.com) and a BankProspector subscriber. In the first of the 3 we talked about the non-performing loan sales process at auction.com and the steps that John’s team goes through in bringing non-performing loans to the market.

In this episode John (a former Wall St banker and mortgage backed securities trader and investor) talks with me about the FDIC Loss Sharing Agreements and how these agreements will affect the flow and sale of distressed assets to the market. We discuss:

  • The ins-and-outs of what the loss share agreements say
  • How loss sharing agreements will affect the flow of distressed assets to the market
  • Some tips on how to satisfy the FDIC and get assets covered under Loss Share’s sold

This episode runs for about 20 minutes.

As I mentioned in a previous post there are new reporting requirements that demand that banks with loss sharing agreements report in detail on the assets covered. We’re anticipating having all of that ‘loss share’ data available in BankProspector within the next 7-10 days.

  1. Thank you for this informative session on LSAs. We are in the real estate auction business as well and have clients under LSA. It is very difficult to get these banking clients to agree to the auction upfront, but after listing a property traditionally for a period of time they begin to open to the idea. As mentioned in the cast, it really is a case to case basis.
