Fannie Mae Discount MBS
Discounted Mortgage Backed Securities
Mortgage backed securities of this nature trade inside of the LIBOR rate, thus significantly reducing the cost of borrowing. Further, Fannie Mae allows “asset swaps” whereby a particular property can be swapped out for another asset of equal or greater value. This is especially advantageous to a portfolio owner who wants to retain the flexibility of selling a particular property without facing cost prohibitive prepayment penalties.
