Daily Business Review published a very interesting article today entitled “Special Report: Condo Lending”. It provides a list of the top five banks who have filed the most foreclosure actions from January 1, 2007 to May 4, 2007 in South Florida. Below is that list:
The most revealing part is that these banks have no reason to be overly concerned. In most cases, the loans were repackaged as mortgage-backed securities and sold to Wall Street investors. Public records may reveal the banks as the possessor of these loans, because their names are still associated with the notes, but it is the investors who will bear the monetary loss due to the risky underwriting practices of these banks. In fact, the banks actually make additional money by charging fees to the investors by acting as custodians in managing the foreclosure proceedings for them. Helluva a gig! They’re making money on the front-end and back-end!
