Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America - Research Analyst

The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America ("NACA") is a non-profit, community advocacy and homeownership organization. NACA’s primary goal is to build strong, healthy neighborhoods in urban and rural areas nationwide through affordable homeownership. NACA has made the dream of homeownership a reality for thousands of working people by counseling them honestly and effectively, enabling even those with poor credit to purchase a home or refinance a predatory loan with far better terms than those provided even in the prime market.

Investing in working people. The NACA homeownership program is our answer to the huge subprime and predatory lending industry. NACA has conclusively shown that when working people get the benefit of a prime rate loan, they can resolve their financial problems, make their mortgage payments and become prime borrowers. NACA’s track record of helping people who have credit problems become homeowners or refinance out of a predatory loan debunks the myth that high rates and fees are necessary to compensate for their "credit risk."

Started in 1988, NACA has a tremendous track record of successful advocacy against predatory and discriminatory lenders as well as providing the best mortgage program in America with $10 billion in funding commitments. NACA is the largest housing services organization in the country and is rapidly expanding by growing its existing 30+ offices, headquartered in Boston, MA, opening many new offices nationwide, and expanding the services it offers its membership. NACA’s confrontational community organizing and unprecedented mortgage program have set the national standard for assisting low- and moderate-income people to achieve the dream of homeownership.

Taking Refi Pitch to Mortgage Investors
Posted: 5/19/2008
American Banker - May 16, 2008
by Kate Berry

Of the numerous strategies that have been proposed for stemming the foreclosure tide, many involving Federal Housing Administration refinancings, few if any start with the investors holding troubled mortgages.

That is where National Bank Of Kansas City has been looking for opportunities to boost FHA volume. Since January the $963 million-asset Overland Park, Kan., unit of Ameri-National Corp. has been approaching noteholders with a proposition: Identify loans in your portfolio that you would like to unload, and the bank will solicit the borrowers to refinance.

The loans it targets are current but typically are adjustable-rate mortgages whose teaser rate is soon to reset. "These loans might have a high possibility of default or foreclosure, and the noteholder would rather get them refinanced," said Todd Geiman, an executive vice president at the bank's mortgage division.

With the secondary market for such loans moribund, helping borrowers refinance is one of the few ways investors can cash out. And for National Bank Of Kansas City, which has seven branches in three states but lends nationally using leads purchased from IAC/InterActiveCorp's LendingTree LLC, the program is another way to generate government and conforming loan volume.

"There are a lot of holders of mortgage notes that would like to get them off their books," Mr. Geiman said. "Most of the people we're partnering with cannot fund mortgages on their own, so they're looking for a partner."

Since January, National Bank Of Kansas City has refinanced 2,000 to 2,500 borrowers through its Mortgage Recovery Program; 60% were put into new FHA loans, and the rest were put into Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans.
