HPE creates limited partnerships with capital partners for the purpose of either negotiating trades or participating in auctions sponsored by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA—the conservator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac). By pairing with “socially conscious” private capital partners, HPE has been able to access assets to the advantage of hard hit communities—resulting in re-performing loans and other neighborhood stabilization outcomes.

Home Preservation Exchange (HPE) is a nonprofit organized for the purpose of right-sizing the housing market and stabilizing neighborhoods by promoting nonprofit/for profit partnerships and together leveraging private capital to acquire nonperforming loans (NPL’s) and bank-owned homes (REO’s). The HPE model is attractive because it is sustainable and scalable; it relies on private capital to acquire assets and nonprofits to convert assets into preserving home ownership or creating home ownership for new low/moderate income individuals.
