1 Citi REO Strategy & Community Relations September 15, 2009

2 Office of Homeownership Preservation | Copyright © 2009 Citigroup Inc. 2 Background  Industry wide, REO Departments are responsible for marketing and managing a company’s Real Estate Owned (REO) inventory effectively. They work to protect the company from legal and reputational risk, and mitigate losses by disposing of the properties expediently, and for as close to market value as possible  Generally, a portion of the REO inventory is serviced for third party investors per Pool and Servicing Agreements  Servicers can sometimes rationalize a donation or a substantial discount by documenting any cost savings from a disposition of the asset. For example, by transferring an asset to a non-profit partner or a municipality, there may be savings on commission, taxes, or property maintenance and preservation  Servicers can receive CRA consideration for the difference between the property’s fair market value and the sales price  Many non profits and municipalities interested in developing an REO acquisition program need technical assistance and financial support to build capacity to implement a program  Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP-HERA) funds can be used for acquisition and rehabilitation of REO’s, land banking, demolition and redevelopment of blighted structures, and establishment of financing mechanisms for purchase and redevelopment of REO’s  The Industry- government, nonprofits and servicers, continue to partner to find solutions to stabilize communities and diminish the impact of foreclosure

The First Look Program is designed to provide partners with the opportunity to consider an asset, prior to it being listed via typical mean, with negligible impact to current operations. It is also designed to be implemented in an open and transparent manner to promote quick and efficient transactions and comply with the housing bill. Implementation schedule:  Pilot in December in Minneapolis and St. Paul  Now deployed in several metropolitan areas across the nation  Over 100 properties offered through NCST to nonprofits and municipalities June 2009 – 3 properties donated in Detroit to U-Snap Bac
