short sale: Hawaii Act 48: Fannie Mae finds loophole in new Hawaii law and converts all foreclosures to "Judicial" - 06/16/11 08:50 AM
It sure didn’t take long for someone to find the first loophole in Hawaii's new Act 48 - designed to help homeowners in foreclosure. And wouldn’t you guess, its Mortgage Giant Fannie Mae –
