In Light of recent news, I would say GO FOR IT.
From the U.S. Senate Committee On Banking:
Mar 29, 2004 - Wall Street Journal - Senate Republicans rolled out a tough proposal to strengthen oversight of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, ratcheting up political pressure on the two federally chartered mortgage companies.

Has anyone had any experience with buying a Fannie Mae Reo’s. Especially one that needs a total gut rehab or better yet torn down. This one is listed with a realtor in my small town in a fairly decent neighborhood. It is set up as a upper/lower duplex but has some major problems. I know HUD does not like to discount their properties right away but will reduce their price over time if nobody buys it. Is Fannie Mae the same way? Thanks!!!

I’m aware of one in my small town not long ago, where FMV was around $70k, they listed it initially at $85k, dropped it to $70k after a couple weeks, and took $50k a few weeks later. It did not need any major work, so I would say it’s certainly possible.
