This is not unusual. I refinanced with Entegra/First Citizens at the beginning of the year, and it was immediately bought out, even though the closing attorney swore up and down that First Citizens never sells them and it was good I was going that direction. Honestly I don't care as long as it doesn't cost me anything. In fact, the refi was initially through Entegra, who merged with First Citizens while we were doing paperwork, so it was initially Entegra after closing for like a day, then First citizens for a week, then Freddie/Fannie. Only reason I knew it had changed hands was because I got a letter in the mail saying it had been paid in full and I was like "I hope this is a fortunate error "
oh yeah for sure. Dealing with this one was a bit more of a pain in the ass though. Doesn't help I didn't get the new account number in time so I had to call to get it to make the payment, etc. Mine is Fannie now but serviced by dovenmuehle
