Freddie's Monthly Business Best This Year

New post-crisis low for mortgage delinquency

Sept. 25, 2018

By Mortgage Daily staff

Monthly secondary mortgage volume ascended to the highest level this year at the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. Serious mortgage delinquency, meanwhile, descended to a fresh new post-crisis low.

McLean, Virginia-based Freddie Mac's total mortgage portfolio was $2.1472 trillion as of Aug. 31, according to its Monthly Volume Summary: August 2018 released Tuesday.

Last month's book of business was comprised of a $0.2345 trillion mortgage-related investment portfolio and $1.9127 trillion in outstanding mortgage-related securities and other guarantees.

Freddie's total book of business was $2.1365 trillion at the end of the preceding month and $2.0534 trillion on the same date in 2017.

Last month's purchases and issuances came in at $38.413 billion -- the strongest volume of any month this year. Although secondary activity was better than $32.721 billion in July, business slowed from $40.566 billion in August 2017.

During the eight months ended Aug. 31, purchases and issuances totaled $254.304 billion.

At 0.73 percent, single-family 90-day delinquency was the lowest it's been since it was 0.71 percent in January 2008. The serious delinquency rate was 0.78 percent a month prior and 0.84 percent a year prior.

No change for the fourth consecutive month left 60-day multifamily delinquency at 0.01 percent. The rate was 0.03 percent as of Aug. 31, 2017.
