New business climbed to a nearly three-year high at the Federal National Mortgage Association, while delinquency fell to an eight-year low.

As of June 30 of this year, the Washington-based

The total increased compared to the end of the previous month, when it stood at $3.1009 trillion, but fell from $3.1101 trillion one year prior.

Fannie Mae provided the details in its Monthly Summary June 2016.
