Delinquency, Portfolio & Secondary Volume fall at Freddie

Home loan delinquency has declined four out of the last five months at Freddie Mac. Also lower were secondary marketing activity and the balance of its massive mortgage portfolio.

In its July monthly operational summary, the secondary lender said purchases and issuances were $28.4 billion during July, falling from $30.9 billion a month earlier and $44.1 billion a year earlier.

Freddie reported year-to-date volume of $209.4 billion.

The total mortgage portfolio at the McLean, Va.-based company declined to $2.2147 trillion as of July 31 from $2.2219 trillion at the end of June. Freddie’s portfolio was down around $20 billion from July 2009.

Components of the latest portfolio balance included an $0.7259 trillion mortgage investment portfolio and $1.4888 trillion in participation certificates that are outstanding.

Residential delinquency of at least 90 days moved lower last month. The delinquency rate was 3.89 percent, falling from 3.96 percent in June. In fact, late payments on Freddie’s home loans have been down each month since February except for May — when the rate was unchanged from April. But last month’s level of late payments was still higher than 3.06 percent on July 31, 2009.

Multifamily delinquency, which the government controlled enterprise reports based on 60-day lates, rose to 0.30 percent from June’s 0.28 percent. The delinquency rate on apartment loans was just 0.12 percent a year ago.
