While the industry continues to face extremely high delinquency rates, Freddie Mac owns a relatively small percentage of these problem loans. Slightly less than four percent of Freddie Mac loans are seriously delinquent, well below the industry average of approximately 9 percent.

Since the beginning of 2009, we have helped more than 350,000 struggling borrowers avoid foreclosure. Moreover, Freddie Mac has primarily operated in the conforming mortgage market - buying 30-and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages. While delinquencies are up across the board, (1 comments)

Some schools of thought believe that buyers will understand and appreciate that a seller wants to keep their home in pristine condition and will actually impress a (6 comments)
Following a sharp drop in the months immediately after expiration of the home buyer tax credit, pending home sales have modestly risen, according to the National Association of Realtors®. The Pending Home Sales Index,* a forward-looking indicator, rose 5.2 percent to 79.4 based on contracts signed in July from a downwardly revised 75.5 in June, but remains 19.1 percent below July 2009 when it was 98.1.
