Get Into a Home This June

This National Homeownership Month we're celebrating borrowers and lenders as we reimagine the mortgage experience to make homeownership possible. That means working together with our industry partners to better understand the hopes and fears, the characteristics and challenges of current and future borrowers, with one goal in mind: to turn homebuyers' dreams into reality.

We help our lender partners and borrowers navigate the mortgage process to:

  • Strengthen sustainable homeownership: Through our Borrower Help Centers and national Network, we work with trusted national nonprofit intermediaries to prepare prospective buyers for responsible homeownership and  help struggling borrowers with Freddie Mac-owned mortgages avoid foreclosure.
  • Overcome barriers: Our CreditSmart®program, a multilingual financial education curriculum, is designed to help you understand your credit score, make sound financial decisions and map out steps to attain and sustain homeownership. We've also partnered with Down Payment Resources to help you evaluate your finances and explore available assistance programs in your area.
  • Improve borrowers' experience: We're working with financial technology companies (fintechs) like LoanBeam to automate and simplify the mortgage process helping borrowers save time and money.

Be sure to visit  My Home by Freddie Mac® to learn more about homeownership and follow our blog series, Why Homeownership Matters: The Triple Bottom Line, in celebration of National Homeownership Month.
