Freddie Mac's single-family serious delinquency rate declined to 1.73% at March 31, 2015, nearing its lowest level since December 2008 (1.72%).
This is good news, meaning that fewer and fewer homeowners with mortgages backed by Freddie Mac are 90-days past due on their mortgage payments or in foreclosure.
This rate is substantially below the rate for the entire U.S. mortgage market, whose seriously delinquent rate was 4.52% at the end of 2014, according the latest available data from the Mortgage Bankers Association's National Delinquency Survey.
