Freddie Mac's single-family serious delinquency rate declined to 1.58% at May 31, 2015, nearing its lowest level since November 2008 (1.52%).

This rate is substantially below the rate for the entire U.S. mortgage market, whose seriously delinquent rate was 4.24% at the end of the first quarter of 2015, according the latest available data from the Mortgage Bankers Association's National Delinquency Survey.
