Moving Housing Forward

As reported in our 2nd quarter financial results today, Freddie Mac is building a better company and a better mortgage finance system that is moving housing forward. The proof is in the numbers. Over the last 12 months, we've:

  • Funded about 1 in 4 home loans nationwide
  • Saved refinancing homeowners an average of $2,700 in interest payments in the first year
  • Helped 109,000 families avoid foreclosure
  • Supported affordable housing for 90% of the rental units we funded
  • Introduced a 3% low down payment option
  • Shifted risk to the private market through 111 innovative transactions
  • Provided $381 billion in mortgage funding to support the housing market

We've also returned $96.5 billion in dividends to U.S. taxpayers (exceeding the amount we received from the U.S. Treasury by $25.2 billion)*.

See how we are moving housing forward.

Hear from our CEO on Layton on our financial results call with the media.
