Freddie Mac's single-family serious delinquency rate declined to 1.36% in November 2015, reaching its lowest level since October 2008. 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 serious delinquency rate for single-family homes was 3.57% at the end of the third quarter 2015, according the latest available data from the Mortgage Bankers Association's National Delinquency Survey.
