Moving Housing Forward

Our work to build a better Freddie Mac and a better housing finance system continues to move housing forward. In 2015, we:

  • Funded one in every four home loans
  • Helped another 94,000 struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure
  • Became the largest source of funding in the multifamily market
  • Grew our post-2008 single-family book of business to 84% of the portfolio
  • Saved 910,000 refinancing homeowners an average of $2,600 in interest payments in the first year
  • Supported affordable housing for 90% of the rental units we funded  
  • Made home possible for more than 230,000 first-time homebuyers
  • Returned an additional $5.5 billion to taxpayers
