Moving Housing Forward

Notable

Our progress in becoming a more competitive company continues to move housing forward. Over the last year, we:

  • Funded 1.5 million home loans
  • Helped another 71,000 struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure
  • Financed record levels of rental housing
  • Grew our post-2008 single–family book of business to 87% of the portfolio
  • Saved 823,000 refinancing homeowners an average of $2,400 in interest payments in the first year
  • Made home possible for 256,000 first–time homebuyers
  • Transferred a significant portion of credit risk on more than $735 billion of single–family and multifamily mortgages to date
  • Supported affordable housing for nearly 90% of the rental units we funded
  • Returned an additional $4.9 billion to taxpayers — bringing the total to date to more than $30 billion more than we requested in Treasury draws

Every day, we're proud to be moving housing forward.
