2006 Annual Report

The complete report has been divided into four segments for easier online viewing and printing.

To our Stockholders:

2006 was a challenging year in the U.S. housing and mortgage markets, and Freddie Mac shared in those challenges. But even though housing weakened last year, Freddie Mac gained some strength.

Housing starts tumbled by 13 percent in 2006. Home purchases fell 10 percent. Mortgage originations dropped and home prices began to decline in a number of local markets. And the possibility of further weakness in the sector remains a leading concern for economic growth in 2007 – particularly if accompanied by widespread loan defaults or a severe tightening of credit standards.

At this writing, defaults and late payments have remained relatively low on prime mortgages, which are made to lower-risk borrowers and account for the lion’s share of home loans. But late payments have risen swiftly over the past year on subprime mortgages, those made to borrowers having spottier credit histories and posing higher risks. Read more from Richard Syron.
