The GSE reported late Thursday afternoon that it acquired $56 billion in mortgages in September, down from $68 billion in the month prior.
As previously reported, Freddie purchased $28 billion in loans in September, down 21.5% from August.
Fannie’s September monthly summary report shows that it made new commitments to purchase $53 billion in loans from its seller/servicers, up $2 billion from the prior month, which might indicate loan production is stabilizing.
The GSE also issued $53 billion in MBS in September, down 20% from the prior month.
Meanwhile, the serious delinquency rate on Fannie's guaranteed single-family portfolio fell six basis points from August to 2.5% in September.
A year ago, Fannie had a 3.4% serious delinquency rate.
