Fannie, Freddie MBS Activity Decreases Again in May

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in May resumed a more than year-long streak of declines with monthly decreases in the volume of single-family mortgages securitized by the two GSEs, according to a new Inside The GSEs analysis. Fannie and Freddie issued $44.8 billion in single-family mortgage-backed securities in May, a 1.3 percent decrease from the previous month. April’s $45.4 billion issuance proved to be just a brief reversal to the longer trend.

With rates higher this year, there has been talk of lenders liberalizing their underwriting standards in an effort to increase volume and make up for lower refis.

Do you think your shop will loosen standards over the coming three months?

Yes, but not by much.


Yes, by a lot.


Yes and, heck, we may even do non-QM lending.


No, not at all.


No and we may even tighten credit.
