Freddie Mac Releases Additional Loan-Level Data


On March 21, Freddie Mac released historical loan-level credit performance data on a portion of the fully amortizing 30-year, fixed-rate single-family mortgages it purchased during the past 13 years. The data-set is comprised of 35 loan-level data elements, including credit score, loan purpose, actual unpaid principal balances, and repurchase flag, and covers delinquencies of up to and including 180-days. Specific performance information in the dataset includes voluntary prepayments, repurchases and loan modifications, and loans that were short sales, deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure, third party sales, and REOs. Further, the release includes publication of the (i) name of the seller that delivered each loan at the time Freddie Mac purchased or securitized the loan, and (ii) the name of the servicer as of the earlier loan termination or the active servicer as of June 2012. Freddie Mac plans to update the data each quarter and may in the future include more recent productions, other mortgage product types, and additional data elements.
