Annual Housing Report - 2017 (covers activities 1/2016 – 12/2016)

Published: 10/30/2017

This Annual Housing Report (Report) describes the affordable housing activities of the Enterprises during 2016 and meets the reporting requirements of the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992, as amended (Safety and Soundness Act). The Report begins by describing FHFA’s preliminary review of the Enterprises’ 2016 housing goals performance.

The Report also includes information about the distribution of single-family loans by race/ethnicity, gender, and census tract median income. In addition, the Report includes a breakdown of the single-family mortgage product-types purchased by each Enterprise, as well as information on mortgage payment type (e.g., fixed-rate or adjustable-rate mortgage), loan-to-value ratios, and credit scores for 2016.

The Report describes the status of several other activities related to affordable housing, including FHFA’s Duty to Serve rule. The Report also describes the affordable housing allocations made by each Enterprise, as well as FHFA’s efforts to survey the mortgage markets and release loan-level data submitted by the Enterprises to the public. Finally, the Report discusses subprime, nontraditional, and higher-priced mortgage loans.
