Washington, D.C. – The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released its second quarter 2020 Foreclosure Prevention and Refinance Report. The report shows that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) completed 252,014 foreclosure prevention actions in the second quarter of 2020, bringing to 4.68 million the number of troubled homeowners who have been helped during conservatorships. Of these actions, 3.98 million of the foreclosure prevention actions have helped troubled homeowners stay in their homes.
Other report highlights include:
The Enterprises' serious (90 days or more) delinquency rate increased to 2.58 percent at the end of the second quarter. This compared with 7.96 percent for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans, 3.98 percent for Veterans Affairs (VA) loans, and 4.26 percent for all loans (industry average).
FHFA's quarterly report also includes data on the Enterprises' mortgage performance, delinquency, home forfeiture actions and refinances by state. FHFA publishes the report data in an online, interactive Borrower Assistance Map on FHFA.gov.
