Freddie Mac employs multiple strategies to maintain optimal loan quality and data transparency:
Underwriting standards – captured by Freddie Mac Loan AdvisorSM – position loans to meet requirements for eligibility, documentation and representation and warranties. Loan quality control practices – including post-close credit review and the underwriting defects repurchase process – position loans to perform at or above expected levels. Robust seller/servicer management – including in-house quality control and performance monitoring – provides that quality control is maintained for loans sold and/or serviced by third-parties.
