Reminder: Freddie Mac Conventional Loan Program Changes - Timing Clarification
In our January 7 eNews we annouced that the pricing structure and required mortgage insurance for Freddie Mac loans would change for loans locked on or after March 1.

Minnesota Housing lenders may disregard U.S. Bank's announced loan purchase deadline of March 31, 2020 for loans locked under the old Freddie Mac pricing structure. For Minnesota Housing loans, the lock dates announced in our January 7 eNews determine applicable pricing and mortgage insurance requirements. See the January 7 eNews for full details on the changes.

Minnesota Housing will be closed on Monday, February 17 for Presidents' Day. Lenders will be unable to lock new loans between 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 14 and 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, February 18.
