declining ever since hitting a high point of 5.59 percent in February of last year.

Fannie Mae says servicers completed modifications on 16,419 of its loans in May. For the first five months of the year, loan modifications total 84,133.

Both Fannie Mae and ""Freddie Mac"":http://www.freddiemac.com have announced that they are ""aligning their servicing guidelines"":http://www.dsnews.com/articles/gses-issue-new-servicing-guidelines-for-delinquent-mortgages-2011-04-28 for handling past-due mortgages.

A central goal is to ensure servicers are working with distressed borrowers to find a resolution early in the process so that fewer loans find their way to the serious delinquency stage.

Fannie ""laid out the specifics"":http://www.dsnews.com/articles/fannie-mae-issues-new-servicing-standards-for-delinquent-mortgages-2011-06-06 of its new guidelines last month, with phased effective dates for each piece of the plan.

According to Fannie Mae’s ""latest monthly summary report"":http://www.fanniemae.com/ir/pdf/monthly/2011/053111.pdf, the company’s total book of business, including its mortgage portfolio and mortgage-backed securities, decreased at an annualized rate of 3.7 percent in May to $3.2 trillion.

Fannie Mae’s gross mortgage portfolio declined at a compound annualized rate of 13.5 percent to $738 billion.
