MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC)
today announced Loan Quality Advisor(SM), a new online loan tool that
gives lenders an automated way to identify credit, data and purchase
eligibility issues before they deliver loans to Freddie Mac. By
helping lenders spot and fix potential problems earlier in the loan
manufacturing process, Loan Quality Advisor can make Freddie Mac's
purchase requirements more transparent and give lenders greater

that were not originated on Loan Prospector(R), Freddie Mac's
automated underwriting service.

Purchase Certainty initiative to help lenders improve loan quality
while making business with Freddie Mac more efficient and transparent
