NOTE: Freddie Mac surveys lenders each week to obtain the average contract
interest rate, average number of points, and the average ARM margin that would 
be quoted to consumers on conventional, conforming first mortgage products.  
Four single-family loan products are covered: 30-year fixed-rate, 15-year
fixed-rate, 5/1 Treasury-indexed adjustable-rate mortgages, and 1-year
Treasury-indexed adjustable-rate mortgages.
Currently, 125 lenders are surveyed each week and the mix of lender types --
thrifts, commercial banks and mortgage lending companies -- is roughly
proportional to the level of mortgage business that each type commands
nationwide.  National averages and averages for each of five regions are
reported.
