McLEAN, VA-Freddie Mac is going to market with an offering of Structured Pass-Through Certificates, or K certs—the GSE’s brand of multifamily mortgage-backed securities. Freddie expects to price the approximately $1.1 billion in K certificates this week and settle on or about Aug. 14. This is its 10th K-cert offering this year. If it seems as though the GSE just went to market with its ninth,  that’s because it did.  In the second week of July it rolled out a $1.1-billion offering that was set to settle on July 26.

On average, Freddie Mac has been offering its K certificates every three weeks, a spokeswoman tells “The length of time between offerings varies a bit,” she notes. “Sometimes it’s five weeks, sometimes it’s two.” She attributes the stepped-up pace to the strong demand for multifamily securities and loans.
