Instead of surveying lenders, the weekly results will be based on applications received from thousands of lenders across the country that are submitted to Freddie Mac when a borrower applies for a mortgage. Also, we will no longer publish fees/points or adjustable rates. The newly revamped PMMS will go live in November 2022, and weekly distribution will occur on Thursdays at 12:00 noon ET.
