MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing averaged fixed mortgage rates largely unchanged following a week of light economic reports.

"Mortgage rates were little changed amid a week of light economic reports. Of the few releases, the economy added 113,000 jobs in January, which was below the market consensus forecast and followed a slight upward revision of 1,000 jobs in December. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 6.6 percent, which makes thirteen consecutive months without an increase."
