Trended Credit Data

Fannie Mae requires Trended Credit Data when underwriting single-family loans through Desktop Underwriter (DU). Trended Credit Data is historical detail on the trade-line showing the actual monthly payment, balance and scheduled payment over the previous 24 months. Trended Credit Data may reveal credit behavior such as:
  • if the borrower pays off revolving credit lines each month
  • if the borrower makes minimum or other monthly payment amounts
  • if the borrower is reducing total amount borrowed over time
  • if the borrower makes inconsistent or seasonal changes in monthly payments
Trended credit data is available in all CIS mortgage credit.
