Question description

Hopefully everyone knows this already, but you can have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage to keep payments steady and low (compared with a 15-year loan).  Then you can make extra principal payments each month to shorten the length of the loan.  If you have a bad month, then just pay your regular mortgage payment.  With the 30-year loan, you have the option to pay more principal without penalty, but the higher payment is a requirement with the 15-year mortgage.

Does anyone know what percentage of the US residential mortgages are owned by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae?
