Fannie Mae, the biggest backer of U.S. home loans, said it won’t seek Treasury Department aid after reporting net income of $2.7 billion for the first quarter.

The Washington-based company, which has operated under U.S. conservatorship since it was seized in September 2008, cited lower credit-related expenses, a decline in serious delinquency rates and a drop in its inventory of owned properties as contributors to the improvement, according to a statement released today. The company has drawn a total of $117.1 billion in aid while under government control.

The first-quarter profit reflected a “less significant decline in home prices,” the company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.
