So who does the fed buy these

So who does the fed buy these mbs packages from? Fannie? If so, how would Fannie benefit? By freeing up their books for future investments? If banks are already getting free money and interest rates are already low, why would an investor be affected by the fed purchasing these mbs packages? If interest rates are promised to be low for years to come, what is the hurry to invest money?
