Almost 1 in 8 Missourians are delinquent on mortgage payments according to MBA report

Missouri ranks 21st in delinquencies and 30th in foreclosures

Mortgage Bankers Association Logo MBAAccording to a report just issued by the Mortgage Bankers Association, the mortgage delinquency rate on one-to-four-unit residential properties in the U.S. rose to a new record rate of 9.64 percent.  Here in Missouri, the delinquency rate is slightly lower at 9.41 percent.

Included in the MBA’s report as a “delinquency” are loans that are at least one payment past due, but does NOT include loans somewhere in the process of foreclosure. At the end of third quarter 2.05 percent of mortgage loans in Missouri were in the foreclosure process. Therefore 11.46 percent of mortgage loans in Missouri are actually delinquent once we add in the ones in foreclosure. This is a staggering and sobering statistic…it means nearly 1 in 8 homeowners in Missouri with a mortgage is struggling to make their house payments. With this in mind I ask, so where exactly is this “recovery” I keep reading about? I’m not a gloom and doom type, but I just don’t see the bottom yet.
