Mortgage Loan Delinquency Rates Hit Lowest Level Since 2000

According to a report just released by Corelogic, the 30-59 day mortgage delinquency rate in March (the most recent month reported) fell to just 1.7%, the lowest level since January 2000.  The “seriously delinquency” rate (30+ days late) fell to 4.4% in March, the lowest level sine November 2007, according to Corelogic.

In addition, the “transition rates” all improved as well from a year ago.  Transition rates show which way the borrowers are moving, from slightly delinquent to more delinquent, or from slightly delinquent to current for example.  Below are the transition rates for March 2017, according to the Corelogic report:

  • Borrowers going from current to 30 days late – 0.6% for March 2017, down from 0.7% in March 2016
  • Borrowers going from 30 days late to 60 days late – 11.6% for March 2017, down from 13.2% in March 2016
  • Borrowers going from 60 days late to 90 days late – 20.8% for March 2017, down from 23.1% in March 2016

All of this is good news for the real estate industry as the trends are positive and are is a good “leading indicator” of what is to come.  As mortgage delinquencies decrease, foreclosures, short sales and other distressed home sales decline, putting less downward pricing pressure on the housing market and providing sustainability to the improving housing market.

Speaking of mortgages, if you are considering refinancing, want to know what current rates and terms are, or would like to get pre-approved for a mortgage, I would highly recommend speaking with Ryan Derryberry, a mortgage loan professional with Movement Mortgage.  Ryan is a great guy, is honest and knows his stuff. Movement is a great company, founded and operated on great principals and offer some mortgage products you won’t find anywhere else….More information on Ryan, including his contact info, can be found here.
