Mortgage Delinquencies Increase In May; 1 in 8 Borrowers At Risk of Losing Home

Dennis Norman

Homeowners’ mortgage delinquency rates increased in May 2.3 percent from April rising to 9.2 percent of all mortgages being delinquent. This information comes from a report issued by LPS Applied Analytics, one of the largest mortgage servicers in the U.S.

According to the report there are, as of May 31, 2010, 7.3 million home mortgages currently in some stage of delinquency. After seeing a couple of months of improvement there was a turn for the worse in May of the “deterioration ratio”, the reltionship between the number of loans going to a “worse” status for every one that has improved. In May this deterioration ratio increased to 2.5 loans getting worse for every 1 getting better.

Other highlights from the report:

  • Total U.S. Mortgage delinquency rate 9.20 percent
  • Total U.S. Foreclosure Inventory Rate 3.18 percent
  • States with the most delinquent loans and foreclosures:
    • Florida, Nevada, Mississippi, Georgia, Arizona, California, Illinois, New Jersey
  • States with the fewest delinquent loans and foreclosures:
    • North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Nebraska, Vermont, Colorado, Iowa and Minnesota

When you really give some thought to these statistics I think you’ll find them disturbing, making even sickening, to think that almost 1 out of every 10 homeowners with a mortgage in the U.S. are delinquent on their mortgage (and ultimately at risk of losing their home) and that about 1 in every 8 borrowers are either delinquent on their mortgage or in some stage of foreclosure. So if sometimes while reading my posts you wonder why I seem somewhat negative, or even cynical, toward some of the reports about a “recovery” of the housing market, now you know why. I’m no economist but I just don’t see how we can have a housing recovery while 1 in 8 of us are either losing or at risk of losing our homes.
