Percentage of St Louis Homeowners With Negative Equity Grows Slightly

The number of homeowners that are “seriously underwater“, or in a negative-equity position, increased during the 2nd quarter of this year, according to a report just released by Attom Data Solutions.   During the 2nd quarter of 2106, 17.8% of the homeowners, with a mortgage, in the St Louis MSA were in a negative equity position, up from 16.6% the quarter before and up just slightly from 17.4% during the 2nd quarter of 2015.

To be included in this report, a homeowner has to owe 125% of the current value of their home, so these people are definitely “seriously underwater”.  Obviously, there are many more people that are in a negative equity position, meaning they owe anywhere from 100% to 125% of the value of they home in mortgages.
