Mortgage Defaults Increase In November

A report released this week by Standard & Poor’s and Experian showed an increase in monthly default rates on first mortgages to 3.05 percent and an increase in default rates on second mortgages to 1.80 percent.  The increase in default rates for first mortgages is the first increase since December 2009.  The good news is that even though the rate in November increased, it is still down 34.84 percent from a year ago at the same time.

David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee, said “the deterioration in the mortgage sector may be temporary: rates of new defaults have been declining for over a year with occasional brief interruptions.”
