Mortgage loan delinquencies rise, foreclosures flat
“While the rate of new foreclosures started was essentially unchanged from last quarter’s record high, there was a major drop in foreclosures on subprime ARM loans,” said Jay Brinkmann, MBA’s chief economist. “The drop, however, was offset by increases in the foreclosure rates on the other types of loans, with prime fixed-rate loans having the biggest increase. As a sign that mortgage performance is once again being driven by unemployment, prime fixed-rate loans now account for one in three foreclosure starts. A year ago they accounted for one in five.
California, Florida, Arizona, and Nevada continue to have a disproportionately high share of foreclosure starts, although the share has fallen slightly from last quarter, according to the report, with 44 percent of all of the nation’s new foreclosures during the second quarter of this year, down from 46 percent in the first quarter.
