Foreclosure Starts Up from October, But Still Near 10-Year Lows

December 22, 2016

  • ​​Delinquency rate up by 2.5 percent, a relatively mild seasonal increase by historical standards​
  • Annual improvement in mortgage delinquency rates is beginning to slow as market “normalizes”
  • Number of loans in active foreclosure drops below 500K for the first time in nearly 10 years
  • Pre-payment activity remains strong, for now, as applications made prior to the rise in interest rates continue to close​
