Black Knight's First Look at November 2017 Mortgage Data   

Continued Hurricane-Driven Effects Lead to Largest 90-Day Delinquency Increase in Nine Years

December 21, 2017

  • 90-day delinquent mortgage inventory spiked 13 percent in November, the largest monthly increase since 2008 as the financial crisis began to unfold
  • While 90-day delinquency increases are common in November, the volumes seen this year are noteworthy
  • Over 85 percent – approximately 66,000 – of the month’s 77,000 new severely delinquent loans can be attributed to hurricanes Harvey and Irma
  • As a result, the current estimate of 90-day delinquencies resulting from Harvey and Irma totals over 85,000
  • Inflow of new hurricane-driven delinquencies has slowed, with Irma-related delinquencies up 8,200 month-over-month, while Harvey-related delinquencies declined by 8,400
  • ​The 2.5 percent increase in the overall national delinquency rate is attributable to typical seasonality; November increases have been observed in nine of the past 10 years and 16 of the past 18​
