Understanding Drops in Mortgage Delinquency

Serious delinquency rate on home mortgages was the lowest in more than 12 years, according to a recent report. CoreLogic’s TrueStandings data revealed that mortgage rates have been pushed down by recent strong underwriting as well as family-income and home-price growth.

Nothaft also discusses how higher delinquency rates on consumer credit across mortgages as well as student loans and more could slow consumption spending and effect home buying in the coming year, slowing economic growth and putting lender portfolios at risk.
