Take a look at the breakdown is various delinquency categories:

  • Early stage – 30 to 59 days past due – 1.3% in February 2022, down from 1.5% in February 2021
  • Mid stage – 60 to 89 days past due – 0.3% in February 2022, down from 0.5% in February 2021
  • Late stage or serious delinquency rate – 90 days or more past due (including loans in foreclosure) – 1.6% in February 2022, down from 3.7% in February 2021

Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist with CoreLogic, said, “One-half of the borrowers who are seriously delinquent are behind on their payments by six or more months.  Even though this group has been declining, the number (of borrowers) that have missed at least six monthly payments is still double what it was in the months immediately prior to the pandemic.”

Home Price Growth Expected to Cool

CoreLogic is expecting home price growth to cool from nearly +21% since March 2021 to approximately +6% by March 2023.

If national home price appreciation does in fact cool, equity gains for some homeowners around the country may also cool.  Less equity gains could mean less protection from mortgage defaults for those who fall behind on their payments.
