Serious Mortgage Delinquencies and In-Foreclosure by State

by Bill McBride on 11/18/2012 10:15:00 AM

Last week the MBA released the results of their Q3 National Delinquency Survey. One of the key points was the difference in the number of mortgages in the foreclosure process between judicial and non-judicial foreclosure states.

The first graph below (repeat) is from the MBA and shows the percent of loans in the foreclosure process by state.

The second graph shows all stages of delinquency (and in-foreclosure) by states, sorted by the percent seriously delinquent (90+ days plus in-foreclosure).

This graph is from the MBA and shows the percent of loans in the foreclosure process by state. Posted with permission.

The top states are Florida (13.04% in foreclosure down from 13.70% in Q2), New Jersey (8.87% up from 7.65%), Illinois (6.83% down from 7.11%), New York (6.46% down from 6.47%) and Nevada (the only non-judicial state in the top 13 at 5.93% down from 6.09%).

California (2.63% down from 3.07%) and Arizona (2.51% down from 3.24%) are now well below the national average.

MBA Delinquency by PeriodThe second graph includes all delinquent loans (sorted by percent seriously delinquent).

Florida and New Jersey have the highest percentage of serious delinquent loans, followed by Nevada, Illinois, New York, Maine and Maryland. Nevada still leads with the highest percent of loans 90+ days delinquent.

Previous high delinquency states like California and Arizona are now well down the list.
