Hope Now: Mortgage Loss Mitigation Statistics

by Calculated Risk on 7/30/2009 03:26:00 PM

Hope Now released the Q2 Mortgage Loss Mitigation Statistics today.

Most of the data concerns modifications, but here are couple of graphs on delinquencies and foreclosures.

Hope Now Delinquent Click on graph for larger image in new window.

There are now more than 3 million mortgage loans 60+ delinquent based on the Hope Now statistics. This covers approximately 85% of the total industry.

There are far more prime loans delinquent than subprime, although a much higher percentage of subprime (18.4%) vs prime (4.24%).

Hope Now Foreclosures The second graph shows foreclosure starts and completions.

Foreclosure starts are above 250 thousand per month, and completions close to 100 thousand per month. There is a lag between start and completion, and a number of loans cure or are modified - but it does appear completions will increase in the 2nd half of 2009 based on the surge in starts at the beginning of the year.

Just some data for everyone ...
