Freddie Mac: Mortgage Serious Delinquency Rate increased slightly in November

by Calculated Risk on 12/23/2019 06:39:00 PM

Freddie Mac reported that the Single-Family serious delinquency rate in November was 0.62%, up from 0.61% in October. Freddie's rate is down from 0.70% in November 2018.

Freddie's serious delinquency rate peaked in February 2010 at 4.20%.

These are mortgage loans that are "three monthly payments or more past due or in foreclosure".

I expect the delinquency rate to decline to a cycle bottom in the 0.4% to 0.6% range - so this is close to a bottom.

Note: Fannie Mae will report for November soon.
