Hey David, not much of a shocker for those of us who keep up with the numbers on mortgage delinquencies.  In comparing January 2011 to October 2011, the percentage of non current mortgages versus the total number of mortgages shows a decrease from 13.06% to 12.21%.  So the numbers appear to be trending in the right direction.  Much success to you!

12.22 %. It's still a stiff calculation and not much recovery at little more than a percentile, Jordon. March, April and May had the best performance, and probably a seasonal phenomenon. There are 408k fewer 90+ day delinquincies for Oct11. Rebuilding the market is like wading through molasses, slow and sticky and it'll be intersting to see how the numbers recalculate after the nation gets the bill for holiday spending. Thanks for dropping by.

Hi David, to be honest I thought it would have been worse.  Have a great Holiday.

David, interesting that non-judicial states are lower (my state CA is non-judicial). What I've been seeing in my local market now is FHA loans taken out in '09 are now in default, more than 90 days late. That's only two years. FHA are riskier loans. I'm only speculating, but the reason I conclude is job loss, or loss of income. Unemployment rates are still very high in my area, as well as across the country. The unemployment numbers that have been reported for the nation we know do not reflect those whose unemployment benefits ended. 

We have a long way to go yet.

These numbers continue to trend downward. Once the foreclosure and many of the delinquent short sales are concluded, these numbers drop.

Great charts the FHA default chart was amazing.  I've been getting more calls from people who are struggling and are curious about short sales.  I've been seeing more VA loans in trouble too.

It might get worse when the bills from the credit cards arrive after the holidays, Ronald.

Involuntary alienation in non-judicial states is much faster, Pamela, or any state that uses a deed of trust instead of a mortgage contract.  It's also a much less expensive process and a great relief to any lender seeking to cure the default. The borrower's motivation and mental attitude to stay current on the loan should be greater in those regions because of a speedy procedure which clearly dictates "if they don't pay, they don't stay", and expedites the eviction. Those states cram their newspapers full of notices of default and trustee sales, and it's painful to think that the foreclosure process has become a windfall for classified advertising.

The downward trend appears seasonal in the first chart, Joe. They flare back up following the springtime sale-a-thons.

Thanks for your note, Kim. Nice to hear from you.
