Loan Performance Insights

Introduction

The CoreLogic Loan Performance Insights report features an interactive view of our mortgage performance analysis through April 2021.

Measuring early-stage delinquency rates is important for analyzing the health of the mortgage market. To more comprehensively monitor mortgage performance, CoreLogic examines all stages of delinquency as well as transition rates that indicate the percent of mortgages moving from one stage of delinquency to the next.

“Natural hazard events and job loss in the oil and gas industry during the past year continue to affect local delinquency rates, despite a general decline in delinquency rates in many urban areas. Of all metros, Odessa and Midland, Texas, had the largest one-year jumps in serious delinquency rates, followed by Lake Charles, Louisiana, which was hit hard by Hurricanes Laura and Delta in 2020.”

– Dr. Frank Nothaft
Chief Economist for CoreLogic

30 Days or More Delinquent – National

In April 2021, 4.7% of mortgages were delinquent by at least 30 days or more including those in foreclosure.

This represents a 1.4-percentage point decrease in the overall delinquency rate compared with April 2020.

Opportunity to Bounce Back

CoreLogic’s data for April 2021 reports its first year-over-year decrease and the lowest overall delinquency rate since the onset of the pandemic as job and income recovery enables more homeowners to remain or return to “current” mortgage payment status. Additionally, in an effort to help borrowers who are in forbearance programs, financial institutions and government entities are continuing to enact provisions that give homeowners ample opportunity to bounce back and keep their homes.

“The sharp rebound in the economy, as well as a potent combination of government fiscal and regulatory help, is fueling unprecedented demand for residential housing and enabling people to buy and stay in their homes. The drop in delinquency rates is a further manifestation of the benefits of these tail winds. Barring an unforeseen change, we expect rates to continue to fall and home prices rise over the next 12-to-18 months.”

– Frank Martell
President and CEO of CoreLogic
