Homeowners Keeping Up With Mortgage Payments

Mortgage Matters 1-22-14


We’re happy to share with you that the number of Dallas-area homeowners behind in their mortgage payments dropped to 3.7 percent in November. That’s down from 4.3 percent in the same month of 2012, according to a new report today from CoreLogic.


The Dallas-area number is well below the 5.09 percent of U.S. homeowners with a loan 90 days or more delinquent. Only 1 percent of Dallas-area home loans were in foreclosure in November. That’s less than half the nationwide foreclosure rate.


North Texas foreclosure filings have dropped to the lowest level in almost a decade. For next month’s foreclosure auctions, postings are about 40 percent below where they were in early 2013.
