USA Risk Climate: TransUnion: National Mortgage Loan Delinquency Rates Hit Lowest Level Since 2009

The national mortgage delinquency rate (the rate of borrowers 60 or more days past due) declined for the first 3 months of 2012, coming in at 5.78%. This improvement ends 2 quarters of increases that began in Q3 2011.  This information is reported by TransUnion and is part of its ongoing series of quarterly analyses of credit-active U.S. consumers and how they are managing credit related to mortgages, credit cards and auto loans.

Prior to Q3 2011, 60-day mortgage delinquency rates had dropped for six consecutive quarters. This latest quarter brings the delinquency rate to its lowest point since Q1 2009.
