• The national delinquency rate rose nine basis points from May to reach 2.84%, after hitting consecutive record lows in each of the prior three months
  • Increases were broad-based – the number of borrowers a single payment past due rose 5%, while 90-day delinquencies broke a 21-month streak of improvement with a modest 1% uptick from the prior month
  • Foreclosure starts were also up 27% in June – still 40% below pre-pandemic levels – marking a 441% year-over-year increase; a significant rise from pandemic-driven lows
  • Starts also represented the highest share (4%) of serious delinquencies since March 2020, but less than half the rate in the years leading up to the pandemic
  • Active foreclosure inventory rose by 16K in the month as volumes continue to slowly come off the record lows brought on by widespread moratoriums and forbearance protections in 2020/21
  • Prepayment activity was down another 7% in June with prepays now down by 64% from the same time last year as rising rates put downward pressure on both purchase and refinance lending
