US foreclosure rate slows but still at historic high, Vermont among lowest

first_imgThe February 2010 Mortgage Monitor report, released by Lender Processing Services, Inc. (NYSE: LPS), a leading provider of mortgage performance data and analytics, shows that while delinquency rates in the U.S. have risen to historic highs, the pace of deterioration has slowed. However, the nation’s housing market remains far from a full recovery.Based on data extrapolated from the LPS servicing database, nearly 7.5 million loans are in some stage of delinquency or foreclosure, with an additional one million properties in REO or post-sale foreclosure. In addition, approximately 2.5 million loans that were current on Jan. 1, 2009, were 60 or more days delinquent (including foreclosures) as of Jan. 31, 2010. Despite extraordinary loss mitigation efforts that have resulted in the execution of approximately two million loan modifications — including the federal government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) trial periods — the number of new delinquencies since January 1, 2009, still exceeds this number by 25 percent.For the nation, the delinquency rate was 10.2 percent, the foreclosure inventory rate was 3.3 percent, and the non-current rate for mortgages was 13.5 percent. The Vermont equivalents were 6.1 percent, 2.0 percent and 8.1 percent.The nation’s pool of problem loans continues to grow and stagnate. More than 31 percent of loans that have been delinquent for six months are not yet in foreclosure, while 22.8 percent of loans delinquent for 12 months have not been moved to foreclosure status (up from 9.0 percent in 2008).Older loans now make up a higher proportion of new delinquencies, as more loans experience repeat delinquencies. The average loan age of newly delinquent loans is now 46 months, as compared to an average newly delinquent loan age of 27 months in January 2007. During January 2010, 346,000 borrowers became delinquent for the first time, representing approximately 40 percent of all newly delinquent loans for the month.Other key results from LPS’ January 2010 Mortgage Monitor include: Total U.S. loan delinquency rate: 10.2 percent Total U.S. foreclosure inventory rate: 3.3 percent Total U.S. non-current* loan rate: 13.5 percent States with most non-current* loans: Florida, Nevada, Mississippi, Arizona, Georgia, California, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio States with fewest non-current* loans: North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Vermont, Colorado, Oregon and Washington*Non-current totals combine foreclosures and delinquencies as a percent of active loans in that state.Note: Totals based on LPS Applied Analytics’ loan-level database of mortgage assets.LPS manages the nation’s leading repository of loan-level residential mortgage data and performance information from approximately 40 million loans across the spectrum of credit products. The company’s research experts carefully analyze this data to produce dozens of charts and graphs that reflect trend and point-in-time observations for LPS’ monthly Mortgage Monitor Report.To review the full report, listen to a presentation of the report or access an executive summary, visithttp://www.lpsvcs.com/NEWSROOM/INDUSTRYDATA/Pages/default.aspx(link is external).About Lender Processing ServicesLender Processing Services, Inc.

We’ve struggled against left-handed pitching for sure.”Gonzales retired the first 10 hitters of the game before Andrelton Simmons hit a line drive that deflected off the pitcher, for the Angels’ first hit. Mike Trout followed with a bloop single.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.With two on and one out, the Angels had a threat. But Justin Upton was called out on strikes and Albert Pujols grounded out.The Angels hit four balls with exit velocities over 100 mph against Gonzales, and they were all outs. In the seventh, Upton hit a ball 109.8 mph right at shortstop Jean Segura, and then Pujols hit one 102.1 mph to right field. Angels starter Jaime Barría wasn’t at his best, but still gave up just three runs in five-plus innings.All the damage came in a short stretch in the third and fourth innings.Barría had retired the first eight hitters before left a fastball over the middle that David Freitas belted just over the fence in right center. Trout leaped at the fence and nearly robbed the homer, but the ball ticked off the end of his glove. An inning later, Barría gave up a two-run single to Nelson Cruz.Barría got out of that inning with a double play and then he worked a scoreless fifth, with three strikeouts, before getting chased after allowing the first two hitters to reach base in the sixth.Related Articles PreviousThe Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout jogs to the dugout after lining out to center fir the last out of the game against the Seattle Mariners in Anaheim on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.
