TransUnion: Mortgage Delinquency Rate Continues to Drop Across All Age Groups

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- The mortgage delinquency rate (the rate of borrowers 60 days or more delinquent on their mortgages) declined for the 10th consecutive quarter to 3.46% at the end of Q2 2014, according to TransUnion's latest mortgage report. The mortgage delinquency rate has declined nearly 20% in the last year (down from 4.32% in Q2 2013).

TransUnion data indicate that declines in the mortgage delinquency rate are occurring across all age groups. The youngest mortgage borrowers, those below the age of 30, have both the lowest mortgage delinquency rate (2.34%), and have experienced the steepest decline in the last year (down 28.6%). However, this age group also represents a small share of all mortgage accounts -- 4.16%.

"Mortgage delinquency rates continue to drop and we are seeing this decline across all age groups," said Steve Chaouki, head of financial services for TransUnion. "Overall, the improvements in the mortgage delinquency rate can be attributed to a number of factors. These include the clearing of severely delinquent accounts through foreclosure as well as a lower rate of new delinquencies from post-recession vintages, which generally are of significantly higher credit quality and have experienced much better performance than mortgages originated before the recession. This dynamic is likely driving the low delinquencies among younger borrowers. It is encouraging to see younger borrowers perform well, since their generation was significantly impacted by the recession and their loans are among the newest."

All 50 states and the District of Columbia experienced declines in their mortgage delinquency rates between Q2 2013 and Q2 2014. Most major markets also saw yearly drops in their mortgage delinquency rates, including: San Francisco (-29.3%), Phoenix (-28.7%), Miami (-26.7%), Los Angeles (-24.1%) and Chicago (-20.6%). Markets lagging the national average in terms of the rate of delinquency improvement include: Philadelphia (-1.1%), Boston (-4.1%) and New York (-5.5%).

TransUnion recorded 52.8 million mortgage accounts as of Q2 2014, up from 52.4 million in Q2 2013. However, there are more than 10 million fewer accounts as compared to the same period in 2008 (63.4 million).

Viewed one quarter in arrears (to ensure all accounts are reported and included in the data), new account originations dropped 51.1% from 2.2 million in Q1 2013 to 1.1 million in Q1 2014. The share of non-prime originations did rise in the last year, increasing from 5.0% in Q1 2013 to 7.8% in Q1 2014. "The drop in mortgage account originations was dramatic. This resulted from a severe decline in refinance activity due to higher interest rates, compounded by unusually harsh weather conditions across large parts of the country," said Chaouki.
