Freddie Mac: Mortgage Serious Delinquency Rate declined in February


Freddie Mac reported that the Single-Family serious delinquency rate in February was 0.65%, down from 0.66% January. Freddie’s rate is down year-over-year from 0.99% in February 2022.

Freddie’s serious delinquency rate peaked in February 2010 at 4.20% following the housing bubble and peaked at 3.17% in August 2020 during the pandemic.

These are mortgage loans that are “three monthly payments or more past due or in foreclosure”.

Mortgages in forbearance are being counted as delinquent in this monthly report but are not reported to the credit bureaus.

The serious delinquency rate was at 0.60% just prior to the pandemic; this is almost back to that level.
Note that multi-family delinquencies have been increasing and were at 0.13% in February, up from 0.08% in February 2022.
