Mortgage delinquency rate in the U.S. 2000-2017

Mortgage delinquency rates in the United States from 2000 to 2017

by Jennifer Rudden, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Mortgage delinquency rate in the U.S. 2000-2017 In 2017, the mortgage delinquency rate was 4.8 percent, down from its peak of 9.4 percent in 2009. Following a dramatic rise associated with the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007-2010, the U.S. mortgage delinquency rate has been trending back towards the long-term average over recent years.
‘Mortgage delinquency rate’

The mortgage delinquency rate is the share of the total number of mortgaged home loans in the U.S. where payment is overdue by 30 days or more. Many borrowers are eventually able to service their loan though, with foreclosure rates being generally 50-75 percent lower than delinquency rates. Total home mortgage debt in the U.S. stood at 10.34 trillion U.S. dollars in 2018.

‘Subprime mortgages’

‘Subprime’ loans, being targeted at high-risk borrowers and generally coupled with higher interest rates to compensate for the risk, have far higher delinquency rates than conventional loans. Defaulting on such loans was one of the triggers for the 2007-2010 financial crisis, with subprime delinquency rates reaching almost 26 percent around this time. These higher delinquency rates translate into higher foreclosure rates, which peaked at just under 15 percent of all subprime mortgages in 2011.
