Foreclosures Not Any Time Soon

With all the talk about the real estate bubble, especially in certain markets, questions of foreclosures come up too. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the delinquency rate for loans was lower than the first quarter and fourth quarters of 2004. The U.S. economy grew at almost 3.5 percent in "annualized real terms" during 2005, adding 180,000 payroll jobs per month, according to the MBA. Also, the precentage of loans "seriously" delinquent, those past 90 or more days or in foreclosure, was 1.89 percent, which was 18 basis points lower than the 4th quarter of 2004 and even lower than the first quarter of 2004. See MBA's article.
