rate, and the foreclosure inventory.
MBA said that 4.99 percent of all one-to-four unit
residential mortgage loans outstanding at the end of the quarter had missed at
least one payment, the lowest rate since the first quarter of 2007. An additional 1.88 percent were in some stage
of foreclosure, i.e. the foreclosure inventory.
The delinquency rate was down 31 basis points (bps) from the second
quarter and 86 bps from the third quarter of 2014. The foreclosure inventory was 21 bps lower
than the previous quarter and 51 points below the rate a year earlier. It was the lowest level for the inventory
since the third quarter of 2007.
