  1. The number of loans in foreclosure has dropped by more than 500K since last year (1.24M as of Feb.)
  2. There are now nearly 1 million fewer non-current mortgages since last February (4.1M as of Feb).
  3. The roughly 92K foreclosure starts in February marked a 30% year-over-year decline.
The monthly prepayment rate (historically a good indicator of refinance activity) declined almost 64% year-over-year. Mississippi, Nevada & Rhode Island have highest rates of seriously delinquent (90+ days) loans. Non-current rates in Vermont & Massachusetts have increased the most over the past 6 mos. (up 1.9% and 1.3%, respectively)
