The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) published its second quarter mortgage metrics report. The report showed that 97.3 percent of mortgages included in the report (22 percent of all residential mortgage debt outstanding in the U.S.) were current and performing at the end of the quarter, compared with 97.6 percent in the first quarter 2023. Performance improved compared to second quarter 2022 when 97.0 percent of mortgages were current and performing. Delinquencies remain well below Fitch’s forecast of between 4.0 percent and 4.5 percent by 2023 year-end.
According to the report, most major delinquency and foreclosure indicators decreased from 2022 and continue a downward trend in 2023. One interesting statistic in the OCC’s report shows that loans modified in the 4th quarter of 2022 were 60 or more days delinquent at a rate of 13.3 percent as the modification became six months old. It appears recidivism continues to remain a concern of lenders.
