The seasonally-adjusted delinquency rate for 1-4 family homes fell18 bps to 7.40% in Q3, according to the MBA. The rate fell 59 bps on a Y/Y basis. The percentage of loans in some sort of delinquency fell to 11.71% from 12.63% a year ago. "A significant drop in the shadow inventory of distressed loans (is) a real positive for the housing market." (see Blackstone - buying up everything it sees).

    I want to know who is buying. Is it new homeowners, or investors snapping up leavings, bottom feeders flipping or worse. I want to know all the facts before deciding just how wonderful things are again.

     

    Just the facts ma'am please. (all of them)
