Inquiring minds are reading the latest LPS Mortgage Monitor, released today.
Foreclosure timelines continue to increase across the board – almost 40 percent of loans in foreclosure have not made a payment in two years, and 72 percent have not made a payment in a year or more. New problem loan rates increased sharply over the last two months, with 1.6 percent of loans that were current six months ago now 60 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure.
Here are a few charts from LPS.
