Black Knight’s First Look at May 2017 Mortgage Data: Easing Interest Rates Spur Increase in Prepayment Activity; Delinquencies Pull Back After April’s Increase

June 22, 2017
  • Prepayments (historically a good indicator of refinance activity) jumped 23 percent month-over-month, reaching their highest point so far in 2017
  • Delinquencies reversed course after calendar-driven increase in April, falling 7.13 percent month-over-month
  • Inventory of loans either seriously delinquent (90 or more days past due) or in active foreclosure continues to improve, with both hitting 10-year lows in May
  • Just 2.12 percent of Colorado borrowers are past due on mortgage payments, the lowest of any state; Mississippi has the highest non-current rate of any state at 10.16 percent
