Area mortgage delinquency rate falls below 4 percent in May

The percentage of mortgage holders in Tarrant and five adjacent counties delinquent on their payments at least three months fell to 3.7 percent in May, compared with 4.1 percent in the same month last year.

The foreclosure rate in that area was 0.77 percent in May, down from 1.2 percent in May 2013, according to CoreLogic.

The delinquency rate, the percentage of all mortgages 90 days or more late, fell below 4 percent in March and has stayed there since.

Nationally, the delinquency rate was 4.4 percent and the foreclosure rate 1.7 percent, CoreLogic said.

The local rate includes data from Tarrant, Parker, Hood, Johnson, Sommervell and Wise counties.
