Mortgage Delinquencies Hit Record High, New Home Sales Disappoint

Green shoots spinning in their grave – 12 percent of homeowners with a mortgage are behind on their payments or in foreclosure. Half of all adjustable-rate loans to borrowers with shaky credit were past due or in foreclosure. And we still have to see the Option ARM hurricane. California, Nevada, Arizona and Florida accounted for 46 percent of new foreclosures in the country.

Also new home sales rise to a below consensus 0.3%, "up" from a majorly downward revised March decline of -3.0%.

Amusingly, homebuilder confidence climbed to an eight-month high in May. Mortgage applications to purchase homes are also up 9 percent from February’s nine-year low. We shall see how confidence fares now that mortgage rates are at pre QE levels.
