The Mortgage Bankers Association’s latest Forbearance and Call Volume Survey reported loans in forbearance decreased by 6 basis points to 7.74% of servicers' volume as of July 19, from 7.80% the prior week. MBA now estimates 3.9 million homeowners are in forbearance plans.
Share of Loans in Forbearance Falls for 6th Straight Week
“The share of loans in forbearance declined by a smaller amount than in previous weeks, as the pace of borrowers exiting forbearance slowed. Although the GSE portfolio of loans in forbearance should continue to improve, Ginnie Mae’s portfolio saw an uptick of both loans in forbearance and borrowers requesting forbearance. The high level of unemployment claims in recent weeks may be playing a role, as weakness would likely impact Ginnie Mae’s portfolio first.” --MBA Chief Economist Mike Fratantoni.
