Delinquents


California mortgage delinquencies expected to rise through 2009

TransUnion expects the percentage of California home loans that are at least 60 days late or are in foreclosure to skyrocket to more than 14% by year-end.

Mortgage delinquencies will continue to rise and set records the rest of this year in California, according to projections to be released today by TransUnion, one of the three big U.S. credit-reporting companies.

The good news from TransUnion's number-crunching is that, even in the tarnished Golden State, the trend may finally reverse itself by the middle of next year.

...
In the region including Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, the delinquency rate also was expected to hit 14% at the end of the year, up from 10.7% as of June 30.

"We think that's about as bad as it's going to get," Guarrera said.

...
As of June 30, 14.9% of residential mortgages in San Bernardino County were at least 60 days late. And in Riverside County, where boom-era home building reached a frenzied peak, 16.5% of home loans were at least 60 days past due.

By comparison, at the end of the first quarter of 2007, Riverside County's delinquency rate was 2.6% and San Bernardino County's, 2.3%.

The normal national rate for these delinquencies is 1.6% to 2%, Guarrera said.

None of them and that's the big problem.

If they release 27000 prisoners, the state will get a windfall on all taxes collected on gun & ammo sales.

I have no doubt that the $50k note Casey signed over to CFC now BAC is in a vault somewhere valued at par.

sigh...... yes most probably

Maybe Casey's future island can become the 21st century's "Australia" -- a place where all of America's mortgage fraudsters and white collar criminals can be perpetually exiled.

Bernie Madoff could be King, and (of course) Casey would be the Queen. :-p

Clearly Bernie is the pitcher and Casey the catcher.

They should repeal the assault weapons ban and tax those. That could cure the budget woes overnight!

Buttafuoco is a Greek word for a (painful) sexual activity? Or Italian? Educate me. Not!
