There was a fourth straight decline in the number of mortgage loans in forbearance during the week ended September 15. Black Knight says the total dropped by 26,000 or 0.7 percent to an estimated 3.7 million loans. That is down 22 percent from the peak of over 4.7 million in late May. Volumes have declined in 10 of the last 12 weeks. The remaining forborne loans represent 7 percent of all active mortgages and $781 billion in unpaid principal. Black Knight says there are 1.7 million plans set to expire in September so there could be significant numbers of plan extensions as well as plans ending over the next few weeks.
The refinance share of loans originated in August rebounded slightly from July levels as interest rates fell to the lowest in Ellie Mae's history. The company's Origination Insight Report says the average rate on all loans fell to 3.09 percent during the month, down from 3.24 percent in July. The 30-year note rate VA loans fell below 3 percent to 2.86 percent from 3.02 percent in July. The 30-year note rate on conventional loans dropped to 3.12 percent from 3.26 percent in July. Similarly, the 30-year rate on FHA loans fell from 3.26 percent to 3.10 percent. As a result of these rates, the refinance share grew to 56 percent of all loans, up from 54 percent in July. The purchase mortgages share dipped to 44 percent from 46 percent.
