Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Impacts Mortgage Delinquencies 


CNBC’s Diane Olick reports that Dark Knight Financial Services is reporting their initial estimates on the impact of Hurricane Harvey on mortgage delinquencies.

Per Dark Knight, they project “300,000 borrowers could become delinquent on their loans…”

That’s four times the original prediction.

·        As many as 300,000 borrowers could become delinquent on their loans after Hurricane Harvey, Black Knight Financial Services says.

·        That is four times the original prediction because new disaster zones were designated and more homes flooded.

·        There are 2.08 million mortgaged properties in Irma-related FEMA disaster areas, more than four times that of Katrina and twice as many as Harvey. Total unpaid mortgage balances for Irma areas are $370 billion.

·        Lenders have better systems in place to deal with delinquent loans, and they are more likely to offer borrowers, even seriously delinquent borrowers, options to catch up.
