Data Notes and Definitions

90+ Day Delinquency Rate: This measures the percentage of loans that are more than 90 days delinquent including those in foreclosure and REO (real estate owned).

Foreclosure Rate:This measures the percentage of loans in some stage of foreclosure including 90+ delinquencies through properties sold at auction.

This does not represent the number of new foreclosure filings as provided by other data companies, but rather the current stock, or inventory, of loans in the foreclosure process which offers a comprehensive view of foreclosure trends.

REO (Real Estate Owned) Rate: This measures the percentage of loans not sold at auction which are then returned to the lender.

Foreclosure data for First American CoreLogic is reported based on the actual number of active mortgage loans rather than the total number of households in a given area, which provides more accurate results by removing paid-in-full mortgages from the equation.
