o The national delinquency rate hit its lowest level since the onset of the pandemic and is now back below its pre-Great Recession average

o Despite the improvement, there are more than 1.5 million homeowners 90 or more days past due on their mortgages but who are not in foreclosure, still nearly four times pre-pandemic levels

o Serious delinquency rates remain elevated by more than a full percentage point across all 50 states, with Hawaii and Nevada serious delinquency rates remaining elevated by 3.4 percentage points

o Though serious delinquencies remain significantly elevated, the share of mortgages in active foreclosure fell to yet another record low in June at 0.27%

o Recent pullbacks in interest rates resulted in prepayment activity edging upward for the first time in three months
