This is caused by a couple of things. The economics of the U.S.A. are improving and most of the foreclosures that are going to happen, as a result of the recession, have already taken place.   For a more detailed look at this subject – please read the article below.

Homeowners are working harder to make timely mortgage payments, according recent data from TransUnion. The mortgage delinquency rate dropped 23.3 percent in the past year, ending Q3 2013 at 4.09 percent. Last year it stood at 5.33 percent. The mortgage delinquency rate also dropped on a quarterly basis, down 5.3 percent from 4.32 percent in Q2 2013, the seventh straight quarterly decline.

Around the United States, most states experienced a decline in their mortgage delinquency rate between Q3 2012 and Q3 2013. California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and Utah experienced more than 30 percent declines in their mortgage delinquency rate. Three states—California, Florida, and Nevada—had double-digit percentage drops in the last quarter.

TransUnion cultivated the data from anonymized credit data from virtually every credit-active consumer in the United States. TransUnion’s forecast is based on various economic assumptions, such as gross state product, consumer sentiment, unemployment rates, real personal income, and real estate values. The forecast would change if there are unanticipated shocks to the economy affecting recovery in the housing market or if home prices begin to depreciate once again.

“This isn’t a sample data set,” said Tim Martin, group VP of U.S. Housing for TransUnion’s financial services business unit.

“We looked at all 52 million installment-based mortgages in the U.S. and the trend is clear—the percentage of borrowers willing and able to make their mortgage payments continues to improve,” Martin continued. “The overall delinquency rate is still high relative to ‘normal,’ but a 23 percent year over year improvement is great news for homeowners and their lenders.”
