Black Knight: Prepayment Rate Marks 18 Year Low

Despite recent declines in interest rates, January's prepayment rate was the lowest since November 2000.

Seasonal reductions in home sales outweighed any early, rate-driven rise in refinance incentive, according to the “first look” data from Black Knight. Housing turnover typically bottoms out in January and February, so prepayments could pick up again if rates remain low through the early spring home-buying season

The national delinquency rate fell by 3.5 percent and is now 13 percent below last year's level. Foreclosure starts rose seasonally month-over-month but were down more than 19 percent year-over-year. The number of loans in active foreclosure continued its downward trend; there are now 265,000 active foreclosures, down 72,000 from one year ago.
