LPS said there was no change in the rate over November figures, according to its first look at December mortgage performance statistics. The total U.S. foreclosure pre-sale inventory rate hit 4.11%, which is down 1.3% from November and down 1% from last year. More than 4.1 million properties have mortgages that are 30 or more days past due, while 1.79 million have loans that are 90 or more days delinquent. Number of properties that are 30 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure equals more than 6.16 million.
