As I reported in a story in the Sunday paper, mortage foreclosures are nearing pre-recession levels, giving house prices a major boost. This week, CoreLogic gives us another glimpse into the situation with a report on mortgage delinquencies, which have been steadily falling since the beginning of the economic recovery. In May, the delinquency rate was nearly a full percentage point lower than last year and nearly half the national average - just 2.37 percent of all mortgages were 90 days or more late compared with 4.44 percent nationwide.
