A strong economy has had a positive impact on mortgage foreclosure rates. However, recent disastrous fires have had a negative impact on the national average foreclosure rate. The Carr fire was specifically referenced as a contributor shared in this article. Although California was showing loan delinquency rates below the national average, the local fires have added an extra burden to homeowners with loans. A full loan performance report is available at Loan Performance. The report shows that across the country, 4.2 percent of mortgages were 30 days or more past due. This is the best average reported in 12 years.
