Foreclosure Activity at All-Time Low
For the first six months of 2021, there are a reported 65,082 foreclosure filings—default notices, scheduled auctions, or bank repossessions—on residential properties nationwide, according to ATTOM and RealtyTrac’s Midyear 2021 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report. Foreclosures, today at .05% of all housing units, are down 61% from the same period a year ago and down 78% from the same time period in 2019.
The record-low foreclosure rate can be attributed to government-agency actions, federally and locally, to prevent the loss of homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

Second Foreclosure Crisis Unlikely
There is no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic was an unprecedented shock. However, unlike the 2008 financial crisis, housing was a bystander as external forces disrupted the macro environment rather than a culprit in building up systemic, fundamental imbalances in the financial system. That is an important distinction when it comes to the question of both foreclosures and home prices. Would-be homebuyers who are waiting for a surge in foreclosures and for prices to plunge are likely to find themselves facing even higher prices next year. To add potential insult to injury, many forecasts suggest that homebuyers will be facing higher interest rates after the crisis as well.
Mortgage Forbearance Vs. Deferment:
The Most Important Ways They Differ
If you’re experiencing trouble making your mortgage payment, a mortgage forbearance along with a deferment may provide much-needed relief from financial hardship. However, it’s important to realize that although the terms are sometimes confused for each other, they don’t mean the same thing.
The big difference between forbearance and deferral boils down to this: A forbearance is an act of pausing or reducing your mortgage payment while a deferment may be a post-forbearance option to help take your mortgage current. A deferment typically moves any missed payments to the end of your loan to be paid when you pay off your mortgage.
This article will take a look at forbearance vs. deferment in the mortgage space, how it affects your credit as well as your present and future home financing options and if one is right for you. READ MORE
