Although overall mortgage delinquency moved higher, early stage delinquency retreated, while serious mortgage delinquency and the foreclosure rate held steady.

Delinquency of at least 30 days on single-family loans, including loans in the foreclosure inventory, represented 5.1 percent of all mortgages as of Oct. 31, 2017.

The non-current rate was elevated versus the preceding month, when it was previously reported at 5.0 percent. But an improvement was recorded from 5.2 percent a year prior.
