Area foreclosure rate drops below 0.4%

The health of Middle Tennessee's housing market continues to improve, according to research firm CoreLogic. At the end of May, just 0.38 percent of all homeowners were in foreclosure — compared to 0.56 percent statewide and 1.29 percent nationally — while the 90-day mortgage delinquency rate has dropped more than 40 basis points since the end of 2014.

Nashville housing growing stronger still, says Freddie Mac

The Middle Tennessee housing market continues to grow healthier, according to the Freddie Mac Multi-Indicator Market Index, which tracks transaction data as well as residents' incomes, mortgage applications and overall job growth. The measure ended May up more than 8 percent year over year, its fastest growth pace since last August and almost three points higher than in March. Nashville's MiMi reading is at its highest since January 2008.

Breaking down the latest MiMi reading — you can check it out here — the recent surge is mainly due to a big improvement in Nashville's job market. Mortgage applications and credit quality have been in good shape for a while, which leaves the index's payment-to-income ratio component as the only laggard. But it, too, is improving and has climbed four points to almost 73 in the past three months.
