The March Treasury report on HAMP has been released and it shows that Oregon total modifications went up because permanent loan modifications increased by 630 during March, an increase of 31% compared to February, slightly lower than the 35% national increase. Trial modifications continued to decline during March in Oregon, down 5% from February.
The table below shows the CHANGE in HAMP loan modifications for Oregon and US during March:
|Metric||TOTAL||OREGON||% Chg, US||% Chg, Oregon|
|March-Feb Trial Loan Mod Chg||(54,243)||(480)||-6%||-5%|
|March-Feb Permanent Loan Mod Chg||59,214||630||35%||31%|
|March-Feb TOTAL Loan Mod Chg||4,971||150||0.5%||1%|
As more permanent loan modifications are put into place, the inventory of trial loan modifications has decreased in Oregon; in March that inventory reduced by 480 loans, to 8,955 loans.
I have completed a three page set of tables HERE that includes an Oregon and US summary AND a table with loan modification data for all states from Dec 2009-March 2010. (First page is letter size, pages 2-3 are legal).
