Alt-A Loans Delinquent, Foreclosed and REO'd

According to the New York Fed, as of November 2008, 78% of the $705 billion worth of Alt-A Loans were current with their payments. That means that ~$150 billion of loans are delinquent, in foreclosure or already Real-Estate Owned (REO) by the banks.

But as I've blogged about earlier, more than half of the Alt-A Loans are from California & Florida... So how are those two states doing?

As of November, 2008 the Fed shows that 72% of California's $300 billion Alt-A portfolio is current with their payments while 5% (~$15 billion) is 30 - 59 days behind, 3% (~$10 Billion) is 60-89 days behind, and 8% (~$25 billion) is over 90 days behind... An additional 12% is either in Foreclosure or REO... So California is clearly worse off than the rest of the nation, but Florida is even worse:

In November, 2008 only about 2/3rds of the $64 Billion of outstanding Alt-A mortgages were current, with a whopping 17% in foreclosure and another ~15% over 30 days delinquent.
