—Report Examines Trends in U.S. Mortgage Fraud—

CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading residential property information, analytics and services provider, today released its October MarketPulse report. In this report, CoreLogic Chief Economist Mark Fleming, Ph.D., discusses mortgage application fraud risk in an evolving market and Deputy Chief Economist Sam Khater explains the decline in negative equity in the first half of 2013.

Additional key findings in the October MarketPulse report include:

  • The mortgage application fraud risk index is down 5.6 percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the same time period a year ago.
  • While the propensity for mortgage fraud is declining from its peak in 2012, the overall amount is increasing as mortgage loan applications increase.
  • The bulk of the decline in negative equity has been confined to the first half of this year when home prices increased 10 percent.
  • Every state’s level of negative equity has declined, with the biggest improvements concentrated in the states with the most home price appreciation.
