Q2 2021 Quarterly Mortgage Fraud Brief

With an overheated housing market, new government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) requirements on investment properties and the transition to a more robust purchase market, mortgage fraud is once again on the rise after a brief dip last year.

The CoreLogic Quarterly Mortgage Fraud Brief analyzes the metro areas with the highest mortgage fraud risk on a quarterly basis and offers insights based on the analysis of trends found in residential mortgage loan applications processed by LoanSafe Fraud Manager.

Read the report to learn about:

  • Factors causing increases in fraud risk

    Purchase loans are inherently riskier than refinances, and there was a significant drop in refinances in Q2, compounded with record purchase volumes. Along with additional factors noted in the brief, this trend led to greater fraud risk.
