MN Housing Partnership - 2x4 Report

The Minnesota Housing Partnership has recently released its updated report (known as the "2 x 4 Report") that studies two indicators for each of four key housing areas:

  • the home ownership market,
  • the rental market,
  • homelessness, and
  • the housing industry.

The report is a great resource for housing information, and is designed to provide a concise, easy-to-digest, graphic overview of the state of housing in the state of Minnesota.

The complete report is available here.

Focusing on the "Owners' Market" segment of their report, it shows that just over 7% of primary (first lien) mortgages were delinquent in the second quarter of 2009 - up from about 6% in the fourth quarter of 2008.

When taken in combination with the increase in pre-foreclosure notices that we highlighted in our post on Tuesday (Pre-Foreclosure Notices, September 2009) we repeat can our assessment from Tuesday: MN still has a LONG way to go before we reach the end of the foreclosure crisis.
