FHA’s Financial Condition Worsens; Denial Dial Reset to Lowest Level Ever.
One in six Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans was delinquent in June as the total delinquency rate increased to 16.61 percent. This was due almost entirely to a jump in thirty- and sixty-day delinquencies. The serious delinquency rate ticked up to 9.48 percent.

The FHA’s estimated net worth on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis has declined by $6 billion since the end of FY 2011. In June, the FHA had an estimated current net worth of –$23.23 billion and a capital shortfall of $43–62 billion. As a result, the Denial Dial has been reset to –2.16%, eclipsing the previous low set in January 2012.
