and 15 BPS worse than the second-quarter 2017.

home-equity lines of credit, the 30-day rate inched up a basis point to 1.15 percent. However, HELOC delinquency was off by a basis point from mid-2017.
Mobile home delinquency improved 2 BPS to 5.07 percent. But the rate has soared 59 BPS on a year-over-year basis.
Of all real estate-related credit types, property improvement loans had the biggest delinquency decline: 9 BPS to 1.07 percent. Still, the rate remained 3 BPS higher than the report from a year ago.
Chessen added, “Home-related delinquencies are back down to pre-recession levels.”
