A First Look at Older Americans and the Mortgage Crisis

This and Related Reports

Homeowners age 50 and over have been significantly affected by the mortgage crisis, according to this first-ever analysis of data on the mortgage crisis by age. More than 684,000 homeowners age 50 and over were delinquent, were in foreclosure, or lost their homes during the six months ending December 2007. Older African Americans and Hispanics had higher foreclosure rates than whites of all ages.
