IRVINE, Calif., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreLogic (CLGX), a leading
residential property information, analytics and services provider, reported
today that the overall shadow inventory is down 28 percent from its peak in
January 2010, when it reached 3 million homes. Current residential shadow
inventory as of January 2013 was at 2.2 million units, representing a supply
of nine months. This figure represents an 18-percent drop from January 2012*,
when shadow inventory stood at 2.6 million units.

CoreLogic estimates the current stock of properties in the shadow inventory,
also known as pending supply, by calculating the number of properties that are
seriously delinquent, in foreclosure and held as real estate owned (REO) by
mortgage servicers, but not currently listed on multiple listing services
(MLSs). Transition rates of "delinquency to foreclosure" and "foreclosure to
REO" are used to identify the currently distressed unlisted properties most
likely to become REO properties. Properties that are not yet delinquent, but
may become delinquent in the future, are not included in the estimate of the
current shadow inventory. Shadow inventory is typically not included in the
official reporting measurements of unsold inventory.

"The shadow inventory continued to drop at double the rate in January from
prior-year levels. At this point in the recovery, we are seeing healthy
reductions across much of the nation," said Anand Nallathambi, president and
CEO of CoreLogic. "As we move forward in 2013, we need to see more progress in
Florida, New York, California, Illinois and New Jersey which now account for
almost half of the country's remaining shadow inventory."

"The shadow inventory is declining steadily as properties are moving through
the distressed pipeline," said Dr. Mark Fleming, chief economist for
CoreLogic. "States like Arizona, California and Colorado are experiencing
significant declines year over year in the stock of serious delinquencies, a
positive sign for further improvement in the shadow inventory."

Data Highlights as of January 2013:

  oAs of January 2013, shadow inventory was at 2.2 million units, or nine
    months' supply, and represented 85 percent of the 2.6 million properties
    currently seriously delinquent, in foreclosure or REO.
  oOf the 2.2 million properties currently in the shadow inventory (Figures 1
    and 2), 1 million units are seriously delinquent (4.1 months' supply),
    798,000 are in some stage of foreclosure (3.2 months' supply) and 342,000
    are already in REO (1.4 months' supply).
  oThe value of shadow inventory was $350 billion as of January 2013, down
    from $402 billion a year ago and down from $381 billion six months ago.
  oOver the twelve months ending January 2013, serious delinquencies, which
    are the main driver of the shadow inventory, declined the most in Arizona
    (40 percent), California(33 percent), Colorado (27 percent), Michigan (25
    percent) and Wyoming (23 percent).
  oAs of January 2013, Florida, California, New York, Illinois and New Jersey

CoreLogic uses its Loan Performance Servicing and Securities databases to size
the number of 90+ day delinquencies, foreclosures and real estate owned (REO)
properties. Cure rates, which measure the proportion of loans in one stage of
default that cured (versus moving to more severe states of default), are
applied to the number of loans in default at each stage of default. CoreLogic
calculates the share of loans in default that are currently listed on MLS by
matching public record properties in default to MLS active listings. It
applies the percentage of defaulted loans that are currently listed to the
estimate of outstanding loans that will proceed to further stages of default
to calculate the pending supply inventory and adds that to the reported
visible inventory. Visible inventory is compiled from CoreLogic ListingTrends.
To determine months' supply for visible and shadow inventories, CoreLogic uses
the number of non-seasonally adjusted home sales according to CoreLogic data.
