The number of homeowners who think they are likely to miss or be late on a mortgage payment in the next few months is at its highest level in over a year.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 12% of homeowners say they are likely to miss or be late on a house payment in the next six months, up from eight percent (8%) in October and the highest finding since September 2013. This overall finding includes six percent (6%) who think it is Very Likely. But 84% say they are unlikely to miss or be late on a payment, with 60% who say it is Not At All Likely.
