MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Fewer Wisconsinites are behind on their mortgages, as the state’s housing market continues to heal from the Great Recession.

As of December 31st, about 5.8% of home mortgages in the Badger State were at least 30 days overdue. That’s one-tenth-of-a-percent less than at the end of 2011.

Wisconsin homeowners continue to do better than their national counterparts in keeping up with their mortgages. The national delinquency rate is almost 7.1%.

The national rate is down by almost a half-percentage-point from the previous year – and it’s the lowest since 2008, when the recession began in earnest.
