The Core Mortgage Risk Index increased 4.4% in the second quarter, reflecting the pressures of rising delinquency and foreclosure rates and slow price appreciation, according to First American CoreLogic, a Sacramento, Calif.-based provider of mortgage risk assessment and fraud prevention systems.The index is "increasingly driven by the fallout caused by high delinquency rates in the subprime and alt-A markets," the company said. CoreLogic listed the five U.S. markets currently most at risk as Detroit-Livonia-Dearborn, Mich.; Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills, Mich.; Memphis; Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, Ohio-Pa.; and Dayton, Ohio.
