The percent of delinquent mortgages in Charleston is 4.6%, which is lower than the national value of 6.4%. With U.S. home values having fallen by more than 20% nationally from their peak in 2007 until their trough in late 2011, many homeowners are now underwater on their mortgages, meaning they owe more than their home is worth. The percent of Charleston homeowners underwater on their mortgage is 14.6%, which is lower than Charleston Metro at 17.1%.
