"At the top of the list is West Virginia, where average mortgage debt hovers at $114,583 . Tops for mortgage debt, unsurprisingly, is California, where residents hold an average debt of $347,652."
The report pointed out that Alabama's average mortgage debt rate rose 5.18% from 2016 to 2017 according to data from Experian.
