Modelling Mortgage Terminations in Turbulent Times
AbstractTechniques used to predict mortgage defaults during a relatively stable period proved less successful during the turbulent financial cycle of the early 1980s. An alternative specification of the relationship between defaults, homeowner equity, and interest-rate movements better captures the effect of interest rates on default probability. Results confirm the powerful effect of equity on mortgage defaults and the strong, but asymmetric, influence of interest rates on both defaults and prepayments. The new specification allows direct measurement of the interest-rate effect on defaults, distinguishing the effect when rates rise or fall.
