Cost, Value, and Hybrid-Based Underwriting Criteria
This study examines the correlation between loan-to-value ratios and probability of default, and tests alternative cost-based default models, using data from the portfolios of FSLIC and a major regional lender. The theoretical premises for the research are synthesized from a review of the linkages between supply and demand for space, and for capital; and of the appraisal process and its reliability. Two major conclusions are drawn from statistical evidence: (1) there is no apparent correlation between value-based underwriting criteria and between default, and (2) hard cost-based criteria correlate closely to probability of default.
