Goodman, Allen C. and Brent C. Smith, “Residential Mortgage Default: Theory
Works and So does Policy,” Using a national loan level data set we examine
loan default as explained by local demographic characteristics and state
level legislation that regulates foreclosure procedures and predatory
lending, using a hierarchical linear model.When controlling for loan and local
conditions, we observe significant variation in the default rate across
states, with lower default levels in states with higher temporal and
financial costs to lenders.State
level legislative influences provide a foundation for discussion of
national level policy that further regulates predatory lending and
financial institution foreclosure activities.“Hierarchical Modeling of Residential Default: DoesState Level Foreclosure and Predatory Lending
Legislation Limit Bad Loans?” Journal
of Housing Economics, 19 (2010): 280-294.
