Sample text

The whole process was predicated on the idea that real estate prices would keep rising. But by 2006, the market began to soften, and then to tumble. All of a sudden, those households who had taken the “new loans” found themselves underwater, owing more on their new houses than the houses were worth. It all turned out to be just a “house of cards”, as the report on US television current affairs program 60 Minutes put it. The problem was that secondary credit markets had not priced and graded many mortgages accurately.

Other products around at that time included the so-called Ninja loans (“no income, no job, no assets”) and “liar” loans (no paperwork check of borrowers’ income). This story, which did not have a happy ending, was played out many times, as hundreds of billions of dollars worth of these loans “reset” to higher monthly payments once the honeymoon period expired. Hence the term “predatory lending”. This is the subprime credit crisis in microcosm. Securitizers then took the new loans and turned them into RMBS, and sold them on the capital market.

For instance, Miceli and Sirmans (2007) examine the link between the holdout problem and urban sprawl, and find that developers attempting land assembly often face a potential holdout problem that raises the cost of development. To minimize this extra cost, developers prefer land whose ownership is less dispersed. This creates a bias toward development at the urban fringe where average lot sizes are larger, resulting in urban sprawl, which may finally help keep housing costs down. Either way, this example illustrates the potential role of land use patterns and metropolitan space pressures.
