Mortgage (mis)pricing: The case of co-borrowers

Abstract: This paper provides evidence for a performance differential between loans with one borrower and loans with two borrowers. We argue that the choice of observables considered during the rate adjustment process may lead to mortgage mispricing for loans with co-borrowers. Our findings offer an example of borrower-level information that mortgage lenders collect, which is not used in pricing, but is predictive of performance.
