Optimal Mortgage Refinancing: A Closed Form Solution

Sumit Agarwal (), John Driscoll () and David Laibson ()

No 13487, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: We derive the first closed-form optimal mortgage refinancing rule. The expression is derived by using the Lambert-W function to solve a tractable class of mortgage refinancing problems. We calibrate our solution and show that our quantitative results closely match those reported by researchers who use numerical methods.
