Transcript

  • 1. Why Are the Several States Experiencing High Foreclosure Rates?:<br />An Analysis of Arizona, California, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Montana, and Nevada<br />
  • 2. Introduction:<br />In 2009-2010 thousands of Americans are having their mortgages foreclosed.<br />The credit markets are seizing up, and the housing markets are unstable.<br />Similar to foreclosure crisis in the 1890s and 1930s, as long as confidence is lacking in the credit markets, and housing markets are messy, economic recovery is unlikely.<br />Why are foreclosures occurring? My hypothesis is that we need a state-by-state solution, because different states are experiencing high foreclosure rates for different reasons.<br />
  • 3. Literature Review<br />According to Haughwout, Okah, and Tracy (2009), mortgage delinquencies beginning in 2007 have led to policy attempts to solve the problem.<br />
  • 4. Economic Analysis<br />The amount of housing counseling grants was substituted for foreclosure rates.<br />Predictor variables were the 30 year mortgage rate, unemployment rate, high school dropout rate, and the CPI.<br />The data was placed in Excel and a regression was run for the predictor variables as a whole, and then for each predictor individually. <br />For the purposes of this paper, a high correlation implies that a predictor is the culprit in causing foreclosure.<br />
  • 5. Overall Correlation<br />
  • 6. Arizona Correlation<br />
  • 7. California Correlation<br />
  • 8. Florida Correlation<br />
  • 9. Indiana Correlation<br />
  • 10. Michigan Correlation<br />
  • 11. Montana Correlation<br />
  • 12. Nevada<br />
  • 13. Conclusion<br />Unfortunately, available data was not optimal.<br />More causes of foreclosure would have made the study more interesting.<br />Based on results, though, thesis was proven; different states do have different causes of foreclosure.<br />Therefore, any attempt to tackle the foreclosure crisis should be crafted on a state-by-state basis.<br />Hopefully policy makers will come to the same conclusion, and realize a one-fix-all approach will be unsuccessful and wasteful.<br />
