On bank pricing of single-family residential home loans in Australia

This talk is based on a research that investigated the mortgage pricing practices of lenders in Australia over the September 2008-December 2017 period, in particular, whether the interest rates that Australian lenders were charging on single-family residential home loans over this period were in line with what perfect capital markets would have warranted. The results indicate that actual mortgage rates deviated significantly from efficient mortgage interest rates during this period. The deviations were larger than expected from the theory. These findings have serious implications for housing (un)affordability and mortgage borrowers in general.
