Non-recourse mortgage is a loan product that allows lenders to claim only the collateral when the debtor is in default. Therefore, the debtor can protect his income and assets by exercising non-recourse right. This implies that non-recourse mortgage rate must be bigger than recourse mortgage rate as much as the value of non-recourse right. Non-recourse right can be comprehended as a kind of American-type put option with its exercise price the loan balance of the mortgage. This study estimates the non-recourse mortgage rate using American and Bermuda option pricing models and identifies factors affecting the additional interest rate due to non-recourse right. Our empirical results are summarized as follows.
First, as the price volatility of mortgage collateral and the loan to value (LTV) ratio as its exercise price increased, the additional interest rate increased exponentially. This indicates that the price volatility of basis asset and LTV ratio are the most influential factors. The additional interest rate increased gradually according to the loan maturity and also increased linearly in proportion to the recourse mortgage rate. Second, we introduced the exogenous variable of default delay level to the Bermuda option model and then estimated the strategic default delay level which made the Bermuda option value equal to the American option value of non-recourse right. From the result, we found that unless the intrinsic value of put option was bigger than 10% of the loan balance, it was advantageous to hold the option right than to exercise it. Also, we found that the delay of default was strengthened as the price volatility of basis asset increased. Third, we estimated additional interest rates using real estate data in South Korea. As the result, we found that additional interest rates were relatively high in Gangnam area of Seoul on the location, in large-sized houses on the scale, and in apartments on the type of house.
