This will, for a given initial value, be lower the higher the intervening housing service flows are. 4 The second aspect we consider is that the option to default is an element of the strategy set of the borrower. He controls the timing of its exercise, and will do so in his own best interest. A lender would prefer the borrower to follow a policy of defaulting at the last moment the loan could be fully repaid by the liquidated property serving as collateral. If, however, there is some chance the property might rise in value, the borrower will generally prefer to postpone the irreversible exercise of his option to default, especially if the mortgage loan payments are less than the value of the housing service flows from the collateral.

These option-based models generate predictions for default based on the current value of housing relative to the discounted value of future mortgage payments. 13 Our paper differs from these in analysing the option to default, possessed by the borrower, in a strategic setting, in which borrower and lender play a well-defined game. By explicitly analyzing the lender's best response to the borrower's default option, as well as analyzing the optimal timing of borrower default as a best-response to the contract offered by the lender, our model enlarges the option-based literature on mortgage termination to include the endogenous response of the supply of mortgage credit to both the strategic timing of default or prepayment by the borrower, and simultaneously to the characteristics of the collateral offered by the borrower, in a perfect equilibrium.
