Mortgage market information

For those of you interested in gaining a better understanding of the mortgage market and what is going on recently, I’d like to recommend some great resources.

First is an extremely thorough report by CreditSuisse. It covers the mortgage market in detail and makes some predictions about how things may turn out. It’s 67 pages long, but there is a 10 page summary that will give you a flavor of their findings. http://www.billcara.com/CS%20Mar%2012%202007%20Mortgage%20and%20Housing.pdf

A more narrowly focused website that takes the subprime market to task is: www.lenderimplode.com. According to this website, 44 subprime lenders have exited the market.

A friend of mine, Bill Moyer, CFA, recommended the following blogs with additional information on lenders and the housing market:

www.wallstreetexaminer.com

I found calculatedrisk to be particularly informative and thorough.
