Strategic defaults lure more homeowners despite risks – 09/11/10
From the article: People who have studied the phenomenon worry it could further depress the real estate market. "There is evidence that the more people you know have done a strategic default, the more likely you are to strategically default," said Paola Sapienza, a professor of finance at Northwestern University who co-authored a study about strategic defaults last year. Sapienza called it a "contagion effect," as the stigma of losing one's home to foreclosure is erased, and people say, "Look I've done it, and I'm fine." Even where banks can, it appears they aren't suing homeowners for deficiency judgments, Sapienza said.
