Columbia University Study on Second Liens Draws from DataQuick Data

DataQuick, a provider of advanced real estate information solutions powered by data, analytics and decisioning, recently contributed to a study published by Columbia University that examines the impact different types of second liens had on both the housing boom and subsequent market collapse.

Written by Donghoon Lee and Joseph Tracy of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Dr. Christopher J. Mayer of the Richman Center for Business, Law and Public Policy at Columbia University’s Business School, “A New Look at Second Liens” examines the extent to which second liens contributed to the housing crisis by allowing buyers to purchase homes with small down payments.

“DataQuick has provided the data and analysis lenders needed to make the best risk and business decisions for many years. We’re pleased our data and analytics solutions are now being used as a resource for important research at prestigious institutions, such as Columbia University,” said John Walsh, president of DataQuick. “DataQuick can provide market insights for any institution that needs current and historical valuation data and analytics.”

The study concluded that default rates of second liens are similar to that of the first lien on the same home, although HELOC loans perform much better than traditional second mortgages. Another key finding was that while 20 to 30 percent of borrowers continue to pay their second lien for more than a year after going delinquent on their first mortgage, these same borrowers were much more likely to remain current on their auto and credit card loans after going delinquent on their first.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
