From the Paper:

"In all economies, one of the most important issues to deal with is finding affordable housing. In order to supply such demand the mortgage industry developed what is known as a sub-prime mortgage. This loan was laced with teaser rates which were well below the key rate and when adjustment were made, usually after five years, the rates could potentially go up by several base points. Agreeably this does not sound like much but to a mortgage loan payee it could be devastating. Of course we should say, "Well didn't they realize that the issue of payment adjustments would occur?" Perhaps they did, but unfortunately, after the prime rate adjusted in July of 2007, several thousand mortgages followed suit. The foreclosure levels soaring to an all time new high were the result. Additionally late payment levels have also spiked and the fear is that the increases represent a brand new and larger group that will be foreclosed on in coming months (Aversa, 2007, p. 2)."
