CA Credit Risk Model

What it is

The CA Credit Risk Model combines the CA Value AVM, CA’s ZIP Code level home price forecasts, and CA’s mortgage performance models to predict the expected profitability of a mortgage. The main output of the CR Model is the Credit Risk Spread, which is a measure of the risk of default embedded in a residential mortgage. This can be used to help lenders set the interest rate that should be charged for a particular loan and is based upon the loan to value ratio of the loan, the borrower’s credit risk score and other loan and property traits.


The CA Credit Risk Model is available through the CA website, XML delivery or batch requests.
