‘I’Ll Have What She’S Having:’ Neighbors Socially Influence Households’ Mortgage Decisions
We use over one million precisely geolocated mortgages and a nearest-neighbor research design and find that households’ mortgage decisions are inﬂuenced by their hyperlocal neighbors, consistent with a word-of-mouth mechanism. We also find evidence that households relatively higher in value on a block are more socially influenced than other block-peers.
