Modelling Spatial Housing Markets: Theory, Analysis and by Geoffrey Meen

By Geoffrey Meen

Spatial fixity is likely one of the features that distinguishes housing from such a lot different items and companies within the financial system. generally, housing can't be moved from one a part of the rustic to a different in keeping with shortages or excesses particularly parts. The modelling of housing markets and the interlinkages among markets at assorted spatial degrees - foreign, nationwide, neighborhood and concrete - are the most issues of this book.
A moment significant subject matter is disaggregation, not just when it comes to area, but in addition among families. The booklet argues that combination time-series types of housing markets of the kind commonplace in Britain and likewise in different international locations some time past became much less suitable in a global of accelerating source of revenue dispersion. generally, combination relationships will holiday down, other than below specific stipulations. we will now not think that conventional situation or tenure styles, for instance, will proceed sooner or later.
The ebook has 4 major parts. First, it discusses developments in housing markets either the world over and inside international locations. moment, the booklet develops theoretical housing types at each one spatial scale, beginning with nationwide versions, relocating all the way down to the neighborhood point and, then, to city versions. 3rd, the ebook presents empirical estimates of the versions and, eventually, the versions are used for coverage research. research levels over a large choice of subject matters, together with factors for differing foreign apartment rate tendencies, the explanations of housing cycles, the function of credits markets, local housing industry interactions and the function of housing in urban/suburban inhabitants drift.

Example text

The US literature shows a broader range of concerns. Nevertheless, chronologically, four classes of price model may be identified in the literature; early ad hoc models which contained only limited theoretical structure, - mark-up models which related house prices to construction costs, reduced form models, derived from structural housing demand and supply equations, - life-cycle models. The first class of ad hoc studies began to appear in the UK during the early seventies, primarily as a response to the boom in prices in the 1972173 period.

Leishman (2000), for example, shows that in local housing market areas across the West of Scotland, simple averages of prices are heavily biased compared with quality-adjusted measures. Nevertheless, it is still interesting to compare price movements across what might be considered integrated labour market areas. For the UK, Nationwide Building Society data distinguish between London, the Outer Metropolitan area and the Outer South East12, each of which are within the London commuter belt. However, Nationwide data do not suggest that prices have risen by similar amounts over the long term.

Rosenthal (1986) adopts a different approach using cross-spectral methods to examine the long-run and short-run relationships between house prices. Although the study uses monthly data, it has the disadvantage that the sample only covers the period 1975-81, which includes only one major cyclical peak. e. regional prices move together in the long run, but at high frequencies (the shorter term) distinct, consistent patterns in the spatial leads and lags are less evident. The South East does not appear convincingly as the driving force for prices in the other regions.
