Recent Developments in the Economics of Housing

Edited by Yannis M. Ioannides, Max and Herta Neubauer Chair and Professor of Economics, Tufts University, US
This collection compiles the most significant and contemporary literary contributions to the field of the economics of housing. Volume one includes articles that cover the housing markets demand and supply whilst considering these factors interactions on real estate valuations, home ownership and wealth decisions. Volume two focuses on the interfaces that occur from the dynamics of neighbourhoods and housing prices. It delves into how housing markets and their modeling have attracted particular policy interest, such as rent control, and concludes with thorough recent analyses of housing markets through a lens that emphasizes the importance of frictions, namely the Diamond-Mortensen-Pissarides (DMP) model. Tied together by an original introduction by the editor, this collection promises to be an informative read to scholars and academics immersed in this fascinating topic.
