This paper presents findings from a study that includes a new investigation of the Tarikaka settlement in Wellington, New Zealand. The housing settlement was constructed in 1928-29 by the Department of Railways with the houses rented to their workers.
This paper locates the origins of New Zealand’s low-density urban settlement pattern or sprawl in capitalist social relations and the cultural practices of the first settlers during the 1840s and 1850s. While the grid plans of towns conveyed notions of order and regularity, the commercial...
This study applies discrete choice models for analysing travel and location choice behaviour of different populations in a suburban rail corridor. The models developed in the study provide flexible structures in estimating the interactive relationships of variables across individuals and alternatives in housing preferences. Statistically...
Airbnb in Melbourne: how does the existing urban spatial structure shape the location of short-term accommodation sharing economy activity?
Airbnb is a short-term accommodation in the sharing economy platform that has become increasingly prevalent since its inception in 2008. Despite the growth of Airbnb, limited research has been focussed on understanding how this facet of the sharing economy interacts with the existing urban spatial...
Dynamics in the housing market can be simulated using agent-based modelling. Focusing on the theme of urban regeneration, we present a housing market model framework which explores the causal relationships that occur in this market.
A neural network based model for real estate price estimation considering environmental quality of property location
In this paper, a model based on Artificial Neural Network (ANN) has been applied to real estate appraisal. Moreover, an evaluation of ANN performances in estimating the sale price of residential properties has been carried out. Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are useful in modelling input-output...
This report discusses housing in Aboriginal Town Camps in the Northern Territory, and a parliamentary inquiry that examined two housing models operated by the Northern Territory government.
This paper develops a comprehensive measure of the gap between housing supply and demand at a regional level in Australia, taking into account a range of complicating factors, such as changing demographics, building types and the increase in unoccupied dwellings at the regional level.
If rural and regional areas are to counteract the historical ‘pull to cities’ and compete with the dynamics of agglomeration, higher wages, greater employment opportunities and levels of services, then having a reliable supply of affordable, quality ‘to-buy’ and rental housing will play a key...
This report attempts to paint an overall picture of social housing need in New Zealand and the building response needed to address this.
