In this research paper, Dr Jenny McArthur proposes a package of solutions to disrupt the speculative cycle, safely lower housing prices, and boost alternative housing provision to meet the diverse needs of New Zealanders.
This research examined the extent to which downsizing forms part of older Australians’ housing preferences, the actual and perceived benefits of moving as well as the availability of downsize housing options. The research proposes a number of policy strategies for delivering housing alternatives to meet...
The supply of affordable private rental housing in Australian cities: short-term and longer-term changes
This research charts the changes in the supply of affordable and available private rental housing for lower income households between 2011 and 2016, and is the latest in a series of projects detailing affordable rental housing supply every five years since 1996 using Census data.
What are the effects of residential building energy performance disclosure policies on property values?
A rapid systematic review of international academic literature suggests that home buyers typically value a more energy efficient home, and when presented with easily accessible information in the form of an energy performance rating, are willing to pay more to live in one.
Various location specific attributes cause segmentation of the housing market into submarkets. The question is, whether the most relevant partitioning criteria are directly related to the transaction price or to other, socio-economic and physical, features of the location. On the empirical side, several methods have...
This thesis develops a beta version of a new agent-based model of the Danish housing market, which is well suited to throw light on a range of aspects concerning business cycles and macro-prudential regulation. In particular, the model is employed to analyze the effects of...
Markets for domestic housing in countries like England differ from other markets because the stock is fixed in the short term, buyers need to raise mortgages to finance their purchases and prices tend to be set through intermediaries (‘estate agents’ or realtors). We introduce an...
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.
Several independent datasets concerning household behavior in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area are combined to create an agent-based model of the recent housing market bubble and its aftermath. Comprehensive data on housing stock attributes, primarily from local government sources, are used as input to the...
The purpose of this thesis is to develop an agent-based model (ABM) of a metropolitan housing market. An ABM is a computational model where the micro-level behavior of agents is simulated in order to analyse macro-level emergent phenomena.
