Workshop on Residential Housing Markets: Perceptions and Measurement

WORKSHOP ON RESIDENTIAL HOUSING MARKETS:  PERCEPTIONS AND MEASUREMENT

What do we actually measure when assessing housing sales and rent prices? The outcome of a market matching processes truly driven by supply and demand? Observed prices are also affected by policies in place, e.g., rent control or policies supporting home-ownership, hampering international comparisons, as well as measurement issues whenever relying on “close-to-market-prices” originating from appraisals, advertisements or surveys. Better understanding the type and source of bias potentially inherent in such data may, however, also provide additional opportunities for researchers to measure beliefs and attitudes affecting the person providing the data.

This workshop thus aims to bring together researches working on topical issues related to residential housing markets making use of diverse data sources.

Call for Special Issue Papers: Property value analysis using ZTRAX

Call for Special Issue Papers:
Property value analysis using ZTRAX – Applications under the Approaching Sunset
Journal of Housing Economics and Land Economics

The ZTRAX database from Zillow has allowed researchers in environmental, housing, regional, urban, and related fields in economics to study property markets at broad spatial and temporal scales. However, the access sunset of ZTRAX scheduled for September 2023 has created time urgency among researchers for finishing projects and publishing papers. In recognition of this firm deadline the editors of Land Economics (LE) and Journal of Housing Economics (JHE) are teaming up to offer coordinated special issues of the two journals that will (a) feature property value studies that exploit the large spatial and temporal scales of ZTRAX data; and (b) adhere to a schedule that completes the review process prior to the approaching deadline.

Papers should explore methodological and policy-relevant topics that demonstrate the opportunities of large spatial and time scale sales data that cannot be accomplished with a few years of sales data for one or two communities, counties, or housing markets. Papers that merge ZTRAX data with environmental, social, and other types of large scale spatial and temporal data to enhance estimation insights are encouraged. Papers that compare estimation with ZTRAX to other large scale spatial and temporal property sales data will be considered.
