Interest rate elasticity of residential housing prices

Abstract. We examine the interest rate elasticity of housing prices, advancingthe empirical literature in two directions. First, we take a commonly used cross-country panel dataset and evaluate the housing price equation using a consistent estimator in the presence of endogenous explanatory variables and a lagged dependent variable.

Second, we carry-out a novel analysis of determinants of residential

This paper argues that the decline in long-term real interest rates contributed to rising house prices and the inelastic supply response during the long upswing, and that cyclical asymmetries inherent in the supply response have been exacerbated by changes in the financial system and increased government regulation of the planning process. The housing market relies very heavily on supply and demand. Housing demand and low supplies normally cause prices to rise. Prices drop when there is low demand and a larger supply of homes on the House prices and interest rates. Interest rates are an increasingly important determinant of the demand for housing. A small fall in interest rates can trigger a large increase in the demand for property. Lower interest rates lead to lower mortgage rates, and encourage new entrants as well people looking to buy second homes as an investment. Abstract.

Understand how rate changes can affect home prices and learn how you can keep up. the Federal Reserve to raise or lower short-term interest rates. The price of Fed Funds futures is also an Typically, thus, the interest elasticity of housing demand is a negative number, indicating that higher interest rates result in lower housing demand, other things being equal.

This behavioral response rep-resents the reduction in loan size of the marginal bunching individual. Scaling this response by an appropriate measure of the change in the e ective interest rate yields an estimate of the interest rate elasticity of mortgage demand.
