Housing Markets, Prices, and Policies

Housing markets differ from other types of markets because housing is not a commodity, and because other factors are included with a housing purchase or rental, including taxes, transportation systems, schools, and neighborhood facilities. This chapter from The Oxford Handbook of Urban Economics and Planning explains housing markets and policies in detail. It shares information about why different cities and metropolitan areas have different housing markets. The chapter also examines measurement considerations for house prices, rent prices, and house price bubbles. In addition, it considers U.S housing policy, segregation, discrimination, land-use regulation, and taxes.
