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.
