Abstract

This paper presents evidence on the factors influencing the housing improvement expenditures of urban homeowners. In comparison to prior work, a more completely specified model was estimated. In particular, variables measuring the price of inputs and neighborhood quality were included and found to have a statistically significant impact on the maintenance and improvement expenditures of central city homeowners.
