Risk and the User Cost of Housing Services
AbstractThis paper derives a risk-adjusted user cost for housing services, capable of application in price indexes, demand, and the measurement of income and returns to homeownership. The risk-adjusted user cost is the after-tax sum of an interest rate and a risk premium, less expected capital gains. Expected capital gains are based on a factor pricing specification. It is shown that both national and local factors affect capital gains on housing. Copyright American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association.
