Housing Investment in the United States
AbstractA supply-determined model of housing investment is estimated from quarterly data over the 1963-83 period. The model is built on dynamic marginal cost pricing considerations and allows short- and long-run supply elasticities to differ. These are estimated as 1.0 and 3.0, respectively, but most of the long-run response occurs within one year. Rapid adjustment speed and the sizable long-run elasticity of supply are important factors in understanding the volatility of housing investment. The data also suggest some anomalies in the expected present value theory of asset pricing for housing capital. Copyright 1988 by University of Chicago Press.
