The formation of offer prices in farmland markets: A hedonic price approach
AbstractThis study develops a game-theoretic framework to examine the preservation and capitalization effects of government farmland preservation policies. More specifically, emphasis is given to the effects of such policies on the number and type of land buyers, the distribution of offer price, and the mean waiting period. The results suggest that, in the context of the agricultural zoning policy, the final impact on the reservation price and mean waiting period depends on the magnitude of changes in the number and spread of the type of buyers.
