The Price-Volume Relationships between the Existing and the Pre-Sales Housing Markets in Taiwan
In Taiwan, the housing market can be separated into the existing housing market and the pre-sales market. The existing market can be regarded as the stock market, and the pre-sales market the flow market. However, some unique characteristics exist in the Taiwan market. Based on these characteristics, we modified the conventional housing stock-flow model to describe the price-volume relationship between the existing and pre-sales markets. Empirical models are constructed to test the relationship. Major findings are: 1) both the pre-sales price and the existing price converge to the long-run equilibrium; however, the pre-sales price adjusts faster than the existing price, implying that the existence of the pre-sales system improves market efficiency; and 2) housing supply from the pre-sales market responds to the housing market surpluses/shortages.
