Abstract

The paper investigates which impact housing costs have upon the tenure choice of households. In using the German “Einkommens- und Verbrauchsstichprobe 1993” a rich amount of both, individual household and dwelling data is available. By means of regression analysis hedonic rental costs and hedonic market values are estimated. The use of hedonic values guarantees the comparability of renters and owner occupiers.
