In this paper, we describe the construction of estimates of private real estate capital for each of 242 MSAs, annually, for 1982 through 1994. We compute three such series: (1) total private real estate capital (residential and nonresidential); (2) private single-family residential capital; and (3) private income property capital (multifamily housing plus nonresidential real estate , or (1) less (2)). We then model the determinants of each series, and use the results to predict the value of the capital stock for a larger set of 295 MSAs.
