Home buyers' characteristics and selling prices

Abstract

This study examines the relationship between home buyers' characteristics and selling prices. Using survey on home buyers and the 1990 Multiple Listing Service data on single-family housing transactions in the Reno-Sparks area in Nevada, this study finds that home buyers play a significant role on housing price determination. For a given type of house, higher income home buyers would pay higher prices than lower income home buyers and first-time home buyers would pay lower prices than repeat home buyers.
