Effects on housing prices of urban attraction and labor market accessibility
Through a hedonic approach this study primarily focuses on how house prices vary systematically with respect to some general spatial structure characteristics in a Norwegian region. The introduction of a gravity based labor market accessibility measure contributes significantly to explain variation in housing prices, also in a model formulation where the distance from the city center is accounted for. Based on these results we suggest a distinction between an urban attraction effect and a labor market accessibility effect. Quantitatively, the two distinct effects are found to contribute about equally to intraregional variation in housing prices.
