Appariements sur le Marché du Logement

Cet article souhaite contribuer à une théorie du marché du logement locatif où les frictions de recherche sont rendues endogènes par une fonction d’appariement entre propriétaires et locataires potentiels. Le loyer est déterminé par une négociation à la Nash entre propriétaires et locataires ou choisi par le propriétaire ex ante. L’introduction de frictions de recherche modifie largement les résultats traditionnels et la statique comparative de l’état stationnaire est menée dans cette perspective. On étudie, notamment, un équilibre de court terme (le cas d’une ville fermée) et un autre de moyen terme (le cas d’une ville ouverte où l’offre de logements est fixe et les travailleurs libres d’entrer, ou non, sur le marché). Dans les deux cas, on discute les conséquences d’une taxation des appartements vacants. On retrouve un résultat relativement général en présence de frictions importantes : les mesures qui tendent à protéger les agents d’un certain type (employés, locataires) le font au détriment de ceux qui aspirent à accéder à ce statut (chômeurs, personnes ayant des difficultés à se loger).
