Construction of a Transaction Based Real Estate Index for the Paris Housing Market
In this paper, we calculate a transaction based price index for apartments in Paris (France). The heterogeneous character of real estate is taken into account by using an econometric model. The functional form is specified by using a general Box/Cox-function. The data base covers about 65% of the housing market in 1990-1999. Correction for incomplete data leads to a sample of 84 686 transactions. This sample is by far the largest ever used in comparable studies, and is therefore internationally an unique data coverage for housing markets.
