    Housing Market and Sentiment Analysis

    The housing issue is one of the hottest social problems. It is widely debated by the society. These debates contain a large subjective component. In addition, they are expected to correlate with the phases of the housing cycle. One of the most visible and durable manifestationsof these debates are the media items.

    Owner-Occupied Housing Costs and Monetary Policy: Goals and Challenges for the Euro Area: In-Depth Analysis

    Owner-occupied housing costs represent an important expenditure for households and should be included in the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices. Conceptual and practical challenges must be resolved before this can be implemented. Estimates suggest that these costs would have a small impact on monetary policy. At the same time, different degrees of home ownership in the euro area mean that their inclusion ...

    A Concept for Measuring Real Estate Sustainability from the Investors’ Perspective

    Obwohl die Nachfrage nach nachhaltigen Anlageprodukten steigt und die Regulierung zur Offenlegung von Nachhaltigkeitsaspekten zunimmt, mangelt es auf Seiten der Anleger:innen an Informationen über die Nachhaltigkeit der angebotenen Anlageprodukte. Auch wenn in der Literatur hunderte von ESG-Indikatoren für Standard-Investmentprodukte zur Verfügung stehen, gibt es bisher keinen ganzheitlichen Ansatz ...

    The Hidden Homeownership Welfare State: An International Long-Term Perspective on the Tax Treatment of Homeowners

    Welfare is traditionally understood through social security decommodifying labor markets or social investment policies. In the domain of housing, however, welfare for homeowners is largely hidden in the tax codes’ fiscal exemptions. Based on a content analysis of legislation, this paper introduces a novel yearly database of 37 countries between 1910 and 2020 to uncover the “hidden welfare state” of ...

    Housing Rent Dynamics and Rent Regulation in St. Petersburg (1880–1917)

    This article studies housing rents in St. Petersburg from 1880 to 1917, covering an eventful period of Russian and world history. Digitizing over 5000 rental advertisements, we construct a state-of-the-art index – the first pre-war and pre-Soviet market data index for any Russian city. In 1915, a rent control and tenant protection policy was introduced in response to soaring prices following the outbreak ...

    Rent Price Control – Yet Another Great Equalizer of Economic Inequalities? Evidence from a Century of Historical Data

    The long-run U-shaped patterns of economic inequality are standardly explained by basic economic trends (Piketty’s r>g), taxation policies, or “great levelers,” like catastrophes. This paper argues that housing policy, in particular rent control, is a neglected explanatory factor in understanding overall inequality. We hypothesize that rent control could decrease overall housing wealth, lower incomes ...

    Forward to the Past: Short-Term Effects of the Rent Freeze in Berlin

    In 2020, Berlin enacted a rigorous rent-control policy: the “Mietendeckel” (rent freeze), aiming to stop rapidly growing rental prices. We evaluate this newly enacted but old-fashionably designed policy by analyzing its immediate supply-side effects. Using a rich pool of rent advertisements reporting asking rents and comprehensive dwelling characteristics, we perform hedonic-style Difference-in-Difference ...
