Abstract: Changes in macroeconomic conditions can significantly determine directions and magnitudes of cross-country housing price movements. We demonstrate that such effects are consistently over-estimated when ‘spatial frictions’ are merely assumed, but are not explicitly modeled in the empirical framework. The extent of over-estimation bias has significant policy implications.
