Abstract We consider the market for an indivisible quality good, in the tradition of standard hedonic equilibrium theory but replacing the commonly used quasi-linear assumption on consumers’ preferences by a more realistic nonlinear budget constraint. Taking advantage of quasi-linearity on the producer’s side, we prove that an optimal transport-like argument can still be used to derive existence of equilibria. We also discuss some simple one-dimensional examples.
