Abstract: This study applies time-varying parameter methods to investigate the association of foreign capital inflows with the occurrence of house price booms in a sample of emerging markets. The time-varying causality tests show evidence of unidirectional as well as bi-directional causality between gross foreign capital inflows and house prices. Furthermore, the upward evolution of the time-varying impact of foreign capital inflows on house prices appears to be mostly related to the distinct episodes of the housing booms as shown by the results of time-varying parameter regression. However, there are instances where the time-varying impact of foreign capital inflows abruptly shifts upward without causing price booms in the housing market. We also find evidence that some components of foreign capital inflows are negatively affecting house prices during the boom episodes.
