Error correction dynamics of house prices: an equilibrium benchmark
Charles Leung ()
No 177, Globalization Institute Working Papers from Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
Central to recent debates on the \"mis-pricing\" in the housing market and the proactive policy of central bank is the determination of the \"fundamental house price.\" This paper builds a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model that produces reduced-form dynamics that are consistent with the error-correction models proposed by Malpezzi (1999) and Capozza et al (2004). The dynamics of equilibrium house prices are tied to the dynamics of the house-price-to-income ratio. This paper also shows that house prices and incomes should be co-integrated, and hence provides a justification of using co-integration tests to detect possible \"mis-pricing\" in the housing market.
