The Real Price of Housing and Money Supply Shocks: Time Series Evidence and Theoretical Simulations
William Lastrapes ()
Working Papers from Georgia - College of Business Administration, Department of Economics
I estimate the dynamic responses of owner-occupied housing prices to money supply shocks, and compare these responses to those predicted by a dynamic equilibrium model of the housing market. The empirical responses are identified from general sets of restrictions that are consistent with a wide class of theoretical models. Using monthly data, I find that money shocks have real effects on the housing market: both relative housing prices and real sales rise in the short-run in response to positive shocks to the money supply. The estimated price responses closely match the predictions of the theoretical model for reasonable values of the theoretical parameters.
