Abstract: This paper investigates spillovers between the housing sentiment index of Bork et al. (2020), common factors in US real housing returns and their volatility (derived from a time-varying dynamic factor model with stochastic volatility), GDP growth and real interest rates, using the time-varying parameter vector autoregressive version of the Diebold and Yilmaz (2012, 2014) methodology. We find that in contrast to spillovers from the common factor in housing returns, reverse spillovers are relatively weak. Net spillovers from the common factor of housing returns to housing sentiment and GDP increase durably after the Global Financial Crisis. This suggests that, while a shock to housing prices is likely to have a significant impact on housing sentiment and the economy, a purely exogenous shock to housing sentiment, may in itself have little impact on housing returns and volatility.
