Determinants of House Prices in Nine Asia-Pacific Economies

by Eloisa T. Glindroa, Tientip Subhanijb, Jessica Szetoc and Haibin Zhud

Abstract

The paper investigates the characteristics of house price dynamics and the role of institutional factors in nine Asia-Pacific economies during 19932006. On average, house prices tend to be more volatile in markets with lower supply elasticity and a more flexible business environment. At the national level, the current run-up in house prices mainly reflects adjustment to improved fundamentals rather than speculative housing bubbles. However, evidence of bubbles does exist in some market segments.
