    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    What does the term "housing market" mean? The housing market, also referred to as the real estate market brings together a wide range of attendees, including homeowners who are selling their properties, renters, real estate investors who buy and sell properties solely for investment purposes, construction companies, renovators, as well as real estate brokers who serve as mediators in the process of buying or selling a property. What is meant by the phrase "housing market"? The housing market, also known as the real estate market, attracts a diverse group of participants, including property owners selling their homes, renters, real estate investors who buy and sell homes solely for investment purposes, building firms, renovators, as well as real estate brokers who act as middlemen in the buying or selling of a home.

    The choice between flexible and fixed communities affects the housing market's characteristics. The frontier models assume that land is infinitely available at a fixed or no cost, making the land market irrelevant. Services related to housing simply merge into the composite good. In contrast, a fixed community model might make the real estate market a key component, especially if the number of dwelling sites is fixed. A real estate market also makes it possible to pay for local public services locally using property taxes. Typically, the functioning of housing markets precludes a fixed community economy from reaching its first-best optimum. This is particularly true for models that also include property taxes because the property tax is frequently considered in federalism research as a levy that hinders economic activity.
