''The housing price index and the number of housing units: a surprising co-movement in France''
( 2024, Vol. 44 No.1 )
 
 
We examine the relationship between the evolution of the housing price index and the number of housing units from 1968 to 2015. Using a simultaneous equation framework, we find a positive relationship between housing supply and the housing price index. Our research suggests that there is an analogy between the Braess paradox and the housing problem. We find a positive income elasticity of demand as well as a positive price elasticity of demand that tends to zero.
