House Price Increases and US City Migration Networks

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University

In this presentation, Gregor Schubert will discuss his research indicating that when local economic shocks and housing supply constraints combine to drive up house prices in one region they also spur out-migration to other regions. These migration flows are more likely to affect regions with stronger pre-existing migration links to the origin areas, and therefore lead to increased house prices in the destination areas.
