Abstract: At some stage in every household's family life cycle, the household is likely to make certain decisions with regard to its housing environment. Although the household's housing decisions essentially comprise the decision to move, and the selection of a new residence, the process from which these decisions are derived is very complex because varying circumstances could produce a multitude of different housing decisions. Due to the sheer complexity of the household's housing decision-making process, researchers have generally focused on individual decision-making stages rather than on the process as a whole. This paper therefore attempts to conceptualize the entire household housing decision-making process using theoretical concepts from the economic perspective, and then tests the conceptual model with empirical evidence drawn from the moving population within the multi-racial society in Singapore.
