|Abstract:||Traditional property price models fail to explain the large price swings observed in housing markets. Recent literature suggests that such phenomena are caused by changes in housing demand of credit/equity constrained households. We attempt to empirically test the equity constraint hypotheses by examining the households' characteristics and their ability to upgrade, using the Singapore residential market as a case study. Our empirical results support the equity constraint hypotheses; younger and credit constrained households are more likely to move when their ability to afford better housing is enhanced. © 2005 Elsevier Inc.
