Discussion Paper
Foreclosure externalities: some new evidence

In a recent set of influential papers, researchers have argued that residential mortgage foreclosures reduce the sale prices of nearby properties. We revisit this issue using a more robust identification strategy combined with new data that contain information on the location of properties secured by seriously delinquent mortgages and information on the condition of foreclosed properties. We find that while properties in virtually all stages of distress have statistically significant, negative effects on nearby home values, the magnitudes are economically small, peak before the distressed ...

Working Paper
Endogenous gentrification and housing price dynamics

Discussion Paper
The affordable housing shortage: considering the problem, causes and solutions

Many observers claim that we are in the midst of an affordable housing shortage or, even worse, an affordable housing crisis. The primary concern is that too many households live in unaffordable rental units. We hope to clarify the current debate by first measuring the size of the problem, then diagnosing its underlying causes and, finally, discussing treatments that policymakers should consider.
