  • Abstract

    Based on the RWI-GEO-RED data that base on the data provided by ImmobilienScout24 hedonic housing price indices are conducted. The indices are on the district and municipality level (Gemeindeverbaende). We conduct a hedonic price regression that covers characteristics of the object as well as regional fixed effects. The hedonic regression is estimated separately for houses for sale and apartments for rent. There are three different specifications: the overall time development; cross-regional differences for each year separately and time development within one region.
