  • 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 for houses for sale. The index is given by an estimation that captures the time, regional independent development and the regional, time independent component of the real estate data in Germany separatly. The declared regional, time independent effect is determined as a fixed effect of the hedonic function.

    ImmobilienScout24 is the largest listing website for real estate in Germany offeringr residential as well as commercial properties. Only residential properies are used for the estimated priceindices. Moreover, offers that were deactivated temporarily (possibly because a buyer or renter was found but the contract has not yet been signed) or updated are only used as the last version published online. The questionnaire filled in by vendor does not contain compulsory statements as far as equipment of the property is concerned. The price for the property is given by the vendor save for some few exceptions. It has to be kept in mind that the data set includes advertising prices only, not transaction prices.
