The housing cycle is the business cycle--again

Ed Leamer said so.  I said so.  And I continue to think it so.

Run a simple bi-directional Granger Causality model of change in residential investment and GDP.  It turns out a model with one and three lags best fits the data going back to 1969.  That model's four quarter forecast for GDP growth is 2.6, 2.5, 2.1 and 2.5 percent; for residential investment growth is 6.2, 5.0, 4.9 and 4.9 percent.  (BTW, the model passes the stationarity test).

But residential investment has grown by between 8.5 and 20 percent over the past four quarters.  Let's say that an exogenous shock (kids moving out of their parents' houses) leads residential investment to grow by 10 percent.  The forecast for GDP growth now increases to 2.6, 2.9, 2.6 and 2.9, or about .4 percentage points higher than the baseline case.  This increase in GDP reflects more than the direct impact of residential investment on GDP.

It can be described more roughly by the number of rooms. A studio apartment has a single bedroom with no living room (possibly a separate kitchen istanbul real estate).
A one-bedroom apartment has a living or dining room istanbul property separate from the bedroom. Two bedroom, three bedroom, and larger units are common.
(A bedroom is defined istanbul properties as a room with a closet for clothes storage.)


The size of an apartment or house can be istanbul property described in square feet or meters. In the United States, this istanbul real estate includes the area of "living space",
excluding the garage and other non-living spaces. The "square meters" figure of a house in Europe istanbul properties may report the total area of the walls enclosing the home,
thus including any attached garage and non-living spaces, which makes it important to inquire what kind of surface definition has been used.


In recent years, istanbul real estate many economists have recognized that the lack of
effective real estate laws can be a significant istanbul properties barrier to investment in
many developing countries. In most societies, rich and poor, a significant fraction of the total wealth is in the form of istanbul property land and buildings.

In most advanced economies, the main source of capital istanbul real estate used by
individuals and small companies to purchase and improve land and buildings is mortgage loans (or other instruments). These are loans for which the real property
itself constitutes collateral. Banks are willing to make such loans at favorable rates in large part because,
istanbul property if the borrower does not make payments, the lender can foreclose by
filing a court action which allows them to take back the property and sell it to get their money back. For investors, profitability can be enhanced by using an off
plan or pre-construction strategy to purchase at a lower price which is often the case in the pre-construction istanbul properties phase of development.
