This article reports on inflation in residential land prices and possible causes for a sample of metropolitan areas. Prices for standard lots and acreage were collected for 1975 and 1980 in 30 metropolitan areas and then analyzed, using multiple regression to identify factors which could explain variations among metropolitan areas. The study found extreme price variations. From 1975 to 1980, for example, the price of a standard residential lot increased as little as 31 percent in one area, while rising 176 percent in another. Over 80 percent of the variation in lot price increases was explainable by a model combining land supply and demand factors. In their order of importance, the factors were an index of regulatory restrictions, population increases, per capita income increases, and job increases. The analysis suggests that public regulatory, infrastructure, and tax policies can significantly affect land supply and demand and, in turn, prices. Communities that choose to manage growth must monitor land supplies and demands and adjust their policies to maintain land availability to ensure competitive noninflationary land markets. Otherwise, major increases in land prices for housing and businesses may result
