Building affordable rental housing in unaffordable cities : a Canadian low-income housing tax credit by Marion Steele( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors propose a made-in-Canada Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) that can build on the lessons learnt by the equivalent U.S. program introduced in the 1980s. The LIHTC would provide tax credits to for-profit or nonprofit owners of rental housing that is used for long-term low-income housing."--Page 2 of cover

Alternative constant-quality price indexes for modest houses and condominiums in Kitchener Waterloo by Richard J Goy( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quality-adjusted price indexes for modest-price houses and condominiums, "starter" homes, are needed for the construction of home ownership affordability indexes for renters and for accurate information about market price cycles. This study estimates an array of prices indexes for this purpose. The basic statistical method used for most of the indexes estimated by this study is hedonic regression. Flexible relative price indexes, which allow the relative price of house characteristics to vary over time, are estimated, as are fixed relative price indexes, which assume that the prices of all characteristics change at the same rate. Also estimated are repeat sales indexes. These are not based on a hedonic regression but on a simple regression run on the prices of only those properties trading twice within the period. Roughly, this method takes the quality-adjusted price change as equal to the percentage change in the price of a property, averaged over all properties selling twice. The repeat sales method implicitly assumes that all properties change in price at the same rate. The hedonic-based indexes are estimated separately for all houses, all condominiums and for starter homes. The data are Multiple Listing Service date for Kitchener-Waterloo for 1988 to 1990. The most striking result is the strong similarity among the estimated indexes. For example, all indexes for houses and condominiums reach their peak in the first quarter of 1990. It is noteworthy that the repeat sales indexes
Hedonic price indexes and multiple listing service average prices for Canadian census metropolitan areas, 1990 to 1993 by Marion Steele( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade Canadian cities have seen booms and busts in house prices of a size unprecedented in the postwar period. These have had major impacts on the affordability of home ownership, on construction and on household wealth. This study aims to strengthen the analysis of swings in house prices by providing new indexes and by assessing the usefulness of the average Multiple Listing Service (MLS) price. The new price indexes are based on home owners' estimates of value, 1990-1993, adjusted to control for differences in the quality of house"--Abstract, p. i
Literature review on the tenure decision over the life cycle by Marion Steele( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a literature review that aims to include all studies related to housing tenure choice over the life cycle which analyze Canadian data and which have been published in the last decade. Studies using non-Canadian data and older studies are covered more selectively, often in abbreviated form. Literature published in economics journals is given high priority, but journals publishing articles by geographers, planners, and sociologists are also cited. The citations discuss the following aspects of each study: the study objectives; methods, models, and data used; results; and conclusions. Discussion of the article's merits and faults is also provided. The implications of the results for the current Canadian housing market are also discussed and gaps in the literature are identified

The Demand for Housing in Canada by Marion Steele( )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The intention of this monograph is to use 1971 Census data to determine the influences underlying three housing consumption decisions. The first decision is the separate-dwelling decision, or equivalently, the decision whether or not to be a household head. This decision is generally ignored in housing studies using cross-section data but it is logically prior to the other two decisions examined here, the tenure decision and the quantity-of-housing decision. The major focus of the analysis is on the economics of these housing decisions and, specifically, on the relative effects of income components and wealth. ..."--Preface

Methods for evaluating homeownership by Andrejs Skaburskis( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report considers three methods for evaluating the relative advantages of tenure options. It identifies the main attributes that are associated with tenure options that may matter to policymakers and assesses the extent to which benefit/cost analysis, contingent valuation and behavioural research can assess the value of the attributes. It starts by listing the private and public benefits and costs attributed to homeownership and rental. Market failures and imperfections that may influence the consumer's choice are also identified, to help develop the rationale for public programs and to establish whether or not the federal government should enact policies that affect the decision to be a home owner or renter. The importance of the economic, cultural and physical environment is discussed to show the nature of the qualifications that may accompany any conclusion regarding tenure decisions. The report summarizes the methods and links them to the evaluation of the main costs and benefits of homeownership. The report concludes with a proposal for a limited focus, low cost strategy for estimating the costs and benefits of homeownership. Under this proposal, the cost of homeownership as compared with private rental and with social housing would be estimated for a representative household. This would be done for various household types, such as a female single-parent, modest income household. This would constitute a base estimate which could then be combined with qualitative information to
