Abstract

This paper examines whether the Mortensen-Pissarides matching model can account for the housing market facts, most of all the empirical anomaly known as ‘price dispersion’. Our main finding is that the model can account for the three basic facts of housing market (namely, the existence of price dispersion, the positive correlation between housing price and trading volume, and between housing price and time-on-the market), without any restrictive assumption and in a very simple framework.
