Housing during and after the pandemic: an exploration of immediate and structural effects of COVID-19 on housing markets

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, there have been immediate effects on housing production, prices and transactions, but there is also speculation about more structural effects, in part related to the wider impact of the pandemic on our economy and changing preferences for ways of living. There has been a series of new challenges for government authorities in relation to a provision of new measures and guidelines against the spread of the virus. In our contribution, we give an overview of the most visible short term effects and speculations about longer term impacts of the pandemic on the housing sector. We do this for three central aspects of the housing markets: production (‘supply’), prices and transactions (‘markets’) and preferences (‘demand’).
