Volatility clustering in land markets
Article publication date: 14 October 2014
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the volatility clustering in the return of land markets through both theoretical and empirical approaches.
Using extensive monthly panel data at the provincial level from 1986 to 2013, the authors identify the existence of time-correlated and time-varying returns in Canadian land markets.
Consistent with the proposed theory, volatility clustering in land markets tends to be observed in more populated areas.
The result has significant implications for portfolio management, economic theory and government policy by revealing the systematic pattern of volatility clustering in land markets.
