International Journal of Housing Markets and Analysis

Edited by: Richard Reed, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia

The Journal of Housing Markets and Analysis, launching in 2008, aims to provide an international forum for the interchange of information and ideas relating to housing, housing markets and the interaction thereof. The focus is placed on the interface between academic research and practical application by disseminating new research findings alongside articles related to everyday professional practice. Academic papers are refereed to the highest academic standard through double blind peer review. Overall, the papers provide a unique contribution to understanding international housing markets from both a detailed and broader perspective.

The editor now invites contributions for the first volume of the journal. Articles which detail practice and methodology in international housing markets will be actively encouraged. The journal will publish:

  • peer reviewed papers illustrating the latest research, trends and developments in the housing field;

  • case studies detailing examples of best practice, and solutions to everyday problems; and

  • law reports assessing and discussing new legislation.

Coverage will include, although is not limited to:

  • housing market analysis including broader aggregate markets using a large-scale approach;

  • examining individual houses including price, design and cost factors;

  • depreciation and obsolescence factors affecting housing;

  • high-density housing, especially inner-city and upmarket trends;

  • social housing considerations and influences;

  • geographic information systems and the use of mapping programs to understand housing trends;

  • demographics and the relationship with housing, e.g. unemployment rates;

  • trends in low-cost housing including viable alternatives;

  • housing affordability including the option of renting vs buying;

  • the effect of financial factors (e.g. interest rates) on housing markets;

  • valuing housing markets and individual houses;

  • first-time buyers or first home owners entering the housing market;

  • the effect of government decisions on housing;

  • taxation of housing such as for council rating purposes;

  • emerging housing markets such as third world countries and developing nations;

  • conversion and modification of houses, e.g. to embrace sustainability;
