Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the sensitivity of the Kuwait housing market to major local and regional geo-political and economic events.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper examines the market dynamics of the housing market in Kuwait. Kuwait provides an interesting market to consider owing to its position as a major oil producer, its sensitivity to geo-political events and its unusual demographic characteristics.

Findings

The error-correction model highlights that market is relatively volatile, with evidence of mean-reverting behaviour. Only when the data is smoothed are their more consistent findings with respect to underlying fundamentals. This paper also examines the response of the market to seven regional and local events. Of particular interest is that the one event that results in a consistent significant response is domestic legislation directly concerned with housing. This has a far greater impact than local or regional geo-political events.

Originality/value

Very few papers have considered how economic and political shocks directly impact housing markets using an event study approach. Given its geographic location and also its economic dependence on oil, Kuwait is an interesting market to consider.

Abstract

Discusses issues resulting from a property developer or investor′s active involvement in urban restructuring strategies. Illustrates them with recent European examples of property‐focused regeneration strategies. Argues that the developer′s decision on whether and under what form to participate in such ventures should include analysis of the affect of programme implementation and the integration of the property development component into the ‘implementation structure′.
