Hedonic Price Modeling of New Residential Property Values in Xi’an City, China

Kai Liu, Toshiaki Ichinose


This study analyzed new residential property values of Xi’an City in March, 2014. Results show that accessibility indices, such as distance to CBD, have been well capitalized into the residential property values. Particularly, a within-zone housing unit is sold 9.4% more than if it was outside the attendance zone of a Key Primary School, i.e. home buyers have how much willingness-to-pay for the high-quality educational resource. Another corollary is got that the accessibility to subway stations has not significantly been capitalized, only with a low premium reflecting in the real estate market of Xi’an City. Considered that spatial local singularities caused by unobserved variables or estimation bias can be associated with multi-regression errors, this study herein has explored an unconventional viewpoint to residual problem, which combines the regional differences (coming from real world) and the spatial distributions of singularities (feedback from data). Furthermore, whole samples are classified into 5 agglomerations for revealing the underlying reasons about the future trend and variation of real estate market within each region. It is effective to provide scientific basis of decision making for the real estate investors and planners.
