Agglomeration Effects and Liquidity Gradients in Local Rental Housing Markets

Item Type Monograph (Working Paper)
Abstract This paper empirically analyzes the relation between local liquidity in rental housing markets and urban agglomeration e�ects. Using listed rent o�ers from online market platforms, I study the cross-sectional variation of rental market liquidity. Local liquidity is negatively related to the distance to nearby located urban Agglomeration centers, manifesting in a decreasing liquidity gradient. I show that Agglomeration externalities expose local rental markets to a systematic liquidity risk. Furthermore, more thinly traded rental markets o�er lower capitalization rates for investors.
